Steve Jobs movie full trailer image 001

Following a teaser trailer for the Steve Jobs movie we saw back in May, Universal on Wednesday released the full official trailer for the forthcoming flick.

“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,” teases Universal Pictures.

The trailer is two minutes and forty seconds long.

Written by Aaron Sorkin and based on the official Steve Jobs bio book by Walter Isaacson, ‘Steve Jobs’ stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, an original member of the Macintosh team, Jeff Daniels as John Sculley, former Apple CEO, and more.

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.

The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin and Academy Award winner Christian Colson.

Directed by Danny Boyle, the flick depicts Jobs’ childhood home in Los Altos, California and revolves around three pivotal moments in Apple’s history: the debut of the original Macintosh, the unveiling of the NeXT computer and the introduction of the iPod music player.

Sony had originally been set to produce the film, but the company dropped it and Universal Pictures took it up. The bio pic will release on Friday, October 9, 2015.

Though I don’t think they could have found an actor who looks less like Steve Jobs, I still have a good feeling about the acting, screenplay and production quality.

What do you think about this in-depth trailer?

And will you be buying a ticket come this fall?

    Looks weak.

  • Philippe Vézina

    Still think Pirates of Silicon Valley is the best.

    • Dexter SherloConan

      agree

    • M2

      Agree.

  • Lance Baker

    Meh?

  • bigmacdev

    I was going to buy a ticket, but not after seeing this trailer. I saw Jobs and thought that wasn’t too great. This looks worse!

  • Richard

    they needed to add the iphone keynote. I think the iphone is more of a game changer than anything.

  • sivkai

    Looks great, except Fassbender looks nothing like Jobs :/

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      I vote Ashton.

  • chexrex

    I’m looking forward to it. Its been suggested that the movie should have included the iphone keynote. Those keynotes are already well documented and we’ve seen them a million times–they’re all over the internet. The real fascinating story is behind the scenes, and how he lost Apple and then came back to save it.

    Rather watch broke back mountain

  • Ugh…just what did they do with the stellar cast? Not even a decent background score in the trailer? I have really high hopes for this, but Fassbender just doesn’t cut as Jobs 🙁

  • Tim

    RIP Ashton. 🙁

  • jilex

    Another?

  • Bob

    I’m going to get hate but the Ashton Kutcher version is still one of my favourites.

    Obviously we all are looking at a different trailer. As a person who read Walter Isaacson biography on Steve Jobs I must say that I genuinely think that Michael Fassbender captured Steve’s intensity. Yes Ashton Kutcher may look like Steve but his interpretation was dull and lacking. So what that Michael doesn’t look Steve. Did Jennifer Lopez look like Selena? No but she captured her spirit and that’s more important than anything.
    Some of you people are so greedy, you want everything and even still it’s not enough.
