The Social Network Preview/Synopsis

The Social Network October 1

Directed by David Fincher ( Seven, The Game, Benjamin Button ) Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Joseph Mezzelo, Rooney Mara, Rashinda Jones, Max Minghella, Brenda Strong. Written by Aaron Sorkin ( The West Wing, Charlie Wilson's War ) Cinematography by Jeff Cronenweth (K-19: Widowmaker, One Hour Photo ) Edited by Oscar nominees Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall ( Benmjamin Button ) Original music by Trent Reznor ( Nine Inch Nails ) and Atticus Ross ( The Book Of Eli )

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history... but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes "The Social Network," a film that proves you don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, and Ceán Chaffin and based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich.

Rated PG-13 for sexual content, drugs and alcohol use and language. 121 min.

Oscar chances ? Looking pretty good so far from rave early reviews. Biggest chances are for picture and screenwriting. Possible for score. Maybe a supporting actor nod but I'm feeling that is a long shot, as the male supporting category this year is loaded more than it has been in years.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
