Kutcher’s ‘jOBS’ biopic hits theaters April 19 – video

Jobs implores Woz to share his operating system

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ashton Kutcher’s “jOBS” movie will hit theaters on April 19, following the film’s world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25th. The movie will follow Steve’s career from 1971 to 2000.

Entertainment Weekly has posted a brief clip of Kutcher as Jobs and Josh Gad as Woz. In the scene, Jobs reacts to an operating system that Woz has created while the duo walks through the parking lot of Hewlett Packard.

Ashton Kutcher jOBS biopic gets April release date


jOBS,” the Steve Jobs biopic staring Ashton Kutcher as Apple’s late CEO, will hit theaters in April. The Wall Street Journal notes:

“The new film, ‘jOBS,’ starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, will be released in April, Open Road Films and Five Star Feature films announced Thursday.”

I’m eager to see this movie. Equally compelling is that fact that another Jobs biopic is in production. It should be fun to compare and contrast the two.

Several photos of Kutcher dressed as Jobs have emerged, and you can’t deny the resemblance. Here are a few I found this evening.

I’m glad Steve’s sweater vest phase didn’t last long. jOBS also stars Matthew Modine as Apple CEO John Scully, Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, Ahna O’Reilly as Chris-Ann Brennan, ex-girlfriend and mother to Jobs’ daughter Lisa, and J.K. Simmons as Venture capitalist Arthur Rock. The movie will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

I’m so eager to see this movie. Equally compelling is that fact that another Jobs biopic is in production. It will be interesting to see the similarities, differences and critical reaction to each.
