The first poster (via Screen Rant) of Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs” has been released. The black and white poster features names of the cast of the film, including Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogan and Jeff Daniels. Fassbender, who has been cast as Jobs, can be seen in the corner of the poster. He is dressed in a jeans and a high neck t-shirt, and appears to be in a pensive mood. The title of the film reads as “Steve Jobs.”
The first official trailer of the film has already been released. The film has been written by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, and is being considered a major award contender for 2016.
According to Screen Crush, Boyle and Sorkin have developed the film in three acts and each act will show the launch of an Apple product. The film is reportedly different from typical biopic film.
“The Steve Jobs rehearsal process was unlike anything I’ve ever done to this point and probably unlike anything I’ll ever do again. Aaron Sorkin wrote it very much like a three-act play, and each act was a launch of a new product," Michael Stuhlbarg, who plays Apple Macintosh employee Andy Hertzfeldt, told Collider, while speaking about the film’s shoot.
Stuhlbarg also said that while shooting, Sorkin was constantly refining the scenes. He added that “specificity of the film is insane.”
Sorkin has based the film on Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs. The plotline of the film is being kept under the wraps, but, according to official website of the film, “Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.”
The film is set to premiere at New York Film Festival on Oct. 3, 2015. It is set to hit theaters on Oct.9, 2015.
