Facebook Movie Trailer Released

10:15 AM -- Columbia Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for The Social Network, the upcoming movie about the founding of Facebook .

Though the trailer (below) doesn't actually show any performances, it manages to accuse Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of being a "punk," "genius," "prophet," "traitor," and "billionaire" -- at least one of which we know to be empirically true.

The recently released movie poster shows actor Jesse Eisenberg looking remarkably like Zuck, behind block letters that read "YOU DON'T GET TO 500 MILLION FRIENDS WITHOUT MAKING A FEW ENEMIES." Intense.

  • In an odd move, Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) has revamped its Kindle app for the Apple iPad to include audio and video capabilities -- features not available on its Kindle device. For now, only 13 titles take advantage of these features, but it's still "a little risky for [Amazon CEO Jeff] Bezos to highlight the advantages of his rival’s hardware," AllThingsD's Peter Kafka writes.

  • MSNBC is relaunching its Website in single-page-only format, declaring that "it’s no longer about page views." Forgoing banner ads, the company is selling large, customizable ads instead.
