The new Facebook movie, Social Network has topped the box office in US taking in $23 million in the first weekend. By comparison the new Michael Douglas movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps scored only $10.1 million. The Social Network is directed by Fight Club’s David Fincher and produced by Kevin Spacey. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin and the story is based on Ben Mezrich’s book Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal. Jesse Eisenberg stars as young Mark Zuckerberg alongside Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster. The Social Network opens tomorrow with M-rating in Australia.

Here is the official Facebook Movie, Social Network trailer:

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.
