Tim Cook talks Steve Jobs movies

If it feels like there’s been a good amount of movies about Steve Jobs since the technology innovator passed away in 2011, that’s because there have been.

iSteve from Funny or Die was first out of the gate in 2013, aiming more for satire and comedy than an accurate portrayal of the Apple co-founder, and then Jobs followed shortly thereafter with Ashton Kutcher in the lead, and it didn’t really do the man justice.

Flash forward to 2015 and we have the documentary The Man in the Machine (available now on VOD and in select theaters) and also Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin‘s forthcoming biopic Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender, which has gotten a lot of positive early buzz.

So what does someone who actually knew the real Steve Jobs think of all these movies? While Jobs’ former right-hand man Steve Wozniak has recently praised Steve Jobs in particular, when current Apple CEO Tim Cook talks Steve Jobs movies with Stephen Colbert, he seems more annoyed than anything.

Trainspotting 2

Director Danny Boyle‘s latest film, the biopic Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender, is getting plenty of early praise after its debut at the Telluride Film Festival this past weekend. And with the film mostly in the can (Telluride hosted a “work-in-progress” screening) and moving towards some potential awards season love, Boyle is already thinking about his next film, and it’s one fans have been wanting for awhile.

Boyle is hoping that he can finally make Trainspotting 2 his next film, but there are certain elements that are out of his hands which may make that a little difficult. Find out more about the long-gestating sequel below! Read More »

Steve Jobs early buzz

The simply titled biopic Steve Jobs premiered at the Telluride Film Festival over the weekend, and the first reviews coming from the mountains of Colorado seem to indicate that we have our first Oscar frontrunner.

Michael Fassbender takes the titular role as the Apple co-creator and tech genius who brought us innovations such as the iPod, iPhone and perhaps most importantly, the first mainstream home computer. The supporting cast is nothing to scoff at either with Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg and more giving plenty more reason to pay attention to this drama.

Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is behind the camera this time with a script by The Social Network scribe Aaron Sorkin driving the whole film. And if the Steve Jobs early buzz from reviews and reactions following the film are any indicator, this team of talent has delivered an intense, powerful, home run of a biopic that finally paints a portrait of Steve Jobs that’s worth hanging on the wall.

Steve Jobs TV Spot

As summer winds down, we’re starting to see glimpses of the movies that will be vying for Golden Globes and Oscars this fall and winter, and one of them is undoubtedly Steve Jobs, which just debuted a new extended TV spot.

The biopic from director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, and goes behind the scenes of how his life’s struggles drove his ambition to make Apple something to be proud of, even to the point of ignoring his own daughter, choosing instead to raise technology as his own.

Steve Jobs Teaser Trailer

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.

28-days-later

Ex Machina director Alex Garland‘s second major film was 28 Days Later, which he wrote for director Danny Boyle. The sequel to that film was only exec produced by Garland, and in general the writer/producer/director hasn’t seemed much interested in making sequels.

But there is talk of another sequel, and as it turns out, if that film does actually shoot the 28 Months Later story will be based on an idea Garland came up with. That’ll be it for him when it comes to that movie, however — Garland won’t be involved in 28 Months Later otherwise. Read More »

Steve Jobs

We know now a lot about the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin written movie, Steve Jobs. We know the cast, we know the structure, but we don’t know what that cast looks like as their real life counterparts. Primarily, Michael Fassbender as Jobs himself.

Universal Pictures has yet to release anything official, but some fans have been able to snap some – admittedly crappy – images of the cast on set. In them, you can not-so-clearly see Fassbender as the icon. See the Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs pics below. Read More »
