Trailer debuts for documentary on Steve Jobs; film opens in select theaters on September 4th

Universal's "Steve Jobs" movie is scheduled to premiere in theaters on October 9th, starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. But another movie about the late Apple co-founder and CEO is expected to hit select theaters on September 4th. And we can assure you that the person playing Steve Jobs will be the best ever to earn that role, having the chops to portray every nuance of his complex personality. That's because the movie actually stars the real Steve Jobs.

The first trailer for the documentary called "Steve Jobs. The Man In The Machine" was released on Friday. The two-hour film, promoted as being a "provocative and sometimes startling re-evaluation of the legacy of an icon," is from Oscar winner Alex Gibney. 

The documentary actually premiered at SXSW, which is where Apple executive Eddy Cue saw it. Cue and other Apple employees were not impressed, with many of them walking out in the middle of its showing. Cue tweeted that the film was "An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It's not a reflection of the Steve I knew."

This will be the fourth theatrical release of a movie dealing with the life of Steve Jobs to have hit theaters in the last two years. "Jobs," which starred Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, failed miserably at the box office. The satire "iSteve" also had a brief run on the silver screen. Starring former Apple pitchman Justin Long as Jobs, the film was written in three days and shot in five.

You shouldn't be glad on someone's death. Looks like you are nothing but a loser in real life & that's y you write crap on the Internet all the time to feel good. Grow up dude.

But why be glad someone's dead, that's done nothing to you, and nothing directly criminal? He's glad Jobs is dead, simply cause he hates Apple. He also posts a lotta crap (including racism), just for attention. AnTuTu is right.

its not like all tech people dont know this problem is most apple fans dont know it, and if anything this pushes them away seeing he had nothing to do with building this stuff just telling people what he wanted it to do, a what if guy. the average apple consumer does not know anything about the product or the people behind it and the lies still today being made, they buy it for the logo and now that its not an exclusive and has less than all the others and can do less these movies sway peoples thoughts. like the kid he made the imac he made the ipod he made the iphone he made nothing but hell for anyone that worked with him for him or around him

The first one was horrible. Not many biopics are interesting anyway.

15. gaming64 unregistered

The Social Network though. Can't argue with that.

It's pretty much the same as the Jobs story - theft.

If the movie was mean-spirited, then it was a perfect reflection of Jobs. Unless he meant that they left out selfish, disloyal, abusive, plagiaristic and narcissistic.

This is supposed to be the second movie about Steve Jobs, would be more fitting to call it Steve Jobs S
