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. »

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. »

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...

"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? »
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 has released a new Steve Jobs trailer, this one offering a much larger look at the presumed Oscar contender. In fact, it's my early year pick for Best Picture. Starring Michael Fassbender in the title role, the story will center on the founder of Apple, set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. Danny Boyle directs and Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) wrote the screenplay based on the biography "Steve Jobs," by Walter Isaacson. Along with Fassbender, the film co-stars Seth Rogen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Perla Haney-Jardine, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Sarah Snook. Steve Jobs releases in theaters on Oct. 9, watch the trailer below. sb id="1539929" height="360" width="640" »

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. »

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.

You may recall that Sony released a one minute Steve Jobs teaser trailer during […]

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

After successful collaborations with David Fincher on “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and “The Social Network,” Oscar-nominated actress Rooney Mara is in advanced negotiations to star in the director’s upcoming HBO series “Utopia,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Fincher will direct every episode of the first season of the one-hour drama, which has been written by “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn. “Utopia” is based on the hit British series that Dennis Kelly created and Kudos produced for Channel 4. Endemol Shine North America’s scripted division, Endemol Shine Studios, will produce the series with HBO. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.
“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”
“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.
Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Whilst David Fincher's "Videosyncrazy" project at HBO may have fallen apart midway through shooting the first season, his other series in the works at the premium cabler seems to be picking up steam.
The Wrap's Jeff Sneider reports that Rooney Mara, who worked with Fincher on both "The Social Network" and the U.S. version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," is reportedly in talks for a role in HBO's "Utopia," the remake of the cult British series of the same name.
Fincher is working with "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn to adapt the project for the U.S. market. The story follows a group of people who find themselves in possession of a manuscript for the sequel to a cult graphic novel called "The Utopia Experiments".
Said comic is rumoured to have predicted the worst disasters of the last century, and the manuscript suggests future disasters on the way. »
