Universal Releases First Trailer for 'Steve Jobs' Movie

After filming began earlier in January, and a few photo leaks soon thereafter, not much had been heard surrounding Universal Picture's Steve Jobs movie. Today, however, the studio released the first official trailer for the new movie.

The trailer is mostly a single shot of Michael Fassbender as Jobs, with cast voice overs providing snippets and teases of conversations regarding Jobs' true legacy at Apple. While it doesn't reveal much that wasn't already known, the one minute teaser provides a handful of closer looks as Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, and Jeff Daniels as Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Joanna Hoffman, and John Sculley, respectively.


The movie has faced turmoil over the years as it began development, with multiple actors up for the titular role and even a change of studios due to scheduling conflicts between Danny Boyle, the film's director, and Sony. This year, as the film's October 9 release date grew nearer, casting calls and set photos began popping up online, even going so far as to offer fans the first glimpse of Fassbender in full costume as Jobs.

Fassbender's appearance... OKish, if you disregard the blue eyes.
The voice, hardly.

Rogen as Woz... no. Why is it that they think they've nailed Woz as soon as they've put glasses on a random fat comedian?

Guy looks nothing like Jobs and I'm a fan of Job, but I don't really think there is anything interesting enough to make a movie about that hasn't already been covered.

Fassbender is a great actor.
However he looks more like Bill Gates than Jobs which is hard to look past.

Always so cringeworthy and over the top. Why can't they just do a really good documentary instead?
