If you were waiting to see Ashton Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs in the biopic ‘Jobs’, looks like the wait is going to be a bit longer. According their sources, The Hollywood Reporter says the film has been delayed, to further promote the film, instead of its scheduled opening on April 19th, to coincide with the 37th anniversary of the Mac:
Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that Open Road wanted more time to market the film, which was fully financed and produced by Mark Hulme’s Five Star Feature Films.
The first reviews of the biopic were released near the end of January, with mostly mixed opinions on the movie, after it closed out the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The movie was shot at original locations such as the garage where Apple was founded and the late Steve Jobs’ childhood home. If the film is delayed to the summer, to gain the most traction, it would be competing against blockbusters. Stay tuned.
