    Facebook users are all a'twitter over the site's latest redesign.

    The Social Network, a film about the early days of Facebook, has released a its movie trailer.

    In it, potential viewers get their first taste of watching Jesse Eisenberg playing Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg on the campus of Harvard, played by Johns Hopkins.

    The trailer is set to the Scala Choir's cover of Radiohead's first hit, Creep, indicating what it seems to think about Zuckerberg and the venture capitalist who helped him sell the idea to investors, Sean Parker (played by Justin Timberlake).


    The film, adapted from Ben Mezrich's book The Accidental Billionaires by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, is directed by David Fincher and features plenty of chiaroscuro cinematography typical of Fincher.

    The script has made the rounds online, and the story paints a picture of a ruthless Zuckerberg conniving to keep control as the company began to take off.

    The film is due to be released in early October, so you'll have to wait. The company has repeatedly suggested that Mezrich's book and the script are inaccurate.

    Jackson West probably won't be buying a ticket, or any shares in Facebook.
