Sexy Trash "Likes" The Social Network
Go ahead, put it on your mini-feed.... Let the world know: I'm changing my relationship status.
Because I am IN LOVE with the trailer for "The Social Network."
When I first heard there was going to be a "Facebook movie," I could have vomited. And not good "I drank too much" vomit, but like "I have a stomach virus and didn't even do anything fun to achieve this..." vomit. But then I watched the trailer. And things changed.
Jesse Eisenberg sounds annoyingly similar to Michael Cera, who, although I LOVED "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," I generally can't stand. But it's not enough to drive me away from this film. Justin Timberlake and Disney Channel starlet Brenda song co-star/cameo (I have no idea how juicy their roles are...), but it's not even their presence that is drawing me in; it just looks genuinely great.
The chorus music used throughout the preview only adds intensity, and I am curious to see how dramatic the movie really is. It's not a new trick for movies to bring out the best bits for their previews, leaving audiences sitting in theaters saying "Well, this is not new information... I would have been better off watching the trailer and reading spoilers." But every so often, there are movies that DO NOT show all of the good parts in the previews and actually have some twists and/or laughs that you haven't already witnessed 5634665365 times...
The only thing that could make this trailer better is if one of my Facebook photos randomly appeared in the beginning segment. Me dressed as Bindi Irwin, perhaps... Because, believe me - that Facebook photo exists.
