Jobs got a bit of a mixed reaction when it debuted earlier this year at Sundance, with some saying it was interesting and well acted, while others found it a bit of a dull journeyman effort. The distributor when delayed it from a planned spring opening, with some saying they may have been doing some tinkering in the editing room.
Now a colourful new poster for the movie has emerged, with Ashton Kutcher doing a good job of looking like Steve Jobs.
The film is about Apple co-founder Jobs, following him ‘from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth through his darkest days, brightest triumphs, and the ultimate power of his drive, his passions, and his undying will to change everything we thought possible. Dark, honest, and uncompromising, Jobs plunges into the depths of Steve Jobs’ character, uncovering his driving motivations, his gifts, his flaws, his failures, and his ultimate successes.’
It hits US cinemas on August 16th. No UK date is set yet.
