Glenda Jackson: Actress and former Labour MP. Two-time Oscar winner and former Labour MP Glenda Jackson returns to acting Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson set aside her acting career after becoming a Labour Party MP in 1992. Four years ago, Jackson, who represented the Greater London constituency of Hampstead and Highgate, announced that she would stand down the 2015 general election – which, somewhat controversially, was won by right-wing prime minister David Cameron's Conservative party. The silver lining: following a two-decade-plus break, Glenda Jackson is returning to acting. Now, Jackson isn't – for the time being – returning to acting in front of the camera. The 79-year-old is to be featured in the Radio 4 series Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money, described on their website as a “mash-up” adaptation of 20 Emile Zola novels collectively known as "Les Rougon-Macquart." Part 1 of the three-part Radio 4 series will be broadcast daily during an »

“I don’t talk that way,” Wozniak said in an email to Bloomberg. “The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the right message, at least partly,” he said. “I felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated.”
Wozniak is referring to the scene in the trailer in which the Wozniak character tells Jobs, played by Michael Fassbender, that he has taken credit for Apple Inc. without actually doing much.
“What do you do? You’re not an engineer. You’re not a designer. You can’t put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I »

Now here comes trailer 2.0, a more rounded look at the movie and, if we’re honest, the most amazing, full-featured promo anyone has ever debute... Sorry. Got a little Jobs hyperbole on us there.With a script by Aaron Sorkin based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the man, Steve Jobs focuses on three big moments in his corporate life: the launch of the Mac; NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company); and the iPod, the game-changing player he spearheaded after his triumphant return.This new trailer has a lot more of the supporting cast around Michael Fassbender as Jobs: Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak questions his contributions to the original development of the early Apple machines, while Kate Winslet plays marketing chief Joanna Hoffman, »
Now in theaters, “A Little Chaos” marks Alan Rickman’s second film as director; he also stars in the movie as Louis Xiv. His “Sense and Sensibility” love interest Kate Winslet stars as Sabine de Barra, a widow who falls for a fellow landscaper while they’re working on the King’s garden. At a recent public screening of the film, Rickman revealed several fun facts about himself and the making of the film.
Harry Potter put a hold on his film directing career.
Rickman made his movie directorial debut with “The Winter Guest,” starring Emma Thompson. But that was in 1997; why has it taken him so long to get back behind the camera? “Harry Potter got in the way,” said Rickman. “When I said yes to doing that in, I think 2000, there were only three books and I didn’t know if I’d be in the fourth.

Steve Jobs was one of the most influential men of the 20th and 21st centuries. A driving force in the personal computer and smartphone revolutions, his vision and commitment to bold new ideas changed the daily lives of billions of people. And while there have already been a number of movies about the man behind the iPhone, none have carried quite as much prestige as this fall's Steve Jobs. The new movie is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), written by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The Social Network), and stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus), and now we've got a new look at it thanks to the first full-length trailer below.

The world’s fascination with the man behind one of the most well-known companies in history is showing no signs of letting up.
Director Danny Boyle’s latest is a biopic of the late great Steve Jobs, going behind the glamour and prestige of Apple’s public image to provide a look at the storied beginnings of the tech giant. Michael Fassbender plays the titular character in Steve Jobs, transforming physically to represent the tech mogul throughout the decades.
Boyle’s Steve Jobs differs from other Jobs biopics (such as 2013’s Jobs) through the way it constructs the narrative of Steve Jobs’ life: this film looks at Jobs and his life during three pivotal product launches in Apple’s history. Running a revolutionary tech company takes its toll, and ultimately ends up affecting his family life and professional relations.

Summer may be the time for big blockbuster films, but it’s also the time for movie trailers for films being released in the upcoming Oscar season. Danny Boyle’s biopic Steve Jobs finally has an official trailer after its first teaser was released in May. With Boyle at the helm and a script by Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs is definitely one of the most anticipated films coming out this fall. Here’s the synopsis:
His passion and ingenuity have been the driving force behind the digital age. However his drive to revolutionize technology was sacrificial. Ultimately it affected his family life and possibly his health. In this revealing film we explore the trials and triumphs of a modern day genius, the late CEO of Apple inc. Steven Paul Jobs.

Did you know that Steve Jobs was a difficult, dramatic marketing genius who refused to acknowledge his daughter for a good chunk of her life? That's the main takeaway from the full trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" which you can view at the top of this post. Granted, it's just a preview, but Aaron Sorkin's screenplay doesn't seem to depict the Apple co-founder in the best light. This new depiction of Jobs' life appears to focus on his early days when Apple initially made a splash, his dramatic departure in the mid '80s and his return in the mid '90s which began a turnaround which completely revolutionized how the world communicates. Oh, and that Jobs had quite an ego. Michael Fassbender, who clearly is a best actor contender because of the role itself, doesn't necessarily resemble Jobs (earlier choice Christian Bale was likely more right »

"Musicians play their instruments – I play the orchestra." That key line, from the new trailer for upcoming biopic Steve Jobs, is delivered by Michael Fassbender, as the enigmatic Apple mogul defends his position against co-founder Steve Wozniak.
"What do you do?" Wozniak (Seth Rogen) asks his business partner. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do? »
The first full-length trailer for the biopic of the Apple co-founder written by Aaron Sorkin has been released, with Fassbender, Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen all popping up in the Danny Boyle-directed movie
“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome...” booms the announcer at the end of the trailer: then up pops the words, as if typed into a computer, “steve jobs”.
It’s a suitable sign-off line for a film that looks to be about performance as much as anything else: scriptwriter Aaron Sorkin has said it will revolve around three separate product launches at different points in Jobs’ career.

Everyone hates Steve Jobs in the first trailer for the new movie about the Apple co-founder.
“What do you do? You’re not an engineer. You’re not a designer. You can’t put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do?” asks Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak to Michael Fassbender’s Jobs.
“Musicians play their instruments. I play the orchestra,” Fassbender’s Jobs responds arrogantly. “You had three weeks; the universe was created in a third of that time,” he later tells a subordinate about resolving a problem.
Universal picked up the project in November, less than a week after Sony put the high-profile feature into turnaround. »

"We're not a pit crew at Daytona, this can't be fixed in seconds!" Universal has debuted a full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the innovator Steve Jobs. This doesn't exactly make him look like the nicest guy in the world, as the trailer seems to show quite a few extra moments through his long career, including very early on at Apple and an amusing tech failure with the original Os just before a conference. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Snook, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. I think this looks fantastic, really really excited to see it. Looks even better than I could have hoped. Enjoy! Here's the new full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, direct from Universal's YouTube: You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs here, »

The dark side of Steve Jobs is on full display in the first trailer for Universal’s upcoming biopic of the Apple CEO, which takes place backstage at a handful of the most important product launches of his career.
It’s undeniably exciting to see Steve Jobs finally making its way to theaters – the project was originally set up at Sony, with Scott Rudin producing and David Fincher directing, but that fell apart rather spectacularly and Sony unceremoniously dumped the movie, leaving Universal to swoop in. Now, thankfully, production has wrapped and the pic is well on its way to theaters.
Aaron Sorkin (The Newsroom) wrote the script and appears to have packed it with some absolutely stinging lines of dialogue, from the sounds of the new trailer. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) is at the helm here, returning to prestige fare after 2013’s silly caper Trance, and he’s »

Made up of three scenes that focus on three important Apple product launches, Trainspotting and Trance director Danny Boyle teams with scribe Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) for Steve Jobs, with Michael Fassbenders stepping into shoes of the titular technology pioneer, and the below trailer promises that we’re in for a hell of a ride. Fassbender is on top form as Jobs, as is an impressive supporting cast that includes Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, and Jeff Daniels. The trailer also shows that it won’t be glossing over the fact that as brilliant as he was, Jobs was also incredibly driven, and wasn’t afraid to rub people in his business, and personal life, the wrong way. Boyle has always impressed, and over the last few years he’s knocked it out of the park with each movie. I have the feeling much won’t change here. »
