Steve Jobs with his reflective gaze
Steve Jobs with his reflective gaze

The public interest in Steve Jobs still remains despite the sub-par movie starring Ashton Kutcher in 2011. Now the saga continues with Aaron Sorkin’s penned version starring Micheal Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 300) as the man himself in Steve Jobs. Directed by Danny Boyle (Moon), now we have a better look at the movie in the full fledged trailer.

The trailer hints a lot on Jobs as a genius who is demanding and abrasive, to the point he alienates his daughter, which is the core of the story. The screenplay’s focuses around the back stage of three iconic Apple product launches, especially between Jobs and his first daughter.

Sorkin’s greatest skill is his snappy and smart dialogue which is abundantly clear in the trailer and it should set it above the 2011 version. Besides that, we got to see Seth Rogen in unusually serious role as Steve Wozniak; Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman the key marketing head honcho and original crew of Macintosh team and finally Jeff Daniels as the former Apple CEO John Sculley.

We get the feeling that the movie will be measured against other recent biopics like The Imitation Game (about Alan Turing) and The Theory of Everything (Steven Hawking). And of course, who can forget another Aaron Sorkin’s work of tech genius, The Social Network (2010) – the biopic of the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg. It remains to be seen if this movie able to hold its ground in comparison.

The movie is set to open on 9 October 2015.
