While we have known about the Steve Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher as Jobs we had only seen photos of him. Now we get to see him walking and talking.
Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) is raving about the operating system that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) created. While Jobs is certain that this will become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption, Wozniak needs convincing
The film follows Steve Jobs’ life from 1971 (the year he met Steve Wozniak) up to 2001 (the year the iPod was released). The film is directed by Joshua Michael Stern.
jOBS also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
The film is out on April 19, the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple.
Open Road Films, in partnership with Five Star Feature Films, will release JOBS – the highly anticipated film chronicling the story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century – nationwide on April 19, 2013. April 2013 marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Company. As previously announced, JOBS will premiere this Friday, January 25 as the closing night film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. JOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life.
The filmmakers strove for absolute authenticity in making the film, including shooting in the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc.
