Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution, to paint a portrait of the man at its epicenter. The story unfolds backstage at three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.
The story of Ray Kroc, a salesman who turned two brothers' innovative fast food eatery, McDonald's, into the biggest restaurant business in the world, with a combination of ambition, persistence, and ruthlessness.

Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business.
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.Written by
David Fincher was originally attached to direct. Sony dropped him after he demanded a $10 million salary and full creative control of the project. Fincher wanted Christian Bale to play the lead role. After his departure, Danny Boyle signed on to direct, and Leonardo DiCaprio was approached about the title role. DiCaprio passed on the project, and it was offered to Christian Bale instead. Bale also declined, feeling he was not right for the part. See more »

I can't put it more simply than this: We need to put our resources into updating the Apple II.
By taking resources from the Mac.
It's failing. That's a fact.
There is no evidence...
I'm the evidence! I'm the world's leading expert on the Mac, John! What's your resume?
You're issuing contradictory instructions, you're insubordinate, you make people miserable, our top engineers are fleeing to Sun, Dell, HP, Wall Street doesn't know who's driving the bus, we've lost hundreds of ...

Constantly Bashes Steve Jobs with a terrible unrealistic plot
This entire movie bashes Steve Jobs throughout and makes it look like he is entirely useless to Apple (so why did they almost go out of business when they fired him?). It's focus on his daughter is loose and doesn't make much sense, his talks with the other characters are just two people bashing each other throughout. If you want to see people argue for 2 hours and Steve Jobs be a d!ck to everyone this is your movie. If you care about any factuality (these talks never happened, it's all made up) then this is the wrong movie to see. Thank you, Hollywood, for another sh*tty Steve Jobs movie. It makes sense this movie is doing so badly because it's just nonfactual and a terrible movie.
