You may not be crazy about Ashton Kutcher (and/or want to see him launched into deep space with nary a hope of return to Earth), but he might just pull it off.
The first footage from “jOBS” hit the Internet on Thursday via ETonline, giving viewers a peek of actors Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.
The clip shows Kutcher (as Jobs) excitedly attempting to convey to Gad (as Wozniak) how important the Wozniak’s nascent operating system is.
Gad’s Woz remains unconvinced, thinking that “nobody wants to buy a computer.” But Kutcher’s Jobs remains the visionary, asking, “How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?”
“jOBS” will hit theaters on April 19, coinciding with Apple’s 37th anniversary. The film will cover 30 years of Jobs’ life, from 1971 to 2000. “jOBS” is one of two forthcoming films focused on the late Apple cofounder. The other is a big-budget, Sony-backed picture penned by award-winning scribe Aaron Sorkin and based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
