Steve Jobs movie: First look at Michael Fassbender as late Apple CEO in first teaser trailer.

Danny Boyle’s long-awaited Steve Jobs biopic has finally got off the ground, with a short trailer offering the first look at Michael Fassbender as the late Apple co-founder.

It’s had something of a tortuous development process, having originally been meant for the directing hands of David Fincher and Sony, but the aptly-named “Steve Jobs” biopic now has its first trailer. The Shame actor stars in the lead alongside Seth Rogen as his right-hand man Steve Wozniak, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley and Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing chief Joanna Hoffman. Seth Rogen features in the 57-second clip as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, while a bespectacled Kate Winslet stars as original Mac team member Joanna Hoffman.

Due in UK cinemas 13 November next year, Steve Jobs follows the modern day genius’ life and working relationships through three of his biggest product launches, starting with the iMac in 1998. “The musicians play the instruments, I play the orchestra,” Fassbender says in the minute-long teaser, wearing Jobs’ trademark round glasses but otherwise not looking much like him. “I sat in a garage and invented the future.” Jobs co-founded Apple in the late Seventies before being forced out in the Eighties, only to return as CEO and launch the hugely successful iPod and iPhone. The motion picture is said to feature late Apple co-founder Jobs – who died aged 56 in October 2011 – in every scene as it depicts three backstage scenes in real-time from his famous product launch talks. The screen begins moving in from the sides, slowly closing in on Jobs until just a white cursor on a black background is left from which “steve jobs” is written.

Universal is producing the movie with a script by The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin after Sony Pictures abandoned it following a string of setbacks, revealed during the company’s email system hack. The film also features Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team. Last year’s cyber-attack saw Leonardo DiCaprio’s “horrible behaviour” branded “actually despicable” after he pulled out of playing Jobs, while David Fincher also left as director. But we won’t spoil the movie… As a teaser it does a pretty good job of revealing very little about the plot, though we do know that the movie is set around three key Apple live events – ending with the 1998 launch of the iMac – with flashbacks to other key points in Jobs’ tempestuous first spell as Apple chief, his departure in 1985 and then triumphant return in the 1990s. Steve Jobs hits cinemas on October 9 – right in the middle of Apple’s annual iPhone and iPad live events that take place in September and October respectively.
