New Steve Jobs trailer out – Michael Fassbender's performance seems top-notch

New Steve Jobs trailer out – Michael Fassbender's performance seems top-notch
Well, folks, we are about to be treated to another Steve Jobs biopic later this year, and as things go – teasers and trailers will be rolling out to hype us up for the movie. Instead of Ashton Kutcher, we will see Michael Fassbender put on the circular specs and give us some insight on the person that Steve Jobs was. The movie is based on Walter Isaacson's best selling biography – Steve Jobs – with its script penned by Aaron Sorkin, and is being touted as a “more accurate” depiction of the Apple co-founder's life.

So, after the teaser we saw at the end of May, Universal has now released a 2:30 minute trailer for the movie. The clips we are treated to show a spectacular Jobs portrayal by Mr. Fassbender, and it seems that the movie will not spare us some of the former Apple CEO's more negative... quirks.

The biopic seems to follow the story of Apple's first rise to fame, then moves through Jobs being fired from the company, and, of course, shows us his return. Earlier reports state that the movie will be set backstage at three separate product launches and will end around the time the first iPod was introduced. Unfortunately, it seems we will not get a depiction of the iPhone and iPad's creation – again.

“Steve Jobs” will be out on October 9th. Check out the trailer below and let us know – what do you think of Mr. Fassbender's portrayal of the visionary CEO and Mr. Rogen's Woz?

Just from the trailer i see no resemblance between Michael Fassbender(acting, looks"muscular body"....really) and the real Steve Jobs. At least Ashton Kutcher looked the part. I like Fassbender don't get me wrong but his not the right pick for the role.

Yes, Ashton Kutcher was close

i would take Fassbender over a guy who doesn't even know how to act. And plus this is a biopic, not some look-a-like contest.

Fass is arguably the best actor of this generation.

He can bend an iPhone for sure.

I've seen the trailer. Best portrayal of Steve Jobs. Besides he was somewhat a tyrant to both co-workers and his wife.

It's okayish...could've been better with an actor that actually looked like Steve Jobs.

I preferred Pirates of Silicon Valley over the Kutcher debacle, but Fassbender at least has me considering this one.
