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.

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. »
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, »

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.)

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.

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? »

Universal has released a teaser trailer for Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder, and in my opinion this is a great first look at the upcoming film. I've never been a Jobs/Apple worshiper like some, but I'm interested in seeing the biopic because of the talent involved behind and in front of the camera. Danny Boyle directed the movie from a script by Aaron Sorkin (based on the Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs) and besides Fassbender, the »

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. »
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. »

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. »

The first teaser for the Danny Boyle-directed movie has just landed, featuring Fassbender in the titular role and co-starring Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Michael Stuhlbarg.
The movie focuses on the backstage action of three iconic product launches and culminates in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.
Daniels has been cast as ex-Apple CEO John Sculley, while Winslet will play Jobs's early collaborator Joanna Hoffman.
There was a while there where it looked like the new film about Steve Jobs might not actually happen, between all the casting changes and a studio swap. But Danny’s Boyle’s latest has managed to make it through, with the first teaser launching to prove it. Take a look…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.We only see glimpses of the main cast in this early look at the film, but Michael Fassbender plays Jobs with all the commitment to black turtlenecks and driven attitude you could want, with Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, his former partner and one of the co-founders of the company, »
Two years after Ashton Kutcher's Jobs was released, a trailer for Steve Jobs, the next film about the late Apple founder, has been unveiled. This time, Michael Fassbender is playing the tech legend. There isn't a ton of footage in this first teaser, but we do get to see Fassbender as Jobs. He basically looks like Michael Fassbender, just with glasses and a black turtleneck. So much for an epic transformation. We also get glimpses of costars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels. I'm curious to see more of the film, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, which will follow Jobs through various stages of his career. The movie will be released on Oct. 9. Stay tuned for a full trailer, and while you're watching the teaser, below, try to picture Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, or any of the other actors who were rumored for the »
