In the just released trailer for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic called, yup, ‘Steve Jobs,’ we get a taste of what the film will explore, including the darker side of the Apple legend’s life.
In Steve Jobs, which will hit theaters on Oct. 9, Michael Fassbender will take on the role of Apple cofounder, Steve Jobs, who sadly passed away in 2011 at the age of 56. Before his untimely death, though, Steve experienced fame, fortune– and a lot of hardship. The film, written by Aaron Sorkin, will attempt to depict the full spectrum of Steve’s too-brief life, including the highest highs and the lowest lows. Watch the intense trailer now!
“You’re not an engineer, you’re not a designer, you can’t put a hammer to a nail,” Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) tells Steve in this full length trailer. “I built the circuit board, the graphical interface was stolen. So how come, ten times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius? What do you do?” he asks him.
“Musicians play their instruments,” Steve responds. “I play the orchestra.” And thus begins this trailer, which is as fast paced and intense as Steve’s life itself.
While Steve found tremendous professional success (duh), he struggled in his personal life. “Your Apple stock was $441 million, while your daughter and her mother are on welfare,” a woman (who we can assume is said daughter’s mother) tells him. “She’s not my daughter!” he barks back.
It seems, while Steve was cultivating his technological empire, he was actively diminishing all his relationships. “If you keep alienating people for no reason, there’s gonna be no one left for you to say hello to,” a friend warns him. The film also stars Jeff Daniels and Kate Winslet.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited for the film?
