AceShowbiz - Universal Pictures debuted the first trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs", on Sunday, May 17, via YouTube. It gives a glimpse of Michael Fassbender as the titular Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, wearing glasses and black turtleneck.
The trailer opens with Fassbender in his role back facing the camera with some voiceover of his colleagues' criticism and compliment addressed to him. "You can't write code, you are not an engineer," a man says. Jobs replies, "The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra." A woman continues, "I love that you don't care how much money a person makes, you care what they make, but what you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you."
The trailer doens't reveal much about the movie's plot but it features glimpses of other characters such as Joanna Hoffman (Kate Winslet), one of the original members of the Macintosh and NeXT teams, Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen), the computer programmer and electronics engineer and John Sculley (Jeff Daniels), who served as the CEO of Apple.
The film recounts "the story of Steve Jobs who made a career out of following his curiosity and combining practicality with aesthetics, function with beauty. He revolutionized the computer, music and mobile industries. His humble beginnings and propensity to take the road less traveled are well documented." The biopic is slated to be released in the U.S. on October 9.
