'Steve Jobs' Debuts in Select Theaters as First Full Scene Debuts Online

The much-anticipated Steve Jobs film today launches in select theaters across the United States, following its debut at a few film festivals throughout September and October. To coincide with the film's release, on its YouTube channel Universal Pictures has published a handful of new TV spots, inside looks, and the first full clip from the movie. In the scene, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak confronts Michael Fassbender's Steve Jobs over the impending launch of the NeXT Computer.


Alongside the scene, Universal shared four new TV spots for the movie that have been promoting its release over the past few weeks, most of them centering around Rolling Stone's four-star review of the film. The company also shared "a look inside" the newly released film, including short interview clips with its cast and crew that focus on writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle.

The first impressions of the film at festivals in Telluride and New York have been largely positive, centering on Fassbender's performance and the risky, yet rewarding liberties that Sorkin takes with certain aspects of Jobs' life. Currently, the film sits at a 91 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 50 fresh reviews to 5 rotten.

Steve Jobs launches today in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles and will see a slow rollout to more select theaters in places like Toronto and Boston on October 16. The actual, wide release is set for closer to the end of the month on October 23.

I wish HBO would make a 10 episode Steve Jobs series, it would allow for so much more detail and nuance.

I'm going to see it eventually because I try to watch every film I can get my hands on. I'm sure it's a good film, good acting, writing, excellent quality.

As a film about a person that lived and made a profound impact on our world along with thousands of other Apple Employees deserves much more than a 90 minute 3-parter from Hollywood.

I've watched / read every major work about Steve's life but having followed Apple and loved Apple and the people that made it happen for the last 20 years, everyone has done the story a major disservice.

That's just how this goes though. No biographer can capture everything.


Edit:
I attended every Steve Jobs announcement / major appearance since 2003 until his passing in 2011 sometimes on my own dime and sometimes w/ a media badge. I feel so incredibly lucky to be there at MWSF 2007 for the iPhone announcement. Everyone was there. Old friends, family and his extended family of colleagues for which Steve spent his life with. After the announcement, I usually walk up and just snap photos of various Apple employees and hang out for a bit before departing Moscone West Hall and there's Steve with his wife and John Lasseter and a few others. He hugs his wife for close to a minute and asks, "How did I do?" Another older woman was there and he's asking her, "Are they going to buy this thing? Do you think they get it? I really hope I captured it"

A few people were crying, lots of hugs, it was this moment I never thought I'd see. Steve, one of my heroes growing up asking for validation from his closest family..their acceptance that this cellular phone that he and his friends spent 10 years developing was good enough for them.

No one has captured that realness. I'll keep waiting for that to show up in a book.

Anyone else feel like the movie "Jobs" with Ashton Kutcher seems more realistic?

I know this is only 2 min, but still.

Myself or no one here knows, but we can only take a guess...I'm thinking Apple paid rotten tomatoes a lot of money to put it at 91%...not a lot of movies get this kind of ratings.
lol, are you serious ? well based on this http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/steve_jobs_2015/ there are 55 reviews, and 50 of them are positive reviews... it could go down when bad reviews coming in.

And Apple executives doesn't like this movie, why would they pay reviewers to get better rating ? LOL...
