Joshua Michael Stern’s “jOBS” is the biography of Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, and traces the young buck (played by Ashton Kutcher) from his early days to his almost near-legendary status now, a year or so after his death. It also involves the creation of the first Apple I computer with Apple co-founder Steve “The Woz” Wozniak, pictured above with Kutcher’s Jobs. As someone who spends a lot of his time on either his computer or his Apple products, this is incredibly fascinating stuff to me, let me tell you.
Here’s your first clip from the film, which just finished up its Sundance run last week, and was recently acquired by Open Road Films. The distributor plans to release ‘jOBS” into theaters April 19, 2013. Which, yes, is also the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer. What a coincidence!
I gotta admit, I was skeptical about the movie, mostly due to Kutcher’s involvement. But the kid doesn’t look too bad here. Is this how it actually went down? Probably not. That’s why they call it “creative license”.
“jOBS” co-stars Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, Amanda Crew, Ron Eldard, Matthew Modine, Lukas Haas, and J.K. Simmons.
