Building more anticipation to its 2013 edition, Sundance Film Festival announces its Premieres lineup that compiles a list of starry movies. Among those which make it to the short list are Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs", Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction", and Amanda Seyfried's Linda Lovelace film "Lovelace".

Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic, which has been sucking people's attention since it was announced last April, will serve as the Closing Night Film. Sundance's director of programming, Trevor Groth, says that "Jobs" is picked to close the event because "there's something inspirational about it."

"To see what he achieved by just like staying true to his vision is something that, you know, I think a lot of people can relate to and get hope from," Groth continues. He also believes that the Jobs biopic will surely attract plenty of buyers, executives and agents during the much-awaited festival.

Kutcher also receives good words from festival's director John Cooper. "Ashton Kutcher's performance I thought was quite remarkable," Cooper gushes. "It's a very formidable performance by him and it seemed like he really tried to grasp all the nuances of who Steve Jobs was."

Back to the star-studded lineup, Nicole Kidman's intense thriller "Stoker" and Dakota Fanning's drama "Very Good Girls" are among the other highlights. Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks' touching drama "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete", as well as Shia LaBeouf and Rupert Grint's romance film "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" are also included in the list.

Sundance additionally releases a list of films for Documentary Premieres. Among the notable selections, there are Alex Gibney's "We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks", Dave Grohl's "Sound City", and Alison Ellwood's "History of the Eagles".
