First trailer for Danny Boyle’s Oscar-tipped Steve Jobs biopic arrives.

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.The debut trailer for Danny Boyle’s long-gestating biopic of Steve Jobs has hit the web, powering up our first glimpse of Michael Fassbender as the late Apple tech guru. The German-Irish actor is seen in full briefly at the end of the trailer, receiving applause from the crowd at a product launch – expected to be the 1998 unveiling of the first iMac. The clip also provides a brief glimpse of Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh, plus Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley.

Because artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands.” That’s Michael Fassbender playing Steve Jobs in the first trailer for the upcoming biopic about the Apple AAPL, +0.92% founder. 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. And while we get to see Fassbender in the iconic jeans and black turtleneck gearing up to address a cheering audience of tech fans, we’re left eagerly awaiting what it is he actually has to say.

Sorkin, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Sony’s The Social Network, has previously said he envisages a biopic comprised of just three scenes, each shot in real time and taking place just before a vital product launch. Steve Jobs is due for release on 9 October in the US, four days after the fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death of cancer, timing which suggests a tilt at the 2016 Oscars.
