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

The first teaser trailer for Steve Jobs, the new biopic about the Apple CEO, is light on detail, but heavy on style: Jobs (played in this incarnation by Michael Fassbender, in a major upgrade from the previous biopic’s Ashton Kutcher) stands on an empty stage, staring out as disembodied voices argue about Jobs’ rise and legacy. “No one sees the world the same way you do,” a voice says before the trailer cuts to raucous applause from a full house, cameras flashing.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.

The first trailer from Universal’s Steve Jobs, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, hit the Interwebs Sunday and it looks … intense. Seth Rogen will star as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, with Kate Winslet playing Joanna Hoffman (an original member of the Macintosh developer team), and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. 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.

But we do see Michael Fassbender as Jobs, complete with black turtleneck and glasses, on stage at an Apple event, and hear him defending his role as a visionary. 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.
