New Trailer for STEVE JOBS Shows His Dark Side

Michael Fassbender

There’s a new trailer out today for the other Steve Jobs movie, the one starring Michael Fassbender as the late Apple guru Steve Jobs. The first teaser trailer debuted in May.

Danny Boyle‘s upcoming drama, written by Aaron Sorkin, reportedly has only three scenes – the release of the Macintosh, his move to NeXT and the launch of the Mac – but it looks like this stretches far beyond three scenes. It looks like it will be a rather popular film when it opens October 9th.

Judging by this trailer I get the feeling the fact that the Irishman may not look like Steve Jobs at all, will be completely irrelevant as he feels a lot more like him than other Jobs we’ve seen before. Unfortunately, looks more like a made for TV movie than anything else. Besides, can’t take Seth Rogen seriously, that face just makes me laugh. Check out the trailer for yourself.

Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award® winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin and Academy Award® winner Christian Colson. Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
