Universal Studios released the first trailer of Steve Jobs, the upcoming biopic by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, and it features Michael Fassbender portraying the late Apple cofounder and CEO. This is the second biopic on Jobs, and has been highly anticipated since the project was first announced back in 2013.
The teaser trailer features Fassbender standing on stage in one of Jobs’s iconic Apple announcements. We also see a glimpse of Seth Rogen, who plays Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, as well Jeff Daniels (in the role of John Sculley) and Kate Winslet (in the role of Mac engineer Joanna Hoffman). The trailer is short and doesn’t reveal much, but we can tell that the production value is much higher than that of the first biopic on the Apple cofounder released in 2013.
Nearly two years ago, Tech.Co got an exclusive look at the the Steve Jobs biopic JOBS starring Ashton Kutcher. Based off Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs, the movie portraying his life and work was honestly, well, not that great (I was there, and did not like the movie – probably because it lacked many of the nuances of Jobs’ personality which was displayed in Isaacson’s book). Considering that this upcoming biopic has gone through numerous rewrites, revisions, and recasts, there’s are high expectations for what’s to come.
