Steve Jobs documentary hits theaters and video-on-demand today

Rotten Tomatoes, however, gave the film a score of 75 which is not too shabby. The documentary is being screened in 65 theaters covering 50 markets; in case you missed the trailer, it is embedded below. VOD platforms offering the documentary include iTunes, VUDU, Xbox Video and the PlayStation Store. Pricing varies with the HD version available from iTunes for $4.99.
On October 9th, the Aaron Sorkin written Steve Jobs biopic will debut in theaters nationwide. This film stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs, and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. The movie, based on Walter Isaacson's best selling biography, is in three acts. The first act shows Jobs backstage just before the introduction of the Mac. The second act shows Jobs backstage before Apple announces its purchase of NeXT. That act not only brought Jobs back to Apple, it also led to the development of iOS. The third act shows Steve Jobs backstage prior to the unveiling of the Apple iPod.
Last year, the Ashton Kutcher vehicle Jobs failed miserably at the box office. If you haven't seen it yet, it is available on Netflix.

He wasn't P.S. One day history will mention him , only as the worst event in the tech industry(and not only there). He made a terrible harms there. And the media trying to make one brutal used-car seller (that had no clue about technology), a "HERO" and "Messiah" = is disgusting

I am still watching the documentary but i couldn't help but comment, the documentary is showing the other side of Jobs the one that isn't covered much by the media. In my books the one who deserves equal or even more recognition is Wozniak he is the real genius also the people who created the apple products. I guess Steve talent was in how to capitalize on Wozniak and other team members talents in creating the Apple products, add to that his design skills. But some how i don't feel he deserved the recognition he got i feel it was robbed from other deserving people. I am not hating here the guy was talented.... no doubt about it but he is no genius in my opinion.

Not a fan of him but i say he is a visionary because without him being a bully and brutal the Apple products wouldn't have come to life, not that i agree with his methods but then again without his foresight(vision) Apple wouldn't be what it is now.

Great guy, Ditching his daughter while earning millions. Not recognising her until shes not a kid anymore. Yep great idol for anyone. Especially when he was known not being even slightly a philanthropist. Since we are talking about good guys.

Thank you very much for the intro, I am honored to know you wait for me in such articles. As for the topic at hand, I think they've over done the Jobs thing a bit. This is like the 10th documentary/movie detailing the same thing in like the last 2 years. They'll literally destroy the mans memory to squeeze every single penny out of customers, ironically enough.

Yay VOD! Now expect the pirates to mercilessly go after this one...Haven't they learned anything from ''The Interview''? it's not the wisest idea to simultaneously release a film on VOD and in the theaters

I will admit confusion, there are three movies? "Steve Jobs"/"Jobs" (2013) "Steve Jobs" (2015) "Steve Jobs: The man in the machine" (2015) All about the same thing, his life?
