Recut television trailer shows more of Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

A new one minute trailer for Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle's upcoming "Steve Jobs" film has hit American airwaves, providing eager viewers with another glimpse of Michael Fassbender in his role as Apple's mercurial cofounder.




The new trailer shows different cuts of many of the same scenes previewed in July. It opens with the original Mac introduction and closes on a later event toward the end of Jobs's second tenure at Apple.

Also shown are co-stars Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, and Kate Winslet. Rogen plays Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley, and Winslet portrays ex-Mac marketing chief Joanna Hoffman.





The script, penned by The West Wing's Aaron Sorkin, is based on Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs. Isaacson was personally selected by Jobs for the task, though many close to Jobs have taken issue with Isaacson's book since Jobs's death.

Directing duties fall to Slumdog Millionaire's Danny Boyle. The film will hit theatres on Oct. 9.

    Clearly this is all Sorkin's fantasy drama.

    Pretty much. I'm sure this will just contribute to the load of crap people believe about Jobs now. Won't be surprised if Movie Jobs goes on some invented anti charity rant too, that's a common refrain now.

    Alternate title:

    What if Steve Jobs lost his special brand of charisma and gained an Irish accent.

    Looks terrible.

    From the trailer it looks like it's 90 minutes of Steve Jobs being picked on by everyone from Woz to his own staff to the blooming fire marshal.

     

    1/10. Don't pick on geniuses.

    I don't think Cupertino will be big fans of this movie.

    Of course young Steve is going to be shown as arrogant. As is much of older Steve. He was. 

     

    Provided the main story is told, however dramatic the additions ( rain in cupertino in late Spring?), I will be happy enough.

    I'm a little uncomfortable with the notion the Jobs actually would have played the "changing the world" card

    quite so readily...I'm sure he knew it, even felt that way, but to play it so readily as your answer to everything?

    Can't believe he was that...tacky?  Insubstantial?  Doesn't ring true...but, I wasn't there, so...

    I can't get over how he looks nothing like Steve.

     

    As much as I hated the Ashton Kutcher film, he was a dead-ringer for the real Jobs when he was portraying the post-beard era Steve.

    Watched the trailer.... This reeks of hollywood overdramatization "YOUR DAUGHETR IS ON WELFARE BAWWWWWWW" "SHES NOT MY DAUGHTER"

     

    And Seth Rogen as Woz? Groce.

     

    Will watch it anyway, but so far it doesn't look like competition for Pirates of Silicon Valley

    I'll wait for the Steve Jobs Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas.

    "The fire marshall says we need to clear out."

    "Well, tell them that we're in here changing the world."

    That line made me cringe. Beginner Screenwriter Course 101 at USC Film School.

    Why does this Steve Jobs look so much more like real John Sculley?

    You're absolutely insane.  And let me say, I'll take what Aaron Sorkin writes over anyone on this site, including you.  Call me when you've written "Sports Night" and "The West Wing" and "The American President" and "Charlie Wilson's War" and "Moneyball"  and "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "The Newsroom" and whatever else I'm forgetting.

     

    Give me a freakin' break.  Every anonymous loser on the web thinks he is a perfect genius.  Get real.

    I really don't get the Sorkin worship. I find his work wordy, preachy and obvious.

    Or maybe he actually did say something that absurd... There are sure a lot of quotes saying over the top crap like that. Should they tone it done because reality seems unreal ;-).
