Sportsbooks Prepare For Opening Weekend Of The Social Network

October 1st, 2010 – Written By Bonnie

There is one thing online sportsbooks are talking about today, and it is not week 4 NFL Matchups. Instead it is the opening of the much anticipated film about the popular social network that has taken over the Internet, Facebook. The film The Social Networks opens world wide today and is expected to pull in quite a crowd during its opening weekend. So much so that online sportsbooks are offering entertainment betting odds on how well box office ticket sales will turn out from opening day, October 1st, 2010 to October 3rd. If the box office sees as many people buying tickets as they are hearing talk about the film, if will undoubtedly be a good weekend for all who were involved in making the film.

The Social Network is related to the story on how one of the most popular online social networks came to be. It has been said that the real creators of Facebook, a group of former Harvard students, were not involved in the making of the film, but the story is speculated to be as close to the real story as one could get without having Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow founders give their input on the actual events that took place.

The movie tells the story of how young students turned a school project into a multi billion dollar company. Like most young billionaires, there came some trouble along the climb to fame, one that required much legal action and a big percentage of the money. The film is expected to do quite well, seeing as how Facebook is everywhere you look, both online and off. Facebook is not only the most successful social network website of all time, but it is also one of the best ways for people and business to reach millions of people at once. Facebook has nearly 500 million active members and that number continues to grow every day. There are even betting odds as to how soon Facebook will reach one billion members, and they are clearly on their way to reaching that goal.

For the time being, the media attention is on The Social Network that started their opening weekend today. Tonight will be a busy night at the box office and online bettors can get in on the action by placing a wager on just how well the film will do in box office sales for the opening of The Social Network.
