While the first trailer for the big Hollywood Steve Jobs film focused on a lot of Apple’s high notes, this new one, released today, really delves under the hood to look at the grittier, darker side of Jobs.
The highly anticipated film, starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs (there’s Oscar talk already stewing), Seth Rogen as Woz, Kate Winslet as marketing head Joanna Hoffman, and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley, will take the Aaron Sorkin/Danny Boyle fast-paced, fired dialogue approach of looking at the iconic Apple co-founder.
This second trailer shows two of the most controversial aspects of Jobs’ life — his ousting from Apple (which Woz has recently contradicted, saying that Jobs “left”) and his relationship with his first daughter.
It really goes nothing short of Jobs appearing to present himself as the second coming…or at least someone who thinks he’s on par with Leonardo Da Vinci. And how frustrated everyone around him appeared to be.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook told Stephen Colbert earlier this week that while he hadn’t viewed any of the recent films about Jobs, he thinks the practice of making movies about his friend “opportunistic.”
Steve Jobs is out Oct. 9 (limited release) and nationwide Oct. 23.
