First Facebook Themed Poster For The Social Network image
We have the first ever poster for The Social Network, and it’s weird. Since this is a movie about the founders of Facebook, you’d think the poster design would be pretty simple. Make it look like a Facebook page. Instead they’ve done something weird. And messy. And awkward.

They pay homage to Facebook with a weird browser bar on the far right side of the poster. I have no idea why it’s on the side of the poster, I’ve never seen a browser set up like that. If they’d simply put it at the top of the poster, not only would it be easier to read, it would actually look more like a web browser, which I’d think is what they’re going for, otherwise have the scroll bars at the bottom of the poster? Mostly it's about Jesse Eisenberg's face with words written over it. I'm pretty sure I've never seen that on Facebook. Probably because it makes it hard to read.

This feels like a missed opportunity. Here it is, the first poster for The Social Network. Click it for a high-res version.
