When Steve Jobs was alive, it was hard to imagine a world without the inspirational inventor introducing us to one of his latest Apple product, yet somehow the tech giant’s legacy is still going strong four years after his passing. Jobs wasn’t exactly open about his life, thus making it hard to figure out the man behind the machines. Director Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs, from Aaron Sorkin outstanding screenplay adapted from the 2011 biography, as well as his own interviews, gives the world a way to get to know who Steve Jobs is, and how he saw the world.
Steve Jobs isn’t your traditional biopic. It’s broken into three major events in Jobs’ life all taking place 30 minutes in real time before the product launches of LISA, the NeXT, and iMac. And what makes it all captivating is the fact that in those three 30-minute pre-launches, we get to see a man who is clearly the smartest person in the room reveal himself to be a vulnerable yet headstrong man with a clear vision of bringing technology to the masses while creating a legacy that only a few could ever dream of.
Universal has released a new trailer for the new Steve Jobs biopic Steve Jobs. Directed by Danny Boyle (27 Days Later, 127 Hours) using a script written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The Newsroom), the film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular iconic who helped pave the way for a technological revolution. It will focus on the three iconic product launches which Jobs helped create as well as the boardroom politics, his family, and the drive the inventor had to bring the people the kind of technology that would change the world.
