Facebook: The Movie
They are finally making a movie about Facebook and how it all started. The movie is called The Social Network and is set to come out on October 1, 2010. See the trailer below:
I don’t know if this is going to be a good movie. I definitely think it looks interesting and that people will see it but I don’t think it will be a hit. People want to know the history but probably won’t flock to the theater’s on opening night to see it on screen. The rle of Mark Zuckerberg is played by Jesse Eisenberg. To some, a movie about Facebook seems over the top…maybe it is to some extent, but at the same time it is a brilliant idea! Facebook has become a way of life and there is no reason not to take it as far as they can.
Not only did Facebook inspire this movie, but Twitter inspired a new sitcom. Have you heard of the Twitter profile @shitmydadsays? How about the book? Well, now they are turning it into a sitcom on CBS which will be starring William Shatner and set to begin this fall. Justin Halpern’s Twitter profile is what started it all. I definitely recommend checking out some of his tweets, they can be pretty hilarious. Check out the preview for the show below:
The show looks cute and I hope to turn in to a couple episodes but from the trailer it seems a little forced. I don’t know if it is the acting but the jokes seem a little forced. Maybe Sh*t My Dad Says should have only gone as far as the book. None the less, I still look forward to seeing how the show pans out.
What are your thought about The Social Network and Sh*t My Dad Says?
