Sept. 24, 2010— -- Since the movie trailer hit the Web this summer, millions of Facebook Friends have been waiting to see a film dramatizing Facebook's meteoric rise from Harvard's campus to global Internet phenomenon.

"The Social Network" will hit theaters on Oct. 1, but already the movie has sparked thousands of conversations, not to mention wall posts.

In the film, Facebook's young creator, Mark Zuckerberg, is depicted as a cutthroat social climber who's not afraid to stab some backs to create his web site. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's script is based on court documents and a partly fictionalized book, "The Accidental Billionaires."

Just yesterday, it was revealed that Zuckerberg will donate $100 million to public schools in Newark, N.J., a decision that some argue is intended to counter bad PR surrounding the film.

Still, Zuckerberg himself has called the movie nothing more than fiction and claims he has no plans to see it.

In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer in July, Zuckerberg said, "I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded."
