Ashton-Kutcher-in-jOBSMaking its world premiere at Sundance tomorrow, jOBS chronicles the life of the late Steve Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher as the world-renowned co-founder of Apple.

We got our first look at Kutcher in the lead late last year, and followed it up last week with two new images, giving us our first official look at co-star Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak. And just before its premiere out in Park City, ET have given us the first clip from the film.

“In 1976, college dropout Steve Jobs heralded a revolution within the confines of his parents’ garage. Jobs, along with friend and technical wizard Steve Wozniak, unleashed the “homebrew” Apple 1 personal computer kit onto an unsuspecting public, producing 200 units by hand and shipping each one themselves (monitor and keyboard not included). Apple Inc. was born, and the world would never be the same. Today hundreds of millions of users around the world remain tethered to the remarkable products that Jobs championed—his impact on the world of technology was undoubtedly colossal, but his effect on our culture was simply immeasurable.”

Kutcher and Gad are joined by an excellent supporting cast, headed up by Dermot Mulroney (The Grey), James Woods (The Virgin Suicides), Lukas Haas (Inception), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises), and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man).

Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote) is at the helm, with newcomer Matt Whiteley making his screenwriting debut penning the script.

jOBS will be premiering out in Park City tomorrow, with Open Road announcing the US release date for 19th April. No confirmation yet on when we can expect it in the UK, but we’re hoping it will be coming sooner rather than later. Here’s the first clip to give you an idea of what to expect.


Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
