Do you remember sitting in the theaters and seeing the preview for The Social Network for the first time? That super serious trailer with the creepy cover of Radiohead’s “Creep,” and the dark, foreboding David Fincher touch on what seemed…
It’s always fun to learn more about the personalities of the Silicon Valley celebrities that we read about day to day. The Winklevoss twins may not be day-to-day news these days (though they certainly were at the peak of The…
Divya Narendra, the guy that co-founded ConnectU with Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has joined Twitter. The Winklevii have been fun to keep up with Twitter, particularly when they reference Facebook. Hopefully Narendra’s presence will add to that equation. His only…

Awards season has been kind to The Social Network. At the Golden Globes, the film won Best Director (David Fincher), Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin), Best Score (Trent Reznor), and Best Picure, Drama. Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield had been nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for their roles as Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin respectively.
The Academy Awards nominations list has just been released, and everybody’s favorite Facebook movie is up for 8 awards. These include: Best Picture, Best Direction, Actor in a Leading Role, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Mixing, and Music (Original Score).
Having heard about two decades worth of Trent Reznor’s musical offerings, I think the word "original" is a bit of a stretch these days, but the score did work for the film, if you ask me.
The Golden Globes were last night, and The Social Network (the movie about the founding of Facebook), did pretty well, as expected. The film was nominated for six awards, and won four.
Director David Fincher (whose work also includes Seven and Fight Club) won Best Director. Aaron Sorkin (of A Few Good Men and West Wing fame) won Best Screenplay. Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who scored the film, won Best Score, and the movie itself won Best Picture, Drama.
The Social Network, the hit movie depicting the founding of Facebook, makes its way to DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday. Sony Pictures Entertainment said last week in a press release that it was set to cross the $200 million mark at the worldwide box office, before being re-released in 600 theaters in the U.S. on Friday.
The Social Network led the box office over the weekend. The film, which opened on Friday, took in $23 million, opening in 2,771 theaters, according to BoxOfficeMojo.
The film grossed more than doubled the number 2, 3, and 4 movies – Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and The Town. There were only two other major releases to open at the same time: Case 39 and Let Me In. These both brought in only just over $5 million a piece.
