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? »
20th Century Fox has released a new preview for the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut. The preview shows us some of the new footage that the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut has to offer, along with an introduction from director Bryan Singer, who explains that this is more than just an extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, but rather an alternate version of the film. The preview offers some of the 17 minutes of new footage that fans will get to see, which wasn't included in the theatrical cut.
With a never-before-seen, alternate cut of the film-plus nearly 90 minutes of all-new, immersive special features, the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut takes you deeper into the X-Men universe than ever before. Rogue makes her return as the all-star characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with »
Talk about a juicy Apple. The new trailer for Steve Jobs, the Danny Boyle-directed film starring Michael Fassbender as the late computer giant co-founder, if full of drama. "What do you do?" Jobs' partner Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogan) says at the opening of the almost three-minute clip. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. "I built the circuit board," he continues. "The graphical interface was stolen. So how come ten times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius—what do you do?" Jobs calmly explains, "Musicians play their instruments. I play the »
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. »

We've hit the midway point of 2015 so it's time to start taking the 2016 Oscar race a little more seriously. Cannes is behind us and coming up are the Toronto and Venice Film Festival announcements at which point we'll see just what kind of strategies the studios will be taking with their upcoming Oscar contenders. Over the last month or so I've been tweaking my Best Picture predictions in the background, adding a movie here and there, shuffling a few around as I see fit to the point I am now at 51 contenders. Yeah, such is the price you pay when you start predicting this early. However, this year I'm going to set out to keep track of my own personal Oscar ballot as we go through the year, offering up a list of the top five films I believe should be nominated for Best Picture in hopes of maybe keeping »

Read More: SXSW Review: Alex Gibney Doesn't Pander to Steve Jobs in His Unsparing New Doc Following his acclaimed documentaries "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" and "Sinatra," Alex Gibney will achieve a rare non-fiction hat trick this September when Magnolia Pictures releases "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine." A critical exploration of the iconic Apple CEO and co-founder, Gibney's latest project incorporates interviews with some of Jobs' closest partners and an extremely relatable hook -- why was the man so inexplicably mourned after his death? -- to create a portrait that is equally scathing and praising. For this reason, one can only hope Danny Boyle's upcoming biographical drama, "Steve Jobs," starring Michael Fassbender in the title role, examines the subject with the same remarkable and censorious lens as Gibney. After an early screening of the documentary last week, Gibney joined select press to reminisce on. »

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 [...] »

"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, »

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 »

"I didn't want to move or act like a rich man. I wanted to dance in a pair of jeans. I wanted to dance like the man in the streets." – Gene Kelly
It's hard to imagine — let alone remember — living in a world where it wasn't a universally acknowledged truth that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. Today, that particular chapter of his origin story seems as inextricable from the 35-year-old actor's story as Ginger Rogers is from Fred Astaire's career, or Scientology is from that of Tom Cruise, »
