Steve Jobs changed the world. So, naturally interest for the upcoming biopic "JOBS," which sees Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple co-founder, has spread to non-English-speaking countries. For instance, Japan, the land of gadgets and gizmos. Apparently, the film's Japanese distributor is gearing up for a theatrical release and has unveiled a pretty nifty trailer on their official website. It's short, but the preview does show a bit more footage of Kutcher as the older gray-haired Jobs, known for wearing black mock-turtlenecks, blue jeans, and sneakers. Take a look, above.
The film itself will cover the tech mogul's first 30 years with Apple -- from humble beginnings to ousted rebel to returning leader. Directed by Swing Vote's Joshua Michael Stern (eek!) and co-starring Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine and Lukas Haas (hmm, right on!), "JOBS" opens in the States next month, August 16th.
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, Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, J.K. Simmons, Lesley Ann Warren, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine, Kevin Dunn
