First look at Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs

19 May 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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.

Based on Walter Isaacson's book with a script by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), the first teaser for the film gives us barely a glimpse at the titular Jobs as we instead get »

New 'Steve Jobs' Trailer Already Has People Complaining and Comparing

18 May 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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? »

First ‘Steve Jobs’ Teaser Trailer

17 May 2015 9:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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. »

Steve Jobs Trailer: See Michael Fassbender as the Late Apple Founder

17 May 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

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 »

From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Josh Gad: I Made "A Couple Thousand" on Frozen

1 April 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Ice cold! Josh Gad may have given Frozen fans around the world the gift of Olaf, but he claims that he got little love from Disney or his daughter Ava for his contribution to the frosty flick. Gad, 34, opened up on the Late Show on Tuesday, March 31, chatting with host David Letterman about voicing the snowman Olaf. "I was a part of Frozen... a big part of Frozen, I played Olaf," the Jobs actor began. "It was a blast and they really let me define it... [...] »

StreamFix: Must-watch 'Daily Show' correspondent movies on Netflix now

30 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thanks to the news of Trevor Noah taking over Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" desk, we remembered something: Wow, "Daily Show" alums have basically taken over the world. If they're not landing primetime sitcom gigs, they're scoring Oscar nominations and populating romcoms. To celebrate Noah's new post, let's take a look at five Netflix picks starring the friends, colleagues, and cronies of Jon Stewart. Watch 'em now.  "Trevor Noah: African American" If you haven't been introduced to your new "Daily Show" host's brand of observational humor yet, check out his comedy special where he discusses his home country of South Africa and why racial relations there, even during the age of apartheid, are/were less complicated than in the U.S. His bit about Oprah Winfrey's leadership academy is particularly inspired. And a little unsettling! "Bruce Almighty" Oscar nominee Steve Carell wasn't always scarring you with his fake "Foxcatcher" nose and deathly "Foxcatcher" stare. »

SXSW: Alex Gibney on His Controversial Steve Jobs Documentary

13 March 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After causing a stir at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year with his Scientology exposé “Going Clear,” director Alex Gibney arrives at SXSW with another documentary — about the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Gibney says the film, “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine,” will be just as controversial. He spent nearly three years on the project, which was financed by CNN Films, and interviewed roughly 50 people who knew Jobs — even if Apple Inc. didn’t participate. In advance of the SXSW premiere on Saturday afternoon, Gibney spoke to Variety about his new film and explained why Ashton Kutcher didn’t succeed in playing the icon in the 2013 biopic.

What brought you to Jobs?

After the Walter Isaacson book and so many other films, I didn’t really want to do a paint-by-the-numbers bio. I was interested in his values, the idea that when he died, there was »

Josh Gad to play chubby sidekick La Fou in live-action Beauty and the Beast

13 March 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Josh Gad has made a pretty good career out of being the chubby sidekick. From The Rocker to Love And Other Drugs to the more recent Jobs and The Wedding Ringer, Gad has proven to be adept at the hijinks as well as musical stylings. Coming to fame in the Broadway musical Book Of Mormon, Gad took part in the phenomenon that was Frozen where he voiced the somewhat chubby snowman Olaf. Now, Gad is about to voice another chubby sidekick for another Disney musical, this time a live-action one. »

‘American Sniper’ Looks to Steamroll ‘Project Almanac,’ ‘Black or White’ at Super Bowl Box Office

28 January 2015 1:06 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With the Super Bowl kicking off Sunday, it seems somehow appropriate that we’re looking at another “American Sniper” blowout at the box office this weekend.

The NFL’s biggest game has seen more than its share of lopsided contests over the years, and if Las Vegas set odds on the movies, the breakout hit from Warner Bros. would be a 35-point favorite.

'Steve Jobs' Biopic Begins Shooting in His Childhood Home

20 January 2015 10:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Already used in the 2013 biopic Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher, the crew of Universal Pictures' new Steve Jobs biopic have returned to 2066 Crist Drive to begin shooting their own take on the Apple co-founder's life. The iconic location has been declared a landmark, and resides in Los Altos. It is the childhood home of Steve Jobs and the birthplace of Apple.

CBS San Francisco has video of the production as it gets underway, shooting at this real location where Jobs, played by Michael Fassbender, and Steve Wozniak, played by Seth Rogen, built their very first Apple computer. Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents in the 7th grade and lived there through high school. It was in the attached garage, which we see here redecorated with props from that time period, where the first 50 Apple 1 computers were constructed in 1976.

Zooey Deschanel’s Baby Will Dethrone North West as Coolest Celebrity Offspring

13 January 2015 10:25 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

People reports that Zooey Deschanel is expecting her first child with her producer boyfriend of six months, Jacob Pechenik. North West may have won 2014, but it’s a new year filled with new celebrity kids. And the future child of the New Girl star and this Hollywood mega-producer is coming for her throne.

We know that the baby will get mommy’s awesome Dgaf attitude and daddy’s excellent taste, but their kid will also give superstar offspring like North a run for their money. Here’s why:

1. Mom and dad are too cool to care.

We’ve seen Deschanel go makeup-free on Instagram, while Pechenik isn’t even on social media — which means he probably gives zero fucks about getting approval from strangers. Their baby will likely grow up in a judgement-free zone where weirdness is embraced. Meanwhile, North already has her own stylist and can’t leave the »
