Facebook Movie Trailer: Timberlake, Radiohead Cover


The trailer for The Social Network, Fight Club director David Fincher’s film about Facebook (out October 1), just hit the Web and it’s full of music: Justin Timberlake even acts in the clip, which is soundtracked by a version of Radiohead’s “Creep” performed by an all-girl Belgian choir. Best of all: the movie looks really good. Watch below.

The Social Network focuses on Mark Zuckerberg (played by Adventureland‘s Jesse Eisenberg), who founded Facebook in 2004 in his Harvard dorm room, and his partners: Sean Parker, Facebook’s first president, played by Timberlake, and Eduardo Saverin, its first business manager, played by Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus).

The film’s connections to music go deeper than Radiohead covers and Timberlake. As previously reported, Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor is writing and recording the score to the movie. “We’re nearing the completion of this and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out,” the NIN rocker said. “[The movie’s] really fucking good. And dark!”
