Steve Jobs, who died at the age of 56, was one of the most emblematic figures of the 21st century. We all have been expecting the biography movie about Steve Jobs for far too long now. After all, the great stories of people, who have changed and/or accelerated the revolutionary technologies by their inventions or technological improvements have always been attractive to the movie industry.
“Jobs” is expected in the theatres on August the 16th, starring Ashton Kutcher in the tittle role, and Josh Gad in the role of the co-founder of Apple - Steve Wozniak.
Ashton Kutcher is known for his love towards new technologies, but he admits that there were some quite stressful moments for him during the filming. According to the actor, it is much more difficult to play someone who you admire. Kutcher also said he was totally devastated by the news of Steve Jobs' death, and he actually agreed to play the part because he really wanted to show people from all over the world what Jobs has given to society. Here is what Ashton Kutcher says: “I will never forget the day he died. I was going home and I had to pull the car over. Then I thought that most people actually take everything he gave us for granted, without realizing how great his contribution really is.”
The charming actress Anne O'Reilly will perform the role of Chris-Ann Brennan – the girl Steve Jobs has been dating for several years. Chris-Ann Brennan is also the mother of Job's daughter Lisa, who the computer magnate initially refuses to acknowledge. However, later he acknowledged his paternity.
The biography movie is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, who actually filmed a part of the movie in the garage in Palo Alto, California, where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak start the great Apple empire in 1976. Matt Whiteley is the writer of the script. “Everyone has their own opinion about Steve Jobs and that is why they invest in different parts of his live story. So, the challenge is to decide which part of the story to tell without ignoring someone”, says the director of the movie.
“Jobs” is a movie that tells about three decades of Steve Jobs' life – from his college rejection to his rising as one of the greatest entrepreneurs of the 20th century. The movie also shows the “rough” face of Steve Jobs, which many people probably have never heard of. So, you will also have the chance of seeing the strict and very demanding Steve Jobs.
According to some critics, the official trailer of the movie shows the founder of Apple as too “shiny” and “bright” personality, which does not really correspond with the truth. Wozniak himself, who is the other co-founder of Apple, said that the official trailer or the movie presents him in a more accurate perspective, although he does not defines himself as the typical nerd, who deals with computers. In addition, Wozniak truly believes that Steve Jobs was actually a darker personality at the beginning of their business relationship. However, his personality has undergone through some changes, especially after his return to Apple, which also coincides with the perception of some Eastern spiritual ideas.
The biography movie “Jobs” was initially planned to be released in theatres on April the 19th, in order to coincide with the 37th anniversary of the company. However, the release was postponed and the new première date for the United States is August the 16th.
Of course, some people believe that the choice of the new release date is not accidental, because the producers are hoping for some massive ticket sales. The reason why they think “Jobs” is being released on August the 16th is that there are some other productions, such as, for example “Kick Ass 2”, “Lee Daniels' The Butler”, and “Paranoia” that are to be released on the same date.
Meanwhile, Sony is making a separate biography movie about Steve Jobs that is based on the Walter Isaacson about the founder of Apple. However, the information about this project is still very scarce.
