On October 1, 2010, "The Social Network," Aka "The Facebook Movie" hits AMC theatres. Facebook isn't the only big-name tech company getting the silver-screen treatment as Deadline reports that Michael London's Groundswell Productions and producer John Morris have optioned the movie rights for the book, "Googled: The End of the World As We Know It."
The book, by Ken Auletta, is the story of Google and its founders, Sergrey Brin and Larry Page. Unlike "The Social Network," which takes a more critical look at Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Auletta's book is more complimentary and is more about whether or not the ideals within Brin and Page's vision for Google can outlast the company's rise and influence.
Plans for the film are still in the early stages and we'll keep you posted on any new developments. Our only question is, "when do we get to see a big-screen movie about Apple?" Sure, »
As if people didn't hate Facebook enough as it is, now we've got another thing we can hold against it. Apparently all the positive buzz surrounding Sony and David Fincher's upcoming Facebook movie The Social Network has inspired other studios to seek out similar tech industry success stories. Deadline New York  reports that Groundswell Productions (Milk, The Informant!) have acquired the rights to Googled: The End of the World As We Know It, the story of the founding of the world's most popular search engine. Something tells me that this doesn't have nearly as much potential as the Facebook story, but maybe I'll be proven wrong. Google was created by Stanford Ph.D students Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and while there isn't the Harvard party scene or a polarizing personality like Mark Zuckerberg at the center of the story, the company did encounter some growing pains as it quickly took over the web. »
The full theatrical trailer is finally here and at last we're treated to the first real footage of the film...then why does it feel like I've already seen it?
This trailer starts off way slow, but then about 30 seconds into it we get into the meat of the trailer. But wait, it all seems so familiar. If you've seen (heard I should say) the previous trailer, then you'll already know what to expect. It's the exact same dialogue and audio clips we got before, but now we get footage to accompany it.
Honestly this feels like a cheap way to get an extra trailer out of the deal, because all of the drama and mystery associated with the previous trailer is gone. In fact I actually feel like the footage brings less to the table than just dialogue over a blank screen. I know many people are talking about »
