The film ‘The Social Network’ will probably be the most awaited movie this year, as it kicks off the 48th New York Film Festival this September 24, 2010.

As it has been reported since its announcement last year, The Social Network features the founding story about the most popular social networking site, Facebook founders especially Mark Zuckerberg.

The film, which was directed by David Fincher, had been gone through a lot of controversies, which made the movie more exciting to watch.

A published article says that “Dustin Moscovitz, co-founder of Facebook disapproves the film because that the trailers for the movie seemed a lot more exciting than what actually happened during the early days of Web sites.”

But probably the most talked-about controversy is when Mark Zuckerberg himself did not seem to like the movie, and “wished the movie had not been made.”

The movie stars Jessie Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg, and Andrew Garfield as Eduardo Saverin, a co-founder of Facebook.

Other stars in the movie are Brenda Song, Armie Hammer, Max Minghella, and Justin Timberlake.

The film was written by Aaron Sorkin, and adapted from the 2009 non-fiction book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich.

The regular film showing in US theaters is on October 1, 2010; while later in other parts of the world.
