The recent shock news that Sony had commissioned West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin to knock together a screenplay about how Facebook redefined just about every paradigm open to redefinition was greeted with a mixture of horror, disbelief and out-and-out jaw-dropping incredulity among Reg readers. Well, we've pulled off a bit of a …
I'd watch it.
That ending would be worth it imo.
Ah a smile for a friday :)
Gotta love Fridays @ El Reg!
I will be sorely disappointed if the film does not resemble this story board! The ending is astounding!
Must be a Friday!
The only person on the edge of their seat...
... Seems to be Zuckerberg, from the story board.
I want one of those...
I want a giant james bond killbot.

FACEBOOK: THE COMPUTER GAME
Essentially a shoddily executed platform game developed in the space of 3 weeks.
This is possibly
... the only entertaining thing to ever have had the word "Facebook" in the title.
Bet it makes over 3.5 Linden Dollars in it's first weekend alone!!
And I loved the dual scene 3s rather than the usual scene 3/4. Nice bit of parallel plot development that.
...hot eye-candy most Hollywood action films have? Oh, yeah, right, it's about software programmers. No one would ever believe it. Unless it was "FaceSwordBookFish" the movie.
I was expecting more
Poking, vampires, and poker.
Thank F*** it's Reg Friday
The Playmobil's back! It's been too long...
I'm lovin' the endin'.
It's an Aaron Sorkin film, so where's the walking and talking? The Gilbert and Sullivan references? Where's the strong female lead? Joshua Malina?
Thank the gods for improvements in technology...
The storyboard does not promise as much action as I would expect from an epic of this kind. On the other hand, at least we are not exposed to the wooden acting talents of the current Hollywood set.
All you need now is a catchy tag for the filming process (like Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's "Supermarionation"). How about "Plastination"?
Thanks guys, good work :)
Mmmmm, forbidden website
You can get sacked at the company I work for just for using the search term "facebook" in a search or for accidentally viewing a webpage that tries to load content from the facebook.com domain. As this site frightens them so much it's controversy level is through the roof so i'd organise a group mutiny and group sickie to go see this at the cinema - however, I fear that as the movie starts, an iPrison logo would come up saying that the content was banned!
...that just like every other film that has a "computers scene" there'll be suspiciously little use mouse.
And some dodgy 'zooming in' graphics with a green box & crosshairs, and accompanied by a slide-y high pitched 'science' noise as a screenwipe zoom occurs, followed by the pixelated view re-rendering to reveal the high res close-up.
And a mention of "getting in through the back door portal".
WOOOOOOOOOOO Love the ending!!! :D
That just saved me $10 plus snack costs.
Come back, we need you NOW!!!
"In a world..."
The nauseating, err, touching side story of family reunion and brain implants?
No Spoiler Alert!
I've not had a film ruined like this since someone revealed the plot twist in "The Crying Game".
... El reg surely needs to set up a movie production company. At last, Blighty has its own movie industry.
