Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director Joshua Michael Stern’s Steve Jobs bio-pic Jobs. The film follows Steve Jobs’s ascension from college dropout into one of the most successful entrepreneurs of his generation. Looks like a by-the-numbers bio with a clearly complimentary take on the Apple co-founder.
The film premiered at Sundance to mixed reviews and its release was pushed back from April to August. Kutcher clearly looks the part and maybe his name and this solid trailer (with a big assist from Macklemore) will be enough to get people to see it in the theater.
The supporting cast includes Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney,Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
We follow Steve Jobs (ASHTON KUTCHER) from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth through his darkest days, brightest triumphs, and the ultimate power of his drive, his passions, and his undying will to change everything we thought possible. Dark, honest, and uncompromising, “Jobs” plunges into the depths of Steve Jobs’ character, uncovering his driving motivations, his gifts, his flaws, his failures, and his ultimate successes.
