First Video Teaser of Ashton Kutcher in New JOBS Biopic [VIDEO]

Share:

Earlier this morning we noted the Steve Jobs biopic led by Ashton Kutcher, JOBS, is set to hit theatres on April 19th. Now, the first video clip of the movie has made its way online over at ETonline, as first noted by MacRumors. The clip shows Kutcher as Steve Jobs and fellow co-star Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak discussing the future of computers.

Check out the clip below (ETonline Flash video BTW):

For some reason…no matter what role Ashton Kutcher plays I can’t take the guy seriously. All I see is Michael Kelso from That ’70s Show.

Interestingly, the movie’s title is now spelt in all capital letters for marketing purposes, whereas previously the first letter was a lowercase ‘j’.

JOBS will close out the Sundance Film Festival this weekend, so expect more clips and leaks to make its way onto the web. Anyone excited to see this?

Update: Steve Wozniak responds in a comment over at Gizmodo regarding the scene from above. He says it never happened:

Not close…we never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer…don’t forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn’t around and didn’t attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.

  • Of course it never happened, Woz was probably not to forthcoming with info for this movie. I believe the same things were said about Pirates of Silicone Valley. The point of a biopic is not to frame for frame reproduce actual events (that would be boring) its to take the overall idea and place it into a medium where it can be viewed and be entertaining. Its art meeting fact. If it was just fact they would be showing it to 6th graders in history class. That being said Ashton really doesn’t appear to have any of the characteristics of Steve down. Just from this clip it seems to me that Noah Wylie’s steve was more accurate. But I will reserve Judgment until the movie comes out

  • Yeah. Noah Wylie did it much better. I can’t take Ashton seriously.

    A flash movie … On an iPad… Not a good move!

  • It’s not just that it didn’t happen as in those lines weren’t correct or they didn’t have a conversation in a parking garage. I’m reading through the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson right now and not only are the characters off, but I can’t think of what they’d even be talking about, as Woz wasn’t working on any projects that sound like the one Steve is describing. Seems way off to me, based on what I’ve read in Isaacson’s Jobs biography.
