The first trailer for the Aaron Sorkin-written biopic about Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, sure makes the former CEO look like a completely maniacal asshole (coincidentally he probably wouldn’t be too thrilled that it released the same day as leaked pictures for Apple’s IPhone 6S).
“Musicians play their instruments,” Jobs says. “I play the orchestra.”
Esquire reports about the upcoming movie:
Structured around three Apple product lunches (perfect for Sorkinesque walk-and-talks), Jobs appears to be the no-holds-barred telling of the Jobs myth. Michael Fassbender plays the technological artist with diabolical precision. He’s terrifying. Alongisde Fassbender are: Seth Rogen, stepping up his dramatic game as Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh, and Jeff Daniels as Apple CEO John Sculley, and Inherent Vice actress Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend and mother of his estranged child.
The seemingly riveting film is set to release October 9, four days after the fourth anniversary of Steve Jobs’ passing. If the trailer is any indication, well, Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle might be receiving a few thank yous from the Oscars stage come February 2016.
My money’s on Seth Rogen for best supporting actor.
