The best part of “The Social Network”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 

Probably the most memorable part of The Social Network was the full trailer to True Grit.

The movie looks most impressive. However, the trailer pretty much told the whole story. The whole thing.

That’s the double-edged sword of remaking a classic film that canonized a revered actor: most people already know the story.

So why go to the film? There are still plenty of reasons: the directors have a little bit of a reputation themselves. So do the cast.

But watching True Grit (2010) will be a different experience because most viewers will go into the film feeling like they’ve already seen it.

And watching a film the second time is a different experience than watching it the first time. It changes everything.
