The Facebook Movie Poster Channels Benjamin Button

The official poster for The Social Network, David Fincher’s film adaptation of Ben Mezrich’s juicy tell-all The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook — A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, is all tag line and search bar — with nary a glimpse of Justin Timberlake. Entertainment Weekly says that Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has a “very American Psycho” look, but we couldn’t help but notice the similarities between this poster and the artwork for one of Fincher’s own movies, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Click through and let us know if you agree.

Maybe Fincher just has a soft spot for closeup portraiture? The Social Network opens in theaters on October 1, and word is that a trailer will drop in July. For more info, check out the film’s cleverly-titled marketing site, 500millionfriends.com.
