Michael Fassbender Plays the Orchestra in Steve Jobs

21 hours ago | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

No, he’s not actually an orchestra conductor, that’s just the metaphor Michael Fassbender’s Jobs uses to explain what he does at Apple. This is the new trailer for biographical drama Steve Jobs. Good trailer and I’ll say this again, I own or have owned exactly zero Apple products, yet I find Steve Jobs fascinating, so […]

Steve Wozniak on Steve Jobs movie: 'Accuracy second to entertainment'

3 July 2015 12:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tech pioneer says he doesn’t recognise himself in Seth Rogen’s performance, but admits parts of the trailer for Danny Boyle’s Apple drama made him cry

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?”

Snowtown duo reunites for historical epic

2 July 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Snowtown director Justin Kurzel and screenwriter Shaun Grant are collaborating on an Australian bushranger feature.

Grant is writing True History of the Kelly Gang, adapted from the Peter Carey novel, a co-production between Porchlight.s Liz Watts and the UK's Daybreak Pictures.

The novel is seen through Kelly.s eyes, scribbling his narrative on scraps of paper in semi-literate but descriptive prose as he fled from the police.

To his pursuers, Kelly was a monstrous criminal, a thief and a murderer. To many ordinary Australians, the bushranger was a hero, defying the authority of the English to control their lives.

Joe Penhall was listed as the writer when the project received development funding from Screen Australia.

Heath Ledger played the bushranger in Gregor Jordan's Ned Kelly in 2003 and Mick Jagger starred in Tony Richardson's Ned Kelly in 1970. The first screen version was The Story of the Kelly Gang in »

Trailer Watch: Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs

2 July 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

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. »

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 »

Oscars: Biopics, Diversity Dearth Shape Midyear Race

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

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.

Michael Fassbender looks nothing like Steve Jobs: 7 actors who don't resemble real-life counterparts

2 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

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.

1. Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

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 »

So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

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.
