The teaser trailer for “Steve Jobs” directed by Danny Boyle and starring Michael Fassbender in the titular role, is out. For those of you who haven’t already checked it out, here it is
Now, I’ll be honest, but I do not understand why the earlier biopic, based on this great icon, was panned so much. I guess people don’t like Ashton Kutcher as much, considering I haven’t seen him much I will refrain from commenting on that, but that’s the only reason I see to hate it. Otherwise, it was a well made film.
Now this one, titled, “Steve Jobs” is surely going to be bigger and better. Acclaimed Academy Award Winning Director, Danny Boyle, with a cast consisting of Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels, we can expect this to be a block buster.
The teaser trailer surely lives up to these expectations, though not much except of Jobs’ look is given away. Although Fassbender doesn’t resemble Jobs much I doubt that actually matters, at least for me. I mean, look at Frank Abagnale Jr. or Jordan Belfort, they don’t exactly resemble Leonardo di Caprio, but the films “Catch Me If You Can” and “The Wolf of The Wall Street” turned out to be brilliant.
Another interesting point, to be noted, is that the screenplay, is by Aaron Sorkin who is a genius in this arena. He has previously given the screenplay for great films, such as Moneyball, A Few Good Men, and something in the teach-biopic arena too, with David Fincher’s The Social Network. This film shall be based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late genius and having read the book, it further cements my faith in this film. The book offers a great insight, into the life of Steve Jobs, and moved my mind, from revering him as a tech guru, to admiring his genius as a businessman.
All in all, I simply cannot wait for this film to release, and the teaser trailer just makes me drool.
