The issues with bringing Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic to the big screen have been well-publicized, with a number of actors dropping out at the last minute and those pesky “Sony Hack” emails making the behind the scenes problems clear. However, despite all of that, the movie has come together pretty damn well if early reviews are anything to go by.
The synopsis reveals that events in Steve Jobs will be “set backstage at three iconic product launches” with the end point set to be “in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.” It adds that “the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.”
The clips above (which run for nearly five minutes), cover those key moments and several others, providing a great look at the movie’s well-publicized Aaron Sorkin dialogue and some very impressive performances.
Steve Jobs stars Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, Mackenzie Moss, Sarah Snook, Andrea Cunningham and Adam Shapiro, and hits theatres on October 23rd.
