Watch: New Extended TV Spot for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Movie
"What you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you! You're a father…" Universal has debuted an extended 60-second TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the late technology innovator Steve Jobs. We've already seen two trailers for this already, but this new TV spot throws in some extra footage, including that line quoted at the start about how he's supposed to be a father (maybe they're focusing on that part of the story in the marketing more?). The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks outstanding.
Here's the new extended TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, direct from Universal's YouTube:
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 love Danny Boyle's movies, and this one might be great, but I'm just not that interested in Steve Jobs.

Wow, I couldn't give two craps about Steve Jobs. I got through 15 minutes of the Ashton Kutcher one and even with fair performances, I just couldn't care less about the entire concept.

Saw this on Monday at a test screening. While it does have that Hollywood drama added to the story, I felt that it was entertaining most of the way through. It was a bit slow in some parts mainly because of the movie mainly focusing on the relationship between Steve and his daughter. Very dialogue heavy but pretty well done.

Looks like a great character piece. I will watch for Sorkin's script and Fassbender's performance.

The tone of the movie reminds me a lot of The Social Network, but I guess that's to be expected since Sorkin wrote both. I think Fassbender looks the part, but there's something off with his voice. It just doesn't sound right. Sounds too forced. That's forgivable since he does have a English accent and is a great actor, but it still irks me. I think Rogen was completely miscast as Wozniak though. I'll still think of him the guy who tells dick and fart jokes when I watch it. I hope this is good, but the jury is still out on this one from what I've seen so far.

Id love to see seth rogen break away from the comedian typecast much like Jesse Eisenberg and Jonah Hill before. Its always a good experience when an actor can surprise you with a performance.

Cheers Steve for the selfies and the emptiness, the weak workstations that can't process the graphics any more because Apple concentrated on the middle class child's toy market. Typed from my iMac of course. Creating the future isn't always a good thing, but this looks fine enough.

Stop trolling idiot. Middle class toy market? You have not the slightest clue..

I'm just expressing a point of view, do you not think Apple has put more energy into creating a cult of blind consumerism where they can do no wrong? I say that as a 20 year Mac user, the machine I use does what it needs but a lot of people who'd use Macs for higher end motion graphics are leaving to get PC's. Have a listen to this Sascha, you might actually enjoy it if you're into movie titles, I love Danny Yount's work, it mentions the limits of modern Macs in the title making workflow. Apart from that it's quite inspiring. 🙂 https://soundcloud.com/the-collective-podcast/ep-113-danny-yount

Why would you say he's trolling? He (maybe a she) has a good point. Apple has abandoned the very people who made the company prosper in the early days. The power computer users. They have pretty much abandoned those users for iphone and ipad Moms. Middle class toy market sums it up perfectly. I still prefer to use Apple computers, but they have COMPLETELY lost their mojo.

I can't even LOOK at that frame of Fassbender without cringing. I don't know how anyone can stand another Steve Jobs movie. Good Lord, let him go already.

Sascha just called you a troll AND an idiot. Why would you bother spending one second typing to a REAL troll. Not worth the time of day.
Charles Knowlton on Aug 11, 2015
Folk call me an idiot all the time Charles, it doesn't bother me much. After listening to that podcast I was quite inspired so thought I'd share it with the film geeks on here, it's a really decent listen if you're into titles or even the workings of the film industry. I do believe the Mac thing is like a consumerist cult though, the shops are even like bad 1970's churches.

I'll check it out for sure. Thanks.
Charles Knowlton on Aug 12, 2015
The whole series is good Charles, from the concept artists to title graphics folks, I find it all really interesting. All the films where we don't even notice the design are the best, but it's good to hear about the work that goes into them.
