The first trailer for Ashton Kutcher‘s ‘Jobs’ was released earlier today, giving the wider public its first glimpse at the movie after it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival tomixed reviews earlier this year.
The film was originally scheduled for release in April, but will now receive a widespread release on August 16, 2013. A minute-long clip was released back in January but the trailer showcases a number of scenes from the film.
“Jobs”, which stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, is one of several Jobs-related films in the works or already released. Back in April, rumor site Funny or Die released a rather poorly received “iSteve” comedy film starring Justin Long, who had played the “Mac” character in Apple’s long-running “Mac vs. PC” ad campaign.
A third film is being written by Aaron Sorkin and is the official adaptation of Jobs’ authorized biography by Walter Isaacson. The film, which is still in the early stages of development, is planned to encompass three 30-minute scenes showing Jobs backstage just prior to the launches of the original Mac, NeXT, and the iPod.
