The Social Network: As Unoriginal As Its Poster?

by Lewis Manalo

David Fincher’s new film The Social Network, about the founding of Facebook, comes out next month, and it looks….really lame. Aside from the bizzare trailer that opens with an odd rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep” and a voyeuristic montage of random personal photos, somebody in marketing isn’t helping the movie look very original by rocking out with a one sheet that’s clearly a copy of the Criterion cover image of The Man Who Fell to Earth.

Who the heck wants to see a serious movie about Facebook anyway?
