Steve Jobs Movie

"We're not a pit crew at Daytona, this can't be fixed in seconds!" Universal has debuted a full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the innovator Steve Jobs. This doesn't exactly make him look like the nicest guy in the world, as the trailer seems to show quite a few extra moments through his long career, including very early on at Apple and an amusing tech failure with the original OS just before a conference. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Snook, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. I think this looks fantastic, really really excited to see it. Looks even better than I could have hoped. Enjoy!

Here's the new full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, direct from Universal's YouTube:

You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs here, if you're interested.

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 will release Steve Jobs starting October 9th this fall.

I really dont know. Rogen sounds terrible. Like the typical whiny Seth Rogen. But I like Boyle's work and Sorkin is pretty brilliant as well. I suppose will have to check it out...

Fassbender captures Steve's essence without imitating or trying to impersonate. At least, that's what I'm seeing in this short trailer. I always thought it was important to capture how Jobs was not a high level programmer or engineer. He was an idea guy. Seems like the film really dives into that. That interests me more than any other part of the film.

Exactly right. People expect caricature in biopics (for some reason). In real life most of these "great" people were just regular dudes. Whenever we saw them in public, they played a persona. Fassbender's portrayal is HIS vision (well, and Boyle's).

DAVIDPD on Jul 1, 2015


Fassbender isn't really that much of a convincing Steve Jobs, he looks miles apart from him. Fassbender also seems to be struggling to hide his usual accent. They could have picked a better suited actor for the role.

Jordan Odinson on Jul 1, 2015


Don't take this as personal criticism of you Jordan, but why do people always think that playing the role of a historically real person must be synonymous with looking like that person? The idea of finding a look-a-like who can also act is slim.

Quanah on Jul 1, 2015


It is? Then how did they do it two years ago?

txJM on Jul 1, 2015


To which are you referring?

Quanah on Jul 1, 2015


You didn't say "act well". You said "act". And he looks enough like Steve Jobs that they put his face on two movie posters. Unlike Fassbender.

txJM on Jul 1, 2015


You're right. I did say "act" and not "act well." And to be even clearer, I'm saying Ashton Kutcher can't all... To put someone's face on a poster does not constitute they look like the person they are playing. Take Jessie Eisenberg on the Social Network poster. He looks nothing like Mark Zuckerberg.

Quanah on Jul 1, 2015


I look forward to your directorial debut. Will you also be acting in it?

txJM on Jul 3, 2015


To be completely frank with you, sir or ma'am, I took my first film class and cut my first 2 minute short at age 8, I attended 1 year at the Vancouver film school, worked as an intern at the Fox Studios in Vancouver for 21 Jump Street and MacGuyver, took a few film theory classes from Oscar Nominated Director Stanley Kramer at Bellevue Community College, completed 2 acting workshops in Seattle, and had at one time a modestly successful YouTube channel under the name "adifferentview". My interest in film and acting isn't just in passing. Although I never made it any further than that, and still consider my opinions subjective, I think your smart-ass comments and opinions still deserve to be challenged on this film blog when you're liking a movie poster image to looking like a historical figure. It's such a poor argument I should have taken the high road and not commented due to its poor philosophical and sophomoric status. Anyone could have identified what a simpleton statement you made without my rebuttal. You are a ninnyhammer. Good luck. Moving on.

Quanah on Jul 3, 2015


For all the emphasis you place on a single facet of a complex art, I'm not surprised that you haven't made your mark in film. "Moving on", indeed. Flaking out seems to be your modus operandi in the face of failure.

txJM on Jul 3, 2015


Well if you call Ashton Kutcher's performance "complex art", then I'm certain your opinion is about as valuable as a sewage pipe. Being a tiresome bore seems to be your exclusive trait, which certainly explains your taste in films.

Quanah on Jul 3, 2015


I haven't said anything about Kutcher's performance, and you don't know anything about what films I like or don't like. But, you know...betas gonna beta.

txJM on Jul 3, 2015


That is true however, I feel if the entire movie is about that person it needs to have some close resemblance to the real person. Neither his look, his voice or his body language are anything close to the real jobs. Just my opinion...

Sascha Dikiciyan on Jul 1, 2015


I get you. I have never seen that done with consistency in biopic films. And when there have been times that the actor has attempted to impersonate, they seem to have been ridiculed for it. These things are ultimately hard to judge from a 2 1/2 minute trailer. I guess we will all see.

Quanah on Jul 1, 2015


Yeah I definitely agree - especially with someone like Steve Jobs, whose mannerisms and likeness are so well known.

Jennifer M. on Sep 11, 2015


True...they could cast a black man as Lincoln and that would be fine....oh're an idiot

Santawanker on Jul 1, 2015


Because somehow from what I wrote you inferred I meant different race? And I'm the idiot? Interesting theory. Any other pearls of wisdom and insight within that melon of a head of yours, or have you exhausted your entire intellect for the year? Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Quanah on Jul 1, 2015


Hahahaha, very nice reply ...

shiboleth on Jul 1, 2015


Dude, I could not stop laughing. Nicely played.

Whatever on Aug 20, 2015


A C T I N G ! ! ~

DAVIDPD on Jul 1, 2015


Agreed. I believed Ashton Kutcher in the role much more. I'm sure this guy is a fine actor, but he's not Steve Jobs.

Jennifer M. on Sep 11, 2015


It scares me to think that this movie will make me miss Ashton Kutcher

Héctor Pérez Tovar on Jul 1, 2015


i wanna see this

Quynh Truong on Jul 1, 2015


Looks stellar to me! Danny Boyle + Sorkin + Fassbender is like a match made in heaven. I hope the movie delivers

Ricardo_PT on Jul 1, 2015


Steve Jobs was the antichrist....good riddance

Santawanker on Jul 1, 2015


after watching the trailer I am convinced that M. Fassbinder is better doing his job than Steve Jobs was doing his own...

shiboleth on Jul 1, 2015


Didn't we just have a steve jobs film? Looks mediocre and predictable and I can see Fassbender is trying to make it more interesting. Also did they shoot the film at the wrong shutter speed, the noise in some of those shots is terrible.

Mr Chatterbox on Jul 1, 2015


I think the shots with noise represent older parts of that story, and sharper ones the most recent ones.

PauloGabrielAntunes on Jul 2, 2015


I remember thinking that iMac was the coolest fucking thing ever when I was a kid. This looks fabulous.

DAVIDPD on Jul 1, 2015


This trailer gives me such the vibe of "The Social Network". Sorkin really shines through in his writing.
