‘Jobs’ Trailer: Ashton Kutcher Invents Apple Computers

Published 2 years ago by

Hearing the late-great Steve Jobs name in the same sentence with Ashton Kutcher has been a head-trip for anyone who has caught wind of  the upcoming biopic Jobs. Truly, the casting of the central role was a bit of a head-scratcher – until old photos of Jobs revealed that the Apple Computers innovator looked uncannily like model-turned-actor Kutcher (in his younger years, at least).

…And the younger years of Steve Jobs are exactly what this film will cover. As evidenced by the very first Jobs trailer above, the drama will revolve around the genius’ break away from the establishment, and the rise-fall-rise-again arc of his time bringing Apple’s technological innovation to the world.

Jobs Movie Trailer Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs Jobs Trailer: Ashton Kutcher Invents Apple Computers

For his part, Kutcher looks like he’s trying his absolute best to nail down the look and attitude of Steve Jobs – but whether or not his best will be enough to impress audiences remains to be seen. Director Joshua Michael Stern’s biggest feature-film credit is the Kevin Costner political comedy Swing Vote, while the script was written by newcomer Matt Whiteley. An untested writer, leading man and a relatively untested director? Either things are going to go miraculously right for Jobs, or that competing Steve Jobs biopic from Aaron Sorkin is going to be left in a prime spot to improve upon the mistakes of its predecessor.

The supporting cast for Jobs includes James Woods, Dermot Mulroney, Luke Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine and Josh Gad (1600 Penn) as Jobs’ friend and partner, Steve Wozniak.


Jobs will now be in theaters on August 16, 2013.

  1. Maybe it’s just the fact that I think of him so much as Kelso from That 70s Show (and the way he talks here still reminds me of him), but Ashton Kutcher just doesn’t feel like he’s coming off as a smart guy like Steve Jobs in the trailer. The movie admittedly looks a little better than I expected, but I really need to reserve judgment until I see it, cause I’m unsure of this one.

  2. So I wonder how many elements they’ll change in the movie, from what actually happened like social network. Kutcher looks decent in this though.

    • Rent or watch Pirates of Silicon Valley and see!

      • Pirates of Silicon Valley was great, and Noah Wyle was awesome as Jobs. Kutcher has got big shoes to fill.

  3. I’m going to be honest here, from this trailer, Kutcher seems to have done a very good performance. I think he may get some acclaim for this, but it’s still pretty damn early. I’m definitely intrigued…

  4. Anyone else think it’s funny that the music in the trailer is the same music windows used in their commercials to introduce windows 8/tablets?

    • I thought the same thing, lol.

  5. This looks like its worth checking out. How true is “inspired by true events”?

  6. I’ll definitely be checking this one out… Maybe Ashton Kutcher’s got an Oscar nomination coming his way…

  7. It just looks like one long commercial to me…

    • Like The Internship is for Google ?

  8. Actually looks better than I imagined

  9. Ho hum, Apple propaganda and a giant commercial. Looks like garbage.

    I like Ashton Kutcher, he has some talent. But it seems like lately he’s getting some bad roles.

  10. this actually looks like a pretty good bio

  11. It looks like a good movie with good casting. However, as with Social Network, I can’t shake the feeling that this is a commercial as much as it is a movie.

  12. Not worth checking out.

    Anything that glorifies Apple or Jobs just smells of propaganda. He was a business genius, sure. But innovator? Visionary? I don’t think so.

    Most people don’t even realize the iphone, for example, came out at about the same time the industry started releasing big touch-screen smartphones. Jobs did NOT create the modern smartphones of today. (see the LG Prada as an example, it came out months before the iphone).

    With that said, I like Ashton Kutcher as well. But i won’t be seeing this garbage. And btw, Steve Wozniack himself has seen 10 minutes of it and hates it. Calls it factually wrong and grossly innacurate.

    • He might just be saying that to drive ticket sales….

  13. Actually Jobs did not invent anything – he was just brilliant in marketing.

  14. Spectacular yet simple, feel,look,drama,acting filled with elements from Mr Jobs early days , tll his ideas were triumphing into revolutionary n path breaking ideas, all seems fascinating and encouraging though.Talents imitating a huge talent at its best and should certainlytriump and touch peoples hearts ,am sure…a a winner is JOBS and here’s wishing AK AND TEAM JOBS …AN OSCAR A LA ARGO MY FAV LASTYEAR !!!

  15. Looks decent.This trailer reminded me of pirates of the silicon valley,which i really loved watching,hope this turns out to be good

  16. I think this looks fantastic I’m all in

  17. While this doesn’t look bad, if someone had told me it was a TV movie, I’d probably believe them. Kutcher’s delivery of that speech at the end was a bit cringeworthy. Jobs wouldn’t deliver it like that if it were for the commercial.

  18. I’d watch because it’s a Sorkin piece but I’d more than likely stay away because it’s Kutcher and Apple. Honestly, the only thing I’m grateful for regarding Steve Jobs is the creation of Pixar, otherwise, the only Apple products I’ve ever owned are iTunes and an iPod Classic.

    I prefer Samsung and Microsoft when it comes to smartphones and personal computers but I wouldn’t even want to see a movie about the founders of those companies either. Just seems like something that would be put to better use on Lifetime but conveniently written and released in theaters as an attempt at an easy Oscar nomination due to the Academy seemingly not having its finger on the pulse of regular moviegoers and choosing big, arty biopics as their main contenders instead.


  19. God it looks dull,and my internal cliche alarm exsploded just watching the trailer. Also just as a side not has anyone els noticed that Ashton Kutcher
    can’t act,like at all.

  20. 1 dimensional type of actor in Kutcher looks like a comedy to me and not “base on true events” maybe Jobs was a comedian Idk. Not interested.

  21. Looks like your usual biopic turd full of dramatization, twist of the truth to glamourize the reality.If you can’t deal with the truth as bleak and boring it might be, why do you want to make a movie out of it in the first place. Let’s not forget the extra bonus of a leading man who can’t act.

  22. Pirates of silicone valley is the only movie you need to see on this subject. but I gotta admit this film has me curious ’cause I’m interested in all that stuff

  23. watching the trailer Ashton seems to be doing good. Most of us arent really in a place to judge accurately anyways. This would be a hard role for anyone and they have a god enough cast where they can do a great job of portraying the story….. it is a biopic…

  24. Anyone knows the name of the song starting 1m 33s?
