Good news! You’re going to have the opportunity to spend another $12 on seeing The Social Network this weekend.
I knew it was only a matter of time before The Social Network inspired a copycat film. But I hardly expected said film to be a biopic on Karl Rove with Shia LeBeouf playing the Republican strategist. But like Costco on Acid, Hollywood can be a very strange place.
In the wake of The Social Network's success, the L.A. Times brings word that the new hot biopic circulating in Hollywood is the Wes Jones script for College Republicans, a dramedy about Karl Rove's college bid to become chief campus conservative under the tutelage of Lee Atwater. Among the many young hotties vying to play Rove (only in Hollywood!) is Shia LaBeouf…
Now that I think about it, I can totaly see why this might come together. A lot of people seem to hate Karl Rove, a lot of people seem to hate Shia LeBeouf, and I always have to pretend I know who they both are so I don't look stupid. It's the perfect fit. (Vulture)
Get outta there, Tom! You don't belong there!

Tomorrow, The Social Network hits theaters, and if the early buzz is any indication, it should be a major success. Even if it fails to deliver at the box office, critical reception has been so positive that the film is already considered an Oscar contender. And it’s easy to see why. After all, who doesn’t love a good story of betrayal? While the events depicted in The Social Network are hotly contested by Facebook co-creator Mark Zuckerberg, a film involving friends back stabbing friends over a billion dollar idea seems a lot more watchable than a film about some guys coding a website.
In honor of The Social Network, here are 13 classic betrayals from the world of cinema.
The Social Network is the movie of the year. If Coppola were into computers, this would be The Godfather. Should I have gone with Scorsese and Goodfellas? I think it’s…
The kid stays in the picture! Of course, the "picture" in question is The Social Network, and by "kid" I mean a controversial coke party scene featuring Justin Timberlake. According to Vulture, the scene in question features Napster co-founder Sean Parker (Timberlake) at a party where two girls offer coke to guests via their naked breasts. One of the girls is only 17. Director David Fincher has decided to leave the scene in the film despite the fact that a researcher involved in the production has admitted it is almost entirely fictional.
Representatives for Facebook have taken issue with the scene as well, but are you really going to trust what they have to say? They also claim to do everything in their power to keep predators from accessing their network, but I've never received so much as a warning.
There's already been a MySpace parody of The Social Network trailer and now comes the inevitable YouTube parody. It adds as much drama to a movie about a video website as anyone could hope for. Keyboard Cat even makes an appearance, although I'm not sure why he isn't a bigger character. His lackadaisical ivory-tickling still keeps YouTube afloat to this day.
Check out the parody trailer after the jump…
Jesse not happy.
A few weeks ago we showed you the full length trailer for David Fincher's The Social Network and you loved it as much as I did (don't defy, Daddy). Now FirstShowing has dug up what is most likely a one-minute commercial airing on some channel somewhere at some point in time. It replaces Radiohead's "Creep" with Kanye West's new single "Power," you know, for the kids. I watch a buttload of TV and haven't seen it yet, but I still have a slew of "Say Yes to the Dress" episodes sitting on my DVR. Sorry, I can't attend your thing tonight. My Friday is booked.
