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.

Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) will direct The Snowman, from the novel by Jo Nesbo. The film, once set as a possible Martin Scorsese film, has been in development for a few years, but now it may have a bit of new momentum. That’s because Michael Fassbender is now in talks to play the lead role, a detective who follows the disappearance of one woman to discover Norway’s first serial killer. Read More »
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.
