So there are a few different versions of the late Steve Jobs biopic currently in production, but JOBS is the first out of the gate with footage and release date. Starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs (more on that below), the film follows the beginnings of Steve Jobs’ career. We’ve been granted the first footage from JOBS, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, and it’s definitely interesting.
First of all, I love the angle that they’re taking of having the film be about Jobs trying to revamp Apple as a company. However I’m still not completely sold on the idea of Kutcher as Steve Jobs. Maybe because Jobs is such an iconic figure in technology advancement, but I have a hard time picturing Kutcher as Jobs. I honestly don’t know if there is anyone who could do that. However the footage isn’t completely terrible, so I will hold my tongue from here on out until I see the film.
JOBS hits theaters on April 19, and it premieres at Sundance tomorrow. We will see the reviews come in soon enough!
You can check the first clip after the break, but let us know in the comments if you think Kutcher is a good fit as one of the biggest technological revolutionaries of our time.
