'Steve Jobs' Earns $2.6 Million in Limited Release, Opens Wide Today

Steve Jobs has been out in limited release for two weeks now, meaning fans in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and select other locations in the U.S. and Canada have been able to see the Danny Boyle-directed film about the former Apple CEO ahead of today's official wide release. Since its debut on October 9, the movie has grossed $2,601,320 as of Wednesday, October 21.

With the wide release, Universal Pictures has uploaded a handful of new videos to its YouTube channel. Throughout its limited release, the company posted unique content surrounding the launch of the movie, including a video where Steve Wozniak discusses his relationship with the real Steve Jobs and new clips from the movie. Yesterday, a roundtable discussion video was posted showcasing the film's cast and crew talking about the legacy of Jobs.


The new movie, made on a budget of $30 million, is projected to gross between $15 and $19 million on opening weekend, with its direct competitor for the top spot at the box office being the supernatural horror sequel Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (via Variety). In total, Steve Jobs will expand from its 60 previous limited release theater locations to 2,411 across the country today.

Do we know if iTunes will carry this movie? (Did Tim say something about hell and it being cold:D?)

Otherwise I guess I can wait for a year until Netflix picks it up.
Personal opinion should not influence iTunes content...period.

It's a sad state of affairs in the movie industry when Paranormal Activity is this movie's top competitor.
I plan on seeing that movie and not the Steve Jobs movie.

The movie was good I really liked it. However, i do find the fact vs fiction part a bit uncomfortable. I saw it with a few friends who have never read the books or followed steve jobs' stories much before this, and they ended up talking about things like "omg i can't believe so many things happened before these events" or "omg i can't believe he actually met his biological father".

I told them those were purely fiction, they are semi true facts condensed into 3 product launches for the sake of the movie.

I feel like they should have made that more clear, and not confuse those who are less familiar with the real story.
