A $10,000,000 big screen production about the life of Steve Jobs, portrayed by Ashton Kutcher. See photos below, comparing the two.
The movie jOBS follows Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher) from the enthusiasm and self-discovery of his youth through his darkest days, brightest triumphs, and the ultimate power of his drive, his passions, and his undying will to change everything the world thought possible. “jOBS” plunges into the depths of Steve Jobs’ character, uncovering his driving motivations, his gifts, his flaws, his failures, and his ultimate successes.
2012 and 2013 have been bad for the company that Steve Jobs turned into the most valuable in the world. Apple’s stock has failed to continue on in the way that Steve Jobs envisioned the company.
In January 2013 the price of Apple stock fell to $439 a share, from an all time high in September of 2012 of $705 a share. Without Steve Jobs, Apple is caving in.
Originally scheduled for a mid-April 2013 release, after poor test screenings, the movie studio, Open Road Films, (jointly owned by Regal Cinemas and AMC Theaters), pushed back the film’s release date to mid-August 2013.
