jOBS trailer, Kutcher 2.0 released
The cult fans of Apple and Steve Jobs went crazy over the trailer for jOBS, the film about Steve Jobs and the Apple company, but for others it might just breeze past them. One thing can be said whatever camp you're in, Ashton Kutcher looks like he's going to be getting a lot of praise for his performance and I'm basing that on the trailer alone.
The film is written by first time feature writer Matt Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern who directed Swing Vote and apart from Kutcher we're also going to see Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine, J.K. Simmons, Lesley Ann Warren, Ron Eldard and Kevin Dunn.
I'm not an Apple fan and I don't go in for the closed and controlling way the hardware and software operates, I like open, interconnecting systems. That said I do appreciate what Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne have done with the style and the innovation that Apple has brought to the computer industry.
That said I didn't really see how exciting a film about Steve Jobs would be, especially since I'm not one of the Apple followers, but after seeing the trailer it does look like there's going to be a lot of drama in it.
