The world premiere of "jOBS," the independent biopic that tells the story of the early days of Apple founder Steve Jobs, is scheduled for later this week at the Sundance Film Festival. Now, the first public footage of the movie has been released.
The clip, which premiered on Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday and was later uploaded to YouTube, shows actor Ashton Kutcher as the late Jobs in argument with Apple's other co-founder Steve Wozniak, played by Josh Gad. The chat takes place in the parking garage of HP, where both Jobs and Wozniak first met in 1970.
The clip shows Jobs arguing with Wozniak over the use of Wozniak's "operating system" which Jobs says will give PC programmers "freedom" to do what they want. Wozniak doesn't appear to be convinced.
"jOBS" is now slated for an April 19 release in U.S. theaters through Open Road Films. In a interview on the Entertainment Weekly website, Gad states he did a lot of research on his own to portray Wozniak, saying, "You could do the vocal affectations, but what was most important to me was telling the story. It’s telling his version of the story as best I’m able to do it."
