The new trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic “JOBS“, starring Ashton Kutcher has been finally released to the pubic. The plot of the film is billed as the “the story of Steve Jobs ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century”.
It will kick off as early as 1971 and will span three decades, all the way to the year 2000, when Jobs begins to the reach the height of his power. Steve Jobs was the creator of the Apple brand which has since become a revolutionary technological giant, with the release of the iPod, iPhone and iPad. Jobs died in October 2011 due to complications arising from pancreatic cancer
Josh Gad will play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, while the cast includes the likes of Dermot Mulroney, James Woods and Matthew Modine, who all make appearances on the trailer.
The film is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, who shot part of the film in the historic garage in Palo Alto, California where Jobs and Wozniak started Apple in 1976.
However, it has received a bit of criticism already with the real-life Wozniak telling Good Morning America: “What I saw was just so far from anything that really happened or said in those days.”
The film was set for release on April 19th (the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple) but was postponed so that Five Star Films and distributor Open Road could “create a buzz” for the film.
The film will have competition with The West Wing and The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin writing another Jobs movie based on the Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography.
