Today the teaser trailer for the anticipated Steve Jobs has been released, giving us our first look at the film which was directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. It stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Apple leader, and will be a much different experience than 2013’s Jobs, the lackluster Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher. Boyle’s film will only have three scenes, focusing on three of apple’s iconic product launches, with the film ending with the unveiling of the iMac in 1998.
The first teaser trailer calls to mind that first Social Network trailer (which Sorkin also wrote), not giving us too much but a quick glimpse of Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogan as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh, Joanna Hoffman, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley.
We get a very narrow (literally) look at footage from the film in the trailer, which features various pieces of (very Sorkin) dialogue placed over it. The short trailer gives off a rather dark tone, only giving us a few glimpses. But man, Fassbender really did pull off the look. I’m excited to see how it all turns out.
Steve Jobs will be released into theaters on October 9. Watch the trailer below.
