REMAKE ALERT: ‘The Butterfly Effect’ Will Soon Strike Again

Back in 2004, the majority of the UTG staff was still in high school, iPods were still a cool thing, and Ashton Kutcher was generally known as Kelso from That 70s Show. Things changed that fall when a little movie called The Butterfly Effect, which found Kutcher taking his first dramatic turn, opened in theaters. Critics were not crazy about the film, but it eventually earned over $90 million on a $13 million budget, not to mention spawning two direct-to-dvd sequels. Now, according to Variety, the same team that delivered the original are going to try and …

Trailer for Ashton Kutcher Led Biopic ‘Jobs’ Hits the Web

Well it’s finally here. We’ve been teased for a while now about the Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, but today we get the first full-length trailer. The trailer shows Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs building Apple from the ground up, and the troubles that came with developing the now legendary company.

Jobs tells the story of Steve Jobs’ entire life, and the generally cheesy trailer follows as such by showing you basically the entire film. Ashton Kutcher seems to have more of a handle on the character than everyone previously predicted, but here in the UTG office we can’t help …

First Footage from Steve Jobs Biopic ‘JOBS’ Surfaces

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 …

HOLY SH!T: Ashton Kutcher Cast As Steve Jobs In “JOBS”

Ashton Kutcher has been cast to portray former Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie-biopic titled Jobs.

Variety broke the story yesterday, but we decided to hold off awhile as something this catching could easily be a prank, then found ourselves slowly coming to grips when we woke this morning to find no punchlines anywhere.

Kutcher, who currently keeps the sitcom Two And A Half Men afloat, will portray the life of Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple. Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) will direct from a script by Matt Whiteley. Five Star Institute’s Mark …
