    Remember that teaser for "The Expendables" that was basically just a roll call of the film's stars? "The new teaser for "The Social Network," aka "The Facebook Movie," is only marginally more illuminating.

    To be fair, though we don't get to see any footage from the film, it's pretty clear that Aaron Sorkin's script (based on Ben Mezrich's 2009 book "The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal") doesn't hesitate to cast Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as the weasel some people think he is.

    If you're new to Earth, the film is directed by David Fincher and stars Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg, and co-stars Andrew Garfield (currently in the Spider-Man casting mix), Rashida Jones, Justin Timberlake and some woman named Stream, who appears to be The Queen of the Uncredited Appearances.

    "The Social Network" opens Oct. 1.
