“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 »

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. »

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.

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...

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.

We've poked plenty of fun at Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic over the years, but judging from this first trailer, it actually seems like it might be pretty good. Sorkin looks to be back in Good Sorkin mode; Seth Rogen is gunning for those Best Supporting noms; and, accent issues aside, Michael Fassbender — the third choice for the role, after Leo DiCaprio and Christian Bale dropped out — makes a fine Steve Jobs. Cast a Jobs you love, and you'll never work a day in your life. »

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. »

Last month saw the release of Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs teaser trailer, which did exactly that. The Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) scripted film is said to be set during the backstage of three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac. This more thorough theatrical trailer suprisingly doesn't feel that self-contained, and after a minute, you'll most... Read More »

Step aside, Mark Zuckerberg! Aaron Sorkin’s latest tech-savvy project is dedicated to the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. In the highly anticipated biopic, Steve Jobs, Michael Fassbender underwent an impressive transformation into the computer tycoon at all stages of his life. In addition to the German-born actor’s physical transformation, Sorkin’s tale shows the dark side to the company’s leader (much like his 2010 hit, The Social Network, did with the creation of Facebook). The trailer shows Seth Rogen, as co-founder Steve Wozniak, slamming Jobs for his lack of [...] »

Universal Pictures’ Steve Jobs is based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography of the iconic Apple founder. But the first trailer for the biopic that just dropped shows that Michael Fassbender is all-in on Aaron Sorkin’s script, about the sometimes flawed man that was one of the architects of the digital revolution. The first thought when watching Fassbender storming through these first-look scenes: Now we see why the filmmakers originally reached out to Christian… »
“Steve Jobs” is a conductor in the first full-length trailer for the Universal biopic starring Michael Fassbender as the eponymous Apple co-founder. Seth Rogen plays fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who questions Jobs’ “genius” reputation in the drama written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle. “What do you do?” Rogen’s Wozniak asks. “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, ten times in a day I read Steve Jobs is a genius?” Also »

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 »
