Here’s your first look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

Here’s the First Trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs Biopic, Starring Michael Fassbender.

The first trailer for the highly anticipated Danny Boyle-directed flick features Michael Fassbender in the title role, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as original Mac team member Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. “The two most significant events of the 20th century: the Allies win the war, and this,” says Fassbender as Jobs, when referring to the 1984 launch of the Macintosh. “I sat in a garage and invented the future, because artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands.” Aaron Sorkin, best known for recent hits “The Social Network” and “Moneyball,” wrote the screenplay, which features three distinct important moments from Jobs’ career: the debuts of the Macintosh, the NeXT (in 1988) and the iMac (1998). We’ve all moved on from Ashton Kutcher’s ill-fated attempt at playing Apple visionary Steve Jobs, and now our focus has (happily) shifted to Michael Fassbender’s take on the role.Universal Pictures’ Steve Jobs biopic had quite the casting shuffle in its early stages, but it looks like Michael Fassbender was the perfect choice to portray Apple’s late co-founder on the big screen. Several actors, including Noah Wyle, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper, were all considered for the role before Fassbender was agreed upon.

The Sorkin-Boyle version of Jobs’ life on film is going to be dialogue-heavy, so much of the trailer is voiceover, giving us a preview of Fassbender’s handling of the late tech giant’s nasally voice. As for the lead, Fassbender’s resume includes “12 Years a Slave” and “Inglourious Basterds,” while Ashton Kutcher can boast of “Dude, Where’s My Car” and “Two and a Half Men.” To be fair, even as “Jobs,” the 2013 movie, was mostly panned by critics, Kutcher’s performance as the tech visionary was given a warmer reception. And while this next Jobs flick is getting the “well, it can’t be any worse” treatment by the virtual peanut gallery, many across cyberspace are giving the early nod to Kutcher in terms of appearance, if nothing else.
