Damage Control

Considering it's August and David Fincher's new film about the beginnings of one of the world's biggest internet companies is still a good five weeks away from its wide release -- it is making huge waves. And some, it seems, are afraid to drown...

These next few weeks ahead of us will explode with Fincher-related and of course The Social Network-related news items, which should bring forth some cool new interviews to look forward to; hopefully with a less and less camera shy director. I am not expecting many more trailers to be release, probably a host of TV spots and they might do some scene previews online. And of course the biggest moment of this fall's cinematic landscape -- the movie itself, which I am, all initial scepticisms aside, very much looking forward to and excited about.

With The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo following closely we might even have a chance not to experience a complete Fincher blackout after TSN's release; which pretty much happened after Zodiac and Benjamin Button... where first you were crushed with marketing's ultimate wave and then left with dead air. As a matter of fact, with interest in Fincher's next project peaking, there may be a lot of coverage even early on, which of course is what I am hoping for. And what I hope for even more: I would love to see Fincher tackle a new music video one of these days... it's been a while.

For now here are two cool articles about 'The Social Network' making splashes: Producer Scott Rudin not cutting a bare breasts / cocaine scene (sounds like fun, the nude part) and what possible effects the movie might have on Facebook's brand image.

Big thanks to contributors Fitz and Gould!

  1. Shouldn't the headline read "Rumour Control"? (Alien3) ;-)
