Sony Pictures have just released the first teaser trailer for The Social Network, otherwise known as ‘the Facebook movie’, released in the US on October 1 (we’ll have to wait until November 25).

The story is based on the book The Accidental Billionaires which chronicles the creation of Facebook in 2004 by best friends and Harvard graduates Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin.

The byline for the film, “you can’t make 500 million friends without making a few enemies” sounds like it’s not just aimed at geeks but could be a gripping story of the highs and lows of friendship, business and power.

It stars Jesse Eisenberg who we loved in The Squid and The Whale. Plus look out for Justin Timberlake in a minor role.

Does this sounds like a movie you’ll be seeing?
