Steve Jobs Movie Trailer Has Been Released. Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs (2015) movie trailer stars Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen. Steve Jobs‘ plot synopsis: “Follows the life and legacy of Steve Jobs.”
I have been eagerly anticipating this film for several years now. This was originally intended to be a David Fincher project, with Christian Bale as the eponymous anti-hero. Aaron Sorkin is the only member of that initial team to have survived the transition (writing the script usually helps). Regarding the narrative, the film is supposedly comprised of three major keynotes and surrounding events (I’m sure we’ll get some flashbacks here, as well). This would sound like a gimmick, if Sorkin hadn’t proven himself time and time again to be a majorly talented, innovative screenwriter when paired with the right director (I’m still mulling over how perfect The Social Network is, for example).
According to Screencrush,
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.
My initial hesitance at handing the role of Jobs over to Fassbender might still be a well founded one, but to be honest, I am completely sold on this entire film. Once again, I’m able to plop unto a theater seat on my birthday for a well-crafted Sorkin film with a solid, sleek, directorial finish. And though Bale might have been a better choice – those days are long gone, now. That casting is just a piece of trivia forevermore, and what we have instead is something that deserves our attention far more. Yes, Fassbender’s accent sounds Irish, at times, and yes, he’s an adonis compared to the man he’s meant to portray. But these are not the most important cogs of the machine. We’re not faking found footage of Steve Jobs here – we’re telling a story. Did you know that Val Kilmer isn’t actually Jim Morrison? This is a far-cry from John Wayne playing Genghis Khan, for example. A white man is playing a white man – I don’t see any suspension of disbelief issues here, provided the script is solid and the direction propels us along.
In any case – Danny Boyle is back, and he looks to have restrained his kinetic/frenetic/stylized flourishes of late, from what I can tell, and I’m glad he’s adapted to this story. He’s an extremely intelligent director, and fortunately understands when to use which tool. Either way, I’m glad to see him take on a more traditional story than, say, Trance, or Slumdog Millionaire. This film revolves around dialogue, relationships, and language. And I can’t wait to watch it.
