The high-profile ‘Steve Jobs’ biopic, based on Walter Isaacson authorized biography of Apple’s mercurial co-founder, released today in select theaters across the United States and Universal posted a full scene on its YouTube channel to celebrate the launch.
In it, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Seth Rogen) warns Steve (played by Michael Fassbender) that the launch of NeXT, Jobs’s overpriced, cube-shaped workstation computer created during his wilderness years, will go down in history “as the single biggest failure in the history of personal computing.”
It is no secret that Apple executives aren’t thrilled by existing and upcoming Steve Jobs movies. The latest example: Steve’s widow Lauren Powell Jobs apparently “tried to kill” the upcoming Hollywood biopic by Sony Pictures (according to the Wall Street Journal, she tried to cease production on the Aaron Sorkin script multiple times).
Coincidentally or not, ABC News has now exclusively obtained never-before-seen footage of Apple’s mercurial founder, who can be seen addressing Apple executives the day before the release of the original iPhone in 2007.
Steve Jobs succumbed to cancer and died of respiratory arrest on this day four years ago. To commemorate the fourth anniversary of his tragic passing, current CEO Tim Cook, whom Jobs suggested as his successor to the Board of Directors, issued a company-wide email to employees.
The message, a copy of which was obtained by The Telegraph, praises Jobs as a visionary leader, a mentor and “a dear friend.”
The internal message wraps up by suggesting that employees honor Steve by “continuing the work he started, and for remembering both who he was and what he stood for.”
Following the inaugural ‘Steve Jobs’ trailer published this summer and a follow-up video released in August, Universal is now drumming up publicity ahead of the film’s theatrical release next month with yet another official trailer.
Directed by Danny Boyle with screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, ‘Steve Jobs’ debuted last week at the Telluride Film Festival and will be shown at the New York Film Festival on October 3 ahead of its scheduled theatrical release on October 9.
Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s’s ‘Steve Jobs’ film is scheduled to hit movie theaters in the United States on October 9 so movie producers began airing a brand new TV trailer on television in an effort to drum up publicity for the forthcoming flick.
The 60-second video flashes between scenes depicting Steve’s meticulous preparations for Apple’s carefully choreographed product presentations and ones reflecting on his troubled relationship with Lisa, Jobs’s first daughter who appears to be the ”heroine of the film” as the director put it.
A new movie about Apple’s legendary co-founder, titled ‘Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine,’ is scheduled to open in select theaters in less than two weeks and Mashable today released the first official trailer which provides an early look into the forthcoming documentary.
In addition to exploring the impact of Steve Jobs’ work on the society and our embrace of computers and technology, the 120-minute nonfictional documentary plays off the controversies that had surrounded Jobs’ persona for many years.
Directed by Alex Gibney, it apparently paints the picture of a “bold, brilliant and brutal” Steve Jobs, the description which did not sit well with Apple’s Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, who called it “an inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend” and ”not a reflection of the Steve I knew.”
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 first official teaser trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic is now live on YouTube. In it, we hear dialogue from lead actor Michael Fassbender, along with glimpses of actors Seth Rogan, Jeff Daniels, and Kate Winslet.
This movie, as you’re likely aware of, has suffered through numerous changes and setbacks, but it finally looks as if it’s shaping up for a definite release in October. Watch the full teaser trailer, and let us know what you think.
Becoming Steve Jobs, a highly anticipated Apple-endorsed biography of Apple’s mercurial co-founder and late CEO Steve Jobs, on Tuesday released on the iBooks Store, the Kindle Store and on Amazon.com.
Written by veteran Wall Street Journal and Fortune reporter Brent Schlender, who is 58 years old, and Rick Tetzeli, Executive Editor with Fast Company, the 464-page book published by The Crown Publishing Group offers new details of Jobs’ personal and professional life that did not quite get the treatment in Walter Isaacson’s biography that such a high-profile iconic figure in technology, media and arts deserves.
Apple is throwing itself behind the latest biography to tell the life of late co-founder Steve Jobs, ahead of its release on Tuesday. “Becoming Steve Jobs” by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli has elicited a response from Apple’s often-quiet press team, as to why it chose to provide interview access for the completion of the book.
The new Steve Jobs biography by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli is launching on iBooks this Tuesday and Apple is now offering an exclusive sneak peek into the prologue and first chapter, including Schlender’s first interview with Jobs when he moved to NeXT, as noted yesterday be the official iBooks Store account on Twitter.
‘Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader’ should appeal to everyone who — like CEO Tim Cook — felt that Walter Isaacson’s official biography did Apple’s legendary co-founder a great disservice.
