“The Social Network” won’t be in theaters until October, but the so-called Facebook movie has a trailer (below) that will leave viewers wanting more. In the film Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg, while Justin Timberlake (Sean Parker) also has a staring role.
The movie is based on Ben Mezrich’s book, “The Accidental Billionaires,” an account of the birth and growth of Facebook. Mezrich was unable to interview Zuckerberg during his research (because he was not given access) and filled in a lot of details by speaking with third parties and Zuckerberg’s current list of enemies (i.e.: Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin and the Winklevoss twins – both whom filed lawsuits against Facebook)
For the pro-Zuckerberg Facebook story, RaceTalk blogger Kyle Austin recently reviewed David Kirkpatrick’s new book, “The Facebook Affect.”
