‘Jobs’ featurette previews upcoming movie on Apple co-founder

Ahead of the movie’s upcoming release, a new ‘Jobs’ featurette has been released previewing Ashton Kutcher’s take on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Set to hit theatres on August 16, ‘Jobs’ is a movie biopic of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, tracking the talismanic leader’s path from launching the now iconic company out of his parent’s garage, all the way to unveiling the iPod, the device which rewrote the brand’s ailing fortunes at the time.

The newly unveiled featurette shows a combination of movie footage and behind the scene cast interviews, highlighting that Apple’s success hasn’t been down solely to its products, but the man who for a long time acted as the driving force behind its desire to innovate.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern and staring Kutcher as the Apple mastermind, ‘Jobs’ has received mixed early reviews and prompted scathing comments from the company’s other co-founder, Steve Wozniak.

Stating that Jobs would have been “a little offended and embarrassed by it,” Wozniak, speaking in a recent interview slated the film.

He stated: “As far as the personalities that were in that scene this was just ridiculous. Like Steve Jobs as some sort of ‘oh my gosh, I’m the father of society, I’ve got the ideas that are gonna drive the–‘ No, he didn’t act like that at all.”
