After a long period of behind-the-scenes ups and downs, Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs has successfully made its way through production. But while the movie isn't coming out until October, today we have our first look at the film in the form of a brand new teaser trailer.
Universal Pictures posted this first look trailer for Steve Jobs, which is pretty short on footage, but does still manage to showcase the movie's impressive cast - mostly through voice-over. It actually reminds me a lot of the first ever trailer for David Fincher's The Social Network - which also largely featured lines of dialogue, albeit over a variety of adjectives instead of a single shot from the film. Then again, this comparison isn't that hard to make when you consider the fact that Aaron Sorkin wrote the scripts for both films.
Of course, while the clip does mostly feature footage of the back of Michael Fassbender's head (it's admittedly a very compelling head), it does also take some quick moments to show off the main players in the bio-drama. Of course, there's Fassbender as the titular character himself:
Here is Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, one of the original members of the Macintosh and NeXT teams:
Next there's Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, the computer programmer and electronics engineer who co-founded Apple Computer:
And finally we have Jeff Daniels as John Sculley, who served as the CEO of Apple for a decade, from 1983 to 1993.
Rather than being a simple straight-forward biopic, Steve Jobs will instead be told in three chapters, all of which will be set backstage of three iconic product launches at which the titular company founder presented. It's expected that Fassbender, Rogen, Winsley and Daniels will play the key roles in the film, but the cast also includes Inherent Vice's Katherine Waterston and A Serious Man's Michael Stuhlbarg. The movie is currently in post-production, and will be released by Universal Pictures on October 9th.
