Apple CEO Tim Cook attacks Steve Jobs films as ‘opportunistic’ – video.

The buzz keeps building around “Steve Jobs,” the Aaron Sorkin-written, Danny Boyle-directed biopic focusing on three major time periods in the Apple chief’s life.

Following a successful debut at this year’s Telluride Film Festival, Universal has released a new trailer for Steve Jobs, Danny Boyle’s forthcoming film about the late Apple co-founder. “What if the computer was a beautiful object, something you want to look at and have in your home?Apple CEO Tim Cook has described recent attempts to immortalise the late technology guru Steve Jobs on the big screen as “opportunistic” during a high-profile interview on US television.

While the last trailer spent some time exposing us to Seth Rogan’s portrayal of Steve Wozniak, this second trailer is focused almost exclusively in Jobs himself—and the crazy obsessive bastard he could be. Speaking on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Cook said he did not recognise what the host described as ‘unflattering’ portraits of his predecessor in the forthcoming Danny Boyle biopic Steve Jobs, nor the documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, which is due for a limited release in US cinemas this weekend and hit online formats earlier this month. “The Steve I knew was an amazing human being. The lighting, the music the Aaron Sorkin script, and the Danny Boyle direction all add up to a trailer that’s giving me chills even after watching it a few times.

The Hollywood Reporter suggested the Oscar-tipped biopic, based on a screenplay by The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin, presented a vision of a “difficult and withholding man, one famous for abusing his underlings, keeping them guessing about where they stand and rejecting their ideas only to later claim them as his own”. Cook’s position on Steve Jobs stands in marked contrast to that of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who acted as a consultant on the biopic. “My impression was I was shocked and amazed at how good it was in the sense of professional film-making,” he told the BBC. “I usually go to a movie not looking for ‘do I like the story’ as much as: ‘What is the quality that came out of the heads of the people that made it?’” “In this case the film-makers have done an award-winning job. In some prior movies, I saw [the actors] simulating Steve Jobs, but they didn’t really make me feel like I was in his head understanding what was going on inside of him – his personality.
