Do you see Fassbender as Steve Jobs?

The biopic has been through some rough times, with many slated cast members leaving and going, and the film being switched from Sony to Universal Pictures.

The film is set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin.

      steve jobs the sequel “steve ‘no’ jobs, the bitter years lol
      why stop at 1998, when joe citizen would never have heard his name if not for events that occurred after 98 but before his timely demise? oh well, more hollywood rubbish to not see, not like hollywood-wallSt-capitolHill- are linked like a daisy chain or anything. the ultimate advertisement, a hyped movie full off ‘known’ actors. must be a hard one to pull off (no pun intended lol).

    This guy died of Aquired Immune Deficiancy Syndrome tbh, aggressive cancer is the common ‘smother’ term, understandably,
    but for me unless this is admitted in the movie its gonna be inaccurate. im so gutted that i do not have one cell that desires to view this unless its to repay a debt to society. 🙁

      I think you mean to say you do not have one brain cell. What an insipid thing you are.

      • SoylentGreen

        you ‘thought’ wrong.
        but, what does insipid mean?

      • Kr00

        You just proved my point. You’re a brain dead moron. Learn to read a dictionary, imbecile.
