The ‘jOBS’ movie with Ashton Kutcher will premiere in US theaters on August 16
After the first Steve Jobs biopic film by Funny or Die proved to be terrible, the second one, this time a totally different production featuring Ashton Kutcher in the Role of Jobs is set to premiere in US theaters on August 16th.

The movie ‘jOBS’ with Kutcher will undoubtedly come under the microscope of both Apple fans and critics, all looking for an accurate representation of the life and legacy of one of tech’s monumental figures.

Expectations are not for this to become an absolutely accurate portrait of Jobs, but rather draw the lines of his personality and highlights some of the most important moments in his life.

Kutcher will play with Josh Gad in the role of the other Steve in Apple, Steve Wozniak. The movie is directed by Joshua Michael Stern of ‘Swing Vote’ and will be distributed by Open Road Films. Take a look at the early trailer below.

Still not convinced on Ashton Kutcher playing the roller of Steve Jobs, but then again... I wasn't sure how Hugh Jackman was going to pull off being Wolverine. Looks good though.

Hugh nailed wolverine, other than the height difference.

Is this a stoner comedy?

What's so special about Steve Jobs? Or it is just a hidden Apple's intention to keep hype about Steve Jobs?

"whatever you think of him, he did more then anyone on here ever has for tech." Could you tell me what exactly he did for tech? He was just a marketing specialist!

marketing is the key to success, look at apple and samsung without the right marketing nothing would have took off, the iphone would have been a failure and tech wouldnt of been propelled forward to where we are now and he still did more then all those on here that love to take childish digs.

Implying someone provided more in tech than any other person, your assuming in a technical aspect, not marketing as your stating now, completely different. I'm pretty sure Tesla would have to diagree with you on that one, just one of many people who truely had a world changing impact for mankind that help shaped the way that we live today.

ohh please i know your kind hate anything apple but this is pathetic. cant give credit where its due the iphone changed the smartphone industry for the better, no one can say otherwise and the success was thanks to clever marketing and making it the must have device. this guy was a marketing genius so ofcourse he changed the tech world and did more then anyone on here your going to absurd levels to try and play down the impact steve had. i mean he had such an impact there are people like you and phoneyarenauser that hate him probably because he did more then they could ever dream if you want to be over the top fine, when fans start praising google i will comment and say i think the greeks will disagree they had one of the first computers and without computers google are nothing so all praise to the greeks right??

Chaotic I, and pretty much everyone else on this site know what you're getting at. These two limp brains also know, but refuse to admit it due to them hating Steve so much. Tech is as much about being a visionary as it is building a mother board. The man is almost single handily responsible for where tech is today. I understand what you meant.

I know Steve Jobs, but who is Telsa... See what chaotic means?

I also don't know who is "Telsa" (as you have wrote), but I know who is Tesla. And if you was talking about the Tesla and you don't know who is he, then it just shows how poor you are educated.

"whatever you think of him, he did more then anyone on here ever has for tech." I'm asking you again, what exactly he did for tech? "...the iphone would have been a failure and tech wouldnt of been propelled forward to where we are now..." Sou you say that if not Steve Jobs then tech world would stopped to evolve? Have you ever heard that there is more tech companies apart Apple? Do you realize that technological evolution was here even before Apple company was founded? Steve Jobs has done a lot for his company but nothing for tech. Almost all inventions was made before Steve Wozniak left the company because he is a genius but for some reasons all hype is not about Steve Wozniak but about Steve Jobs, Steve Jobs was just a marketing specialist and nothing more. Apple just artificially increasing hype about Steve Jobs.

Also I suggest you to watch this video: "Has Apple Really Ever Invented Anything?"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFeC25BM9E0

I really liked the part where he proved the Apple logo was invented be Eve, lol! And he's right, Apple is trying to use the courts as a business tool to eliminate their competition. They can't beat em', so they sue em'!

I was interested in this, but I'm on an Ashton Kutcher hate bent for ruining Two and a Half Men. He's on a level with Nicholas Cage right now - I can't watch anything he's in.

I think this movie will fail it's not comedy neither dramatic just the biography of a man that a lot of people don't even know him I am not saying he is not a good person or I don't live him but the truth is that he isn't that famous among people

A lot of people recognize him but not many exactly knows something about him, majority of peoples just follow Apple's artificially increased hype about Steve Jobs without any actual knowledge.

Nope will never wast my money on this movie. N besides the silicone valley movie from the 90s is better than this crap.

This movie lost me at Josh Gad playing a clueless Steve Wozniak. Woz was the guy with all the levers, buttons, and dials behind the curtain; Jobs was just the big-headed holographic face claiming to be magical,
