And, I must add that the casting of Ashton Kutcher in the role of of Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak was inspired.
Both actors have embodied the look and spirit of The Steves and render strong, credible performances in this much-anticipated film about one of the greatest inventors of our time.
The 2013 American biographical drama film primarily focuses on the life of Steve Jobs, from 1971 to 2000, although Josh Gad did mention on Jay Leno’s show that Steve Jobs’ death is addressed in the film, although I am not totally sure what he means; he never expanded on his statement.
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matt Whiteley, and produced by Mark Hulme,
Jobs was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
It will be released to theaters on August 16, 2013 and, for me, this date cannot come fast enough. Although, a huge part of me wants to watch it via Apple TV or on my iPad! That would be truly iconic, no?
Have a glimpse at the trailer below – it really looks like a well-formulated and thought provoking movie.
