The first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic has arrived, offering a steely glimpse at Michael Fassbender's take on the Apple Mac prodigy.
Written by Aaron Sorkin, 'Steve Jobs' certainly recalls the Oscar winning screenwriter's previous tech master drama 'The Social Network' with its foreboding sense of impending tragedy and loneliness in the crowd vibe.
The synopsis for the film is: Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
Essentially, the film will be three long scenes stitched together to create a three act biopic. Given that '128 Hours' and 'Slumdog Millionaire' director Danny Boyle is at the helm, we are betting that the precedings will be far from stuffy.
Alongside Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, the film's supporting cast is impressive with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley.
The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
Previously up for the title role were other acclaimed actors including Christian Bale and Boyle's 'The Beach' star Leonardo DiCaprio.
