Earlier this year, we got a look at one of the sets for Steve Jobs, the film about the iconic technology innovator and co-founder of Apple Computers. Director Danny Boyle was using the real garage that Jobs created Apple in along with his right hand man Steve Wozniak, and it was made to look just as it did decades ago. However, with the exception of some spy photos from production on-location in California, we've yet to get a good look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. But now we have one glimpse of the actor in the role in the form of a vintage promotional poster that has him promoting Apple's NeXT line of computers.
This poster surfaced online, likely from another on-location set (originally found via The Playlist):
Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, "The West Wing"). Set backstage at three iconic product launches, beginning with the Mac in 1984, moving through the NeXT in 1997 and ending in 1997 with the unveiling of the iPod, the film aims to take audiences behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter, Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender). The film also stars Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterston and more. Universal Pictures releases the film on October 9th this fall.
