First look at Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs

19 May 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) is giving us our first look at Michael Fassbender as iconic entrepreneur and Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a new look at the man behind the ubiquitous Apple revolution.

This isn’t your typical chronological biopic on the man behind the iGeneration, and hopefully by now, we’ve all forgotten about that other Steve Jobs movie with Ashton Kutcher. In Steve Jobs, the action is set backstage at three of the brand’s iconic product launches: the Mac in 1984, the NeXT in 1997, and the iPod in 2001.  The film will chart an already successful Jobs through a career low and exile from Apple, before he returns to unveil the revolutionary iPod.

Based on Walter Isaacson's book with a script by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), the first teaser for the film gives us barely a glimpse at the titular Jobs as we instead get »

Watch: First Trailer For 'The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' Brings The Heat

19 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Underestimated by many including us, and kept going by firm fanbase, "The Maze Runner" is a Ya franchise survivor in a sea of also rans. And it's a feat made more remarkable given there are really no big names in the cast — certainly none on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (to name a few) in "The Hunger Games" series or Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more in the "Divergent" flicks. But yet, "The Maze Runner" pulled in a healthy $340 million worldwide last fall on a budget of $34 million. It's easy math, the numbers are good, and so comes "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials."  “The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of »

See Michael Fassbender Invent the Future in ‘Steve Jobs’

18 May 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar pundits, start your engines! The upcoming biographical drama “Steve Jobs,” based on the famed founder of Apple Inc., is helmed by award-winning director Danny Boyle and writer Aaron Sorkin. Going behind the scenes of three iconic product launches in the '90s, culminating in the unveiling of the iMac, the film digs deep in portraying the man who, according to a line in the trailer, engineered one of the “two most significant events of the 20th century.” The film will be released Oct. 9, four days after the anniversary of its subject’s death. Although it is too early to tell how “Steve Jobs” will fare in next season’s awards race, it is at the very least sure to draw attention to its star Michael Fassbender, who brings his signature charisma to the man who invented the future. Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen also star. Check out the trailer below. »

Watch: Michael Fassbender Unveils Himself as 'Steve Jobs' in Slick, Pulsating Debut Trailer

18 May 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Why Michael Fassbender Thinks It's Important to Work With First-Time Filmmakers Despite a turbulent ride to production, the first trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" has us pretty excited. Michael Fassbender stars as the late Apple CEO and tech mastermind in what promises to be his definitive cinematic treatment. Envisioning a screenplay from "The Social Network" Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, Boyle's film will explore the personal tradeoffs that came with Jobs' desire to revolutionize technology, and will balance his successes and failures in a sweeping account of his incredible life story. The debut trailer (posted above) neglects to show us much footage, but it's all the better for it. As the screen narrows in on Jobs, with his back to us as he looks towards an empty theater, the music quickens and the condemning voices of those closest to him -- played by the likes of Kate Winslet, »

Watch: First 'Steve Jobs' Teaser Stars Fassbender, Winslet, Rogen and Daniels

18 May 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Universal shared a first glimpse of Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" during last night's series finale of "Mad Men." Watch the teaser below. Written by Aaron Sorkin, the long-gestating film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Apple mogul, alongside Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels. Sorkin has apparently written a 181-page, three-act screenplay that spans 16 years. The film passed from director to director, and studio to studio, like a hot potato before finally landing at Universal. "Steve Jobs" launches in theaters October 9. (Conspiracy alert: Could "Steve Jobs" open the New York Film Festival? In the "Mad Men" finale, Peggy was seen with the second annual poster hanging on her wall, and it got me thinking this could happen. This year, Nyff runs September 25 to October 11.)

Steve Jobs Trailer: First Look of Michael Fassbender as Late Apple Co-Founder—Watch Now!

18 May 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's here! Universal Pictures' Steve Jobs biopic had quite the casting shuffle in its early stages, but it looks like Michael Fassbender was the perfect choice to portray Apple's late co-founder on the big screen. Viewers got an official first look of Fassbender in character Sunday in the first Steve Jobs trailer. The clip also provides a brief glimpse of Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh, Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. Voiceovers provide the narrative for most of this preview. At one point, Wozniak (voiced by Rosen) says: "You can't write code. You are not an engineer. What do you »

New Trailer Delivers First Look At Highly Anticipated Steve Jobs

18 May 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trailers are problematic things. Reveal too much, and you put the audience off. Reveal too little, and you fail to grab their interest. The balance is particularly difficult to strike when the film in question is a biographical drama, and one which lacks explosions, car chases and the like. This is why it is so notable when a trailer arrives for such a film, and is perfect – like this one, for Steve Jobs.

Based on the book Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin has crafted a screenplay that dramatises the rise of the man that shaped the digital age with nothing more than his passion, ambition and vision. It charts both his professional and personal life, and details the effect that his career had on his relationships with those around him, as well as on himself, using a three-event narrative structure.

New 'Steve Jobs' Trailer Already Has People Complaining and Comparing

18 May 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Another Steve Jobs movie? Already? That seems to be the main knee-jerk reaction to the first "Steve Jobs" trailer, which was released May 17 during the big "Mad Men" finale. The Ashton Kutcher movie "Jobs" came out in 2013 and pretty much bombed. This new "Steve Jobs" movie stars Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, with a high-profile team including director Danny Boyle and writer Aaron Sorkin. It looks like classic Oscar bait, and some fans seem to think that's why it exists, while others think it could be a palate-cleanser after the failure of "Jobs."

The new trailer makes Jobs seem like a rock star, focusing on his back facing an empty theater -- then an adoring audience -- and hides that Fassbender is even playing the role until the final shots.

Here are some early reactions: "So, was Ashton Kutcher's version a 2 hr long trailer 'til they got a stronger cast? »

17 May 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Steve Jobs, Danny Boyle’s upcoming biopic about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, so far has existed as a theoretical counterpoint to the similar film starring Ashton Kutcher from 2013. That changes today, with the first trailer for what is sure to be a much classier look at one of the most influential and controversial figures of the computing revolution.

Steve Jobs: first trailer and image

17 May 2015 10:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Fassbender is Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's upcoming biopic. Get your first look at him in the film here...

It took a fair while to get off the ground, and at the point when director David Fincher dropped out, it looked like the project may be in trouble. However, the biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is happening, and is set to arrive later this year.

Michael Fassbender ultimately won the role of Jobs, and Danny Boyle is directing. Aaron Sorkin has penned the screenplay, and the supporting cast includes Cate Blanchett, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels.

The first trailer and official image from the film have now arrived too, and so let's do them in reverse order. Here's the image...

And here's the first trailer for the film.

Steve Jobs (as the film is now called) is set for release in UK cinemas on November 13th. »

First ‘Steve Jobs’ Teaser Trailer

17 May 2015 9:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Two years ago we suffered through Joshua Michael Stern’s Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher. Now we gte to look to see a higher pedigree version in the upcoming Steve Jobs. Once again it will be a biopic of the late great innovator of Apple and re-definer of the letter ‘i’, only this time you can replace Kutcher with Michael Fassbender, Stern with Danny Boyle, and scriptwriter Matt Whiteley with Aaron Sorkin. It already sounds unfair on the former effort.

This teaser trailer is exactly that. It doesn’t show us much, except a build up to Jobs taking the stage at one of his many rock god like appearances while memorable voice overs are played across the top. This certainly looks and sounds as though it will be the Steve Jobs film to remember.

Steve Jobs is released on 9th October in the Us and 15th November in the UK. »

The deification of 'Steve Jobs' begins with first look teaser trailer

17 May 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It seems pretty obvious given what's on paper that, if you're interested in the annual film awards derby at year's end, you should be keeping a pretty close eye on "Steve Jobs." Produced by Oscar winners Scott Rudin ("No Country Old Men") and Christian Colson ("Slumdog Millionaire") along with nominee Mark Gordon ("Saving Private Ryan"), written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin ("The Social Network"), directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") starring Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender ("12 Years a Slave") and winner Kate Winslet ("The Reader") — yeah, this is that "sight unseen" territory. And just like that, everyone forgot about that Ashton Kutcher movie. Of course, it goes without saying, buyer beware on that kind of thing. Every year something that looks like a perfect fit on paper ends up falling to the wayside. Each of those names have seen it happen, in fact, as well as the studio distributing the film: Universal Pictures. »
