Ashton Kutcher fans and Steve Jobs Fans, rejoice! Not only do we have some awesome, goose bump giving teaser material for you guys, but we also have a final release date for the Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS!
The Joshua Michael Stern directed film charts Steve Job’s inspirational ascension from college dropout to one of the most admired tech heads and entrepreneurs ever. It’s a purported cinematic celebration of Apple’s visionary leader and the rebellious and unorthodox way he wanted to lead his company.
As skeptical as iPhone Antdiote may have been in the beginning about this biopic, the promotional material and buzz leading up to the release is getting us excited and changing our mind about how much we think we’re going to like the movie.
As well as Kutcher in the lead role, other stars include James Woods, Dermot Mulroney, and Josh Gad as Apple’s other founder, Steve Wozniak.
The independent film was first glimpsed by a lucky few at the Sundance Film Festival in January and according to some Apple employees in the crowd who knew the man, Kutcher did an uber awesome admirable job playing Steve.
The film was originally due to be released on April 19th but delays (thought to be reshoots or the desire for more time to create better buzz) meant that everyone had to just cool their butts for a while… and that while is almost over!
You can see jOBS on August 16.
Here is the official promotional poster released yesterday:
And you can see the trailer for jOBS here. And it’s pretty damn excitement making!
The other film biopic of Steve Jobs, the big budget Sony produced and Aaron Sorkin written ‘official biopic’, is still in development and, similar to an Apple product release, is being kept well under wraps…
Happy viewing kids!
