It was initially set to be released in April, but after a rather lukewarm reception at this year's Sundance, Open Road Films made the decision to bump the release date back for the Ashton Kutcher-starrer "Jobs." The indie bio-pic, which chronicles the first 20 years of Steve Jobs' tech career, has now been penciled for a theatrical release beginning August 16th.
And to show they mean business, Open Road unveiled the film's first theatrical trailer, offering a meaty look at Kutcher as the beloved Apple co-founder (although, you should also take notice of scene-stealing Josh Gad, who portrays Jobs' loyal and portly colleague Steve Wozniak). The film, directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote), also stars Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, Matthew Modine, Lukas Haas and Lesley Ann Warren. Watch the trailer, above.
JOBS reveals the extraordinary life story behind the legend of the original innovator, the ground-breaking entrepreneur who let nothing stand in the way of greatness: Steve Jobs. Starting in 1971, the film tells the epic and turbulent story of the major moments and fascinating characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis through 2001, when the iPod was introduced to the world and changed modern technology forever.
Jobs stars Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad, James Woods, J.K. Simmons, Lesley Ann Warren, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine, Dermot Mulroney, Kevin Dunn
