The teaser trailer for Steve Jobs was much like the products created by its eponymous late tech guru – flashy and got lots of people talking, but honestly didn’t have many features, and the ones it did have, we’ve all seen before. I believe this is where I drop the obligatory “Bazinga!”, right?
Jokes aside though, just like so many millions of people around the world who love Apple products, we got excited for it anyway. I mean, how could you not? And expect that excitement to multiply exponentially after the release of this crackling first full trailer for the flick, as it shows off the stupid amount of talent talent involved in this. Behind the camera you have director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (West Wing, The Social Network, Moneyball), who between them boast two Oscars, two Golden Globes, five Emmys and over 150 other film awards.
Then we come to cast led by arguably the second best male actor on the planet right now (don’t worry, Daniel Day Lewis, you still reign supreme) in Michael Fassbender as the complicated and often unpleasant Jobs, backed up by a stellar cast of fellow award winners and critical darlings in Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Sarah Snook among others. Oh and also Seth Rogen. But hell, even he looks to have stepped up his game considerably to the point where I’ve overcome my usual urge to punch him in the mouth, and just really want to see this damn movie now.
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
Steve Jobs also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Perla Haney-Jardine, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. It is scheduled for release on October 9, 2015.
