Here’s the Trailer for Ashton Kutcher’s Steve Jobs Movie

The first trailer for “Jobs,” the highly anticipated Steve Jobs biopic, has finally hit the Web ahead of the film’s release later this summer.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, the film stars Ashton Kutcher as the Apple co-founder, and Josh Gad as his partner, Steve “The Woz” Wozniak, and promises to show Jobs’s evolution from college dropout to tech icon, chronicling the rise, fall and rise of Apple in the process.

The film has received early mixed reviews, including one from Apple co-founder Wozniak himself, who dismissed the film as “awful and atrocious” after reading an early version of its script.

“I’m not even sure what it’s getting at,” Wozniak said in a Gizmodo comment. “The personalities are very wrong although mine is closer … don’t forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with the ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn’t around and didn’t attend the club so he was the one learning about such impact of the future.”

“Jobs” debuts in theaters on Aug. 16.

The problem with the Billionaire Savior phase of the newspaper collapse has always been that billionaires don’t tend to like the kind of authority-questioning journalism that upsets the status quo.
