To many who knew him he was egotistical bastard, but to others a determined genius who made us all love that electronic fruit, Steve Jobs. With London Film Festival a matter of weeks away we get another look at a new UK trailer which captures the struggle between man and machine…
The world is changing a digital revolution is rising from the flames but in the new second UK trailer we see the failing of man regarded as a genius fail at been a husband, father, a human being. But can we see the world the way Steve did?
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
The film has recently made it’s world premiere debuting a 90% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes which is great considering Sony Pictures had no faith in the project with David Fincher (& Christian Bale as Jobs)behind the lens. Even Steve Wozniak (played by Seth Rogen in the film)gave it his thumbs up praising Fassbender for his stand out performance. It looks like Steve Jobs could bring Michael Fassbender the Oscar success he deserves, if not possibly MacBeth might help his cause.There is a focus on the game changing (original) macintosh, it’s not a conventional biopic but more of one focusing on his life via key product launches.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
Steve Jobs will close 59th BFI London Film Festival before opening in UK& Iirsh cinemas from 13th November (23rd October USA).
