Steve Jobs, the man who created the company known as Apple and took it to dizzying heights. The man who created the iPod, Iphone and iPad. But who was he really?
In this new biographic film directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and starring Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, we’ll get to find out who that man was. The screenplay is based upon the book of the same name which was written by Walter Isaacson.
Isaacson conducted over forty interviews with Jobs as well as speaking to more than one hundred family, friends, colleagues and adversaries. Jobs wavered all rights to reading the book before being published.
There are already two other films already out there about the founder of Apple, ‘Pirates of Silicon Valley’ which deals with his friendship with Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft. The other film, ‘Jobs’ stars Ashton Kutcher and is decidedly average.
‘Steve Jobs’ however obviously has much higher production values and looks to be the best film about the man so far.
Title: Steve Jobs | Release Date US: 9th October | UK: 13th November
