“Whenever you do something new, you learn something about yourself,” says the protagonist of Polish lenser-turned-helmer Bartek Prokopowicz’s gutsy debut feature, “Chemo,” promising viewers a world of self-discovery in the process: No one’s ever seen a terminal-disease meller quite like this one, after all. Careering recklessly in form and tone from magical-realist romantic comedy to abrasive domestic drama to four-handkerchief weeper, this story of a young couple trying to start a family in the shadow of a cancer diagnosis inevitably falters in a couple of its guises, but lands the crucial emotional body blow thanks to its consistent intensity of feeling — no surprise, given the pic is inspired by Prokopowicz’s late wife’s own battle with the Big C. Idiosyncratic but not uncommercial, this HBO Europe co-production could travel considerably within the Continent.
While “Chemo” isn’t a direct memoir, Katarzyna Sarnowska’s script draws heavily from »

He said he "felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated", and admitted that it made him "almost cry remembering it".
Wozniak concedes that "accuracy is second to entertainment in a movie like this", but pointed out that Rogen's portrayal misses the mark in some respects.
"I don't talk that way," he said in reference to a scene in the trailer where Rogen's Wozniak accuses Jobs of taking credit for his co-worker's creations. "I never made comments to the effect that I had credit taken from me."
However, he went on »

This week marks the 30th Anniversary of Back to the Future, which seems like a perfect time to wonder if Hollywood has any plans on remaking it. Ask Robert Zemeckis, and the answer is a flat out “no”. We groan about remakes, but your childhood isn’t sacred, and there’s a fine line between a remake that’s worth your time and attention and one that’s just out for your money. We also dig into PTA’s weird new job writing Robert Downey Jr.’s Pinocchio script, as well as look at some anticipated fall trailers.

The world can, and has, discussed the accuracy of the Steve Jobs trailer at length. But most of us only knew Jobs from his public appearances. Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak can compare Danny Boyle‘s upcoming biopic to the Jobs he knew in real life. So how does Wozniak think Steve Jobs measures up to the real Steve […]

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has revealed he feels torn about the new trailer for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs, in which Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen star as a tyrannical take on the late tech guru and a fiercely critical version of Wozniak himself.
“What do you do? You’re not an engineer,” says the screen Wozniak. “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?”

Last seen as the source of much squabbling in the Sony hacks, here is the first official look at Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs, starring Michael Fassbender. Sorkin, who scripted, seems to be giving the late entrepreneur a similar treatment to his handling of Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, painting Jobs as a ruthless CEO. Steve Wozniak, who is portrayed by Seth Rogen in the film, has already weighed in, claiming “[he feels] a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated.” It opens October 9. »

“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 »

As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.
Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.
That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.
We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.
As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.
Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »

Read More: Sony Leaks Reveal Bickering Over 'Jobs,' 'Cleopatra'; Clooney Predicted Hack Macheads around America adjusted their horn-rimmed glasses and inched closer to their computer screens yesterday as the 'Steve Jobs' trailer finally hit the web. Penned by Aaron Sorkin, and with David Fincher long attached to direct, it seemed that the only thing separating this cybermensch biopic from 'The Social Network' was the absence of Jesse Eisenberg's trademark sneer. It wasn't until December's infamous Sony leaks, however, that we learned Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin "thought differently" to such an extent that the project was almost lost forever. Now directed by Danny Boyle, 'Steve Jobs' still looks like it's got a shot to be great (you can't find a much better replacement for Bale than Fassbender -- ditto for Fincher and Boyle) but it won't be as good as 'The Social Network. »

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. Steve Jobs also stars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. It hits theaters on October 9, 2015...

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 »
