New 'Steve Jobs' Trailer: Michael Fassbender's Apple Co-Founder Envisions a "Beautiful" Personal Computer
The latest look at the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-scripted film provides more glimpses of Jobs' interactions with Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels and Seth Rogen's characters.
Michael Fassbender's Steve Jobs envisions a technological future of "beautiful" personal computers in the latest trailer for the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-scripted biopic about the Apple co-founder.
The new Steve Jobs preview begins with images of Jobs preparing for the presentations the film focuses on, with a voiceover of him telling Jeff Daniels' John Sculley, "What if the computer was a beautiful object? Something you wanted to look at and have in your home? And what if, instead of it being in the right hands, it was in everyone's hands?"
Sculley replies, "We'd be talking about the most tectonic shift in the status quo since — "
"Ever," finishes Jobs.
The second official trailer for Steve Jobs, debuting after the film premiered to rave reviews at the Telluride Film Festival, features rapid-fire images of Jobs preparing for the three major Apple presentations the film focuses on, fighting with Apple's board and being pushed to connect with his daughter.
"What you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you when you're a father," Kate Winslet's Joanna Hoffman tells Jobs at one point. "That's what's supposed to be the best part of you."
Meanwhile, Seth Rogen's Steve Wozniak is heard telling Jobs, "We will know soon enough if you're Leonardo da Vinci or just think you are," and, "I'm the only one who knows that this guy is someone you invented."
Steve Jobs started at Sony, where David Fincher initially was attached to direct, and Christian Bale was considered to play Jobs. Boyle replaced Fincher, and Fassbender was cast as Jobs after Bale exited the project. Sorkin's script, based on Walter Isaacson's biography, focuses on three presentations Jobs gave that defined his life and his role at Apple.
Universal picked up the film after Sony put it in turnaround. The film is set to hit theaters on Oct. 9.
