First Video Clip of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

Following yesterday’s news that the independent film JOBSstarring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs will open in theaters on April 19, ETonline.com has released the first video clip from the film. The brief clip shows Kutcher as Jobs speaking with Josh Gad in the role of Steve Wozniak.

In the clip, Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) is raving about the operating system that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) created. While Jobs is certain that this will become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption, Wozniak needs convincing.

“Nobody wants to buy a computer,” says Wozniak.

“How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?” Jobs replies.


In related news, management appears to have made a change to the styling of the film’s title, as there had been a fair amount of confusion and criticism over the original “jOBS” styling, an homage to the “i” naming scheme for Apple’s products.

But it appears that in recent weeks various official presences for the film such as arevamped teaser siteTwitter account, and Facebook page have adopted a new all-caps styling for JOBS, with the “J” appearing slightly larger than the other capitalized letters in the film’s new promotional logo.

JOBS premieres tomorrow at the Sundance Film Festival ahead of the public release on April 19.
