The movie The Social Network came out in 2010 and was supposed to tell the story of how Mark Zuckerberg developed Facebook and then dealt with the many lawsuits that followed. Zuckerberg had no involvement in the film, nor in the book it was based on. If you saw the movie, you’ll probably enjoy finding out some of the behind-the-scenes trivia about its production. For example:
7. Jesse Eisenberg used fencing lessons to get into character.
It makes a good deal of sense. Fencing has a lot to do with strategy and trying to outmaneuver your opponent, much like business in a way.
6. The opening scene took 99 takes.
There’s no real explanation for why this took so long. Maybe the actors were having trouble getting into character or maybe the director wanted to see it from different angles.
