Seemingly doomed from the start, Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs was quickly forgotten and quietly shipped to a local Redbox near you. Now director Danny Boyle (who struck cinematic gold with Slum Dog Millionaire) is preparing to give the Apple founder a proper biopic with the upcoming film Steve Jobs, starring German actor Michael Fassbender as the man with the vision.
Equipped with a larger budget than the Kutcher predecessor, the film also features Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing executive Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley.
Set to hit theaters on October 9th, the film proves that regardless of how the company is performing, the world is still in awe of the man that helped launch the digital age. Explains Jobs in the trailer,“The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra. I sat in a garage and invented the future. Because artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands.”
