The official poster for Universal Pictures‘ Steve Jobs is here and it’s certainly evocative of the sleek, sparse Apple ads we’ve seen over the last 20 years. Steve Jobs is Universal’s main Oscar player this year with hopes for its director Danny Boyle, writer Aaron Sorkin, lead actor Michael Fassbender, supporting actress Kate Winslet and supporting actors Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels.
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]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. Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award® winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin, Boyle and Academy Award® winner Christian Colson. Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.[/box]
Steve Jobs opens October 9th after premiering at the New York Film Festival as the Centerpiece film.
