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!

 

Drum roll….

 

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!

Coming along with all these updates regarding the two new biopics are pictures of Ashton Kutcher sporting a notably “Steve Jobs” look.  It shows we will be watching Ashton Kutcher as the lead in this show.  Something that’s also kinda cool, they even plan to begin shooting in the actual garage that Apple was started in.

 

It looks like things are starting to also roll along on another Steve Jobs movie.    Sony made the announcement earlier this week that Aaron Sorkin, the Academy Award winning screen writer for The Social Network, would modifying Isaacson’s biography Steve Jobs for the screen.  This comes along with additional word that Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder, would be hired as a consultant to help keeping the film true.

 

There should be more information coming up soon and we will definitely keep you updated on this interesting development!
