So far, all we’ve seen are photos with Michael Fassbender playing the titular Apple co-founder in Danny Boyle‘s forthcoming biopic Steve Jobs. But today that changes as a brief teaser trailer has just surfaced showing off the X-Men: Days of Future Past and Shame star as the late technology innovator, complete with glasses and black turtleneck. The teaser has a vibe similar to the first trailer for The Social Network. That’s interesting, since David Fincher almost directed this film, and it still has a script from Aaron Sorkin.
Watch the Steve Jobs teaser trailer after the jump!
Here’s the teaser trailer for Steve Jobs from Collider:
Each of the film’s prominent stars, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh, Joanna Hoffman, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, get a quick voiceover line about Jobs. It’s all a brief glimpse into the clash Jobs has with his colleagues as he has dreams of changing the future of technology. As he says in the trailer, “The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra.”
Even though this is just a teaser trailer, I like this first glimpse of the movie, and it seems like it’s going to be very good. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
