‘The Social Network’ Wants More Of Your Sweet, Sweet Money

"Now, observe how the two girls use the cup."

Good news! You’re going to have the opportunity to spend another $12 on seeing The Social Network this weekend. Then, on Tuesday you can go out and spend more money on your own copy when it’s released on home video. Your ticket purchase will help push it to $200 million worldwide, and in turn you get a warm place to hang out for a few hours. Maybe you can get some nachos too. It’s a good deal for everybody.

Sadly, the nasty side-effect to this is that Justin Timberlake is an actor now. We have to just accept it, I guess. Or you could stay home in protest and not see this year’s Best Picture. Then you’ll look like a jerk. Oh God, this is Slumdog Millionaire all over again, isn’t it? (Variety)
