Steve Wozniak on ‘Steve Jobs’ Trailer: ‘I Felt a Lot of the Real Jobs’

2 July 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has responded to the “Steve Jobs” trailer in which Seth Rogen plays him, and his response isn’t as negative as some might expect.

“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 »

Michael Fassbender is the face of technology in the new Steve Jobs trailer

1 July 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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.

Seth Rogen stars as Steve’s early-days partner Wozniak, and Kate Winslet »

1 July 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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 SorkinSteve 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.

The trailer showcases all of the main talent in the film, most notably of course Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs himself. »

Watch 'Steve Jobs' Battle for Domination in Thrilling Biopic Trailer

1 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"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? »

Watch: Michael Fassbender in ‘Steve Jobs’ Intense First Trailer

1 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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.

Danny Boyle is directing the film from Aaron Sorkin’s script — adapted from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography “Steve Jobs.”

Universal picked up the project in November, less than a week after Sony put the high-profile feature into turnaround. »

Must Watch: Full-Length Trailer for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Movie

1 July 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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, »

Steve Jobs Trailer Unmasks A Diabolical Visionary

1 July 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

Michael Fassbender Takes Centre Stage In New Steve Jobs Trailer

1 July 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

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. »

The Steve Jobs Trailer Takes a Shot at the Apple Founder's Personal Life

1 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Two years after Ashton Kutcher's Jobs was released, the full trailer for Steve Jobs, the next film about the late Apple founder, has been unveiled. This time, Michael Fassbender is playing the tech legend, and, well, he basically looks like Michael Fassbender, just with glasses and a black turtleneck. So much for an epic transformation. We get to see a lot of Jobs's personal family controversy, as well as costars Kate Winslet (oh, that '80s style!), Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. Though it's directed by Danny Boyle, between the subject matter and Aaron Sorkin's writing, it feels a lot like The Social Network. The movie will be released on Oct. 9. While you're watching the trailer below, try to picture Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, or any of the other actors who were rumored for the role before Fassbender finally took it.

New Steve Jobs Trailer Shows the Diabolical Terror Who Created the Future

1 July 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released a new Steve Jobs trailer for director Danny Boyle's upcoming drama.  Written by Aaron Sorkin, the film has only three scenes, each one the unveiling of a product Jobs created. This is definitely not the film I was expecting as it looks like this stretches far beyond three scenes, although it may just look that way because of how the trailer was cut.  But what really leaps out is Sorkin.  As was pointed out to me during this trailer, Sorkin is not only cribbing his own lines yet again (the one about creating the Earth is borrow The West Wing), but there are even points where Jobs kind of resembles Sorkin.  Nevertheless, this still looks like it could be an exhilarating ride even if Michael Fassbender can't completely shake his accent. Check out the new Steve Jobs trailer below. The film opens October 9th and also stars  Seth Rogen, »

Michael Fassbender has donned the black turtleneck in the latest trailer for Steve Jobs.

With snap-crackle dialogue from an Aaron Sorkin script and energetic direction from Danny Boyle, the movie looks set to enter the Oscar race when it hits cinemas later this year.

Fassbender, who took on the role of the Apple co-founder after Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio circled the part, will be joined in the cast by Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Michael Stuhlbarg.

The film focuses on the behind-the-scenes action ahead of three iconic Apple product launches: the Macintosh in 1984, NeXT in 1988 and the iMac in 1998.

Steve Jobs will arrive in Us cinemas on October 9 and November 13 in the UK.

Written by Aaron Sorkin, the long-gestating film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Apple mogul, alongside Kate Winslet (Macintosh marketing chief Joanna Hoffman), Seth Rogen (as Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak), Jeff Daniels (as former Apple CEO John Sculley) and Katherine Waterston (as the artist-mother of Jobs' first child).
