'Jobs' biopic delayed; no new release date

The much hyped biopic of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, titled simply Jobs (and previously spelled as jOBS), will take a bit longer getting into movie theaters. The independently financed movie, starring Ashton Kutcher as Jobs, was originally supposed to appear in theaters nationwide on April 19th.

The Hollywood Reporter stated today that Jobs will no longer be released on April 19th, which happens to be the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple Computer. Open Road Films, which is distributing Jobs, apparently felt they needed more time to launch a solid marketing campaign for the biopic, and didn't give a new release date for the film.

So far, the only time the movie has been screened to a public audience was on the last day of the Sundance Film Festival in January. At the time, the early reviews gave good review marks to Kutcher's performance but the movie itself received more mixed responses. The film also stars Josh Gad as Apple's other co-founder Steve Wozniak, along with Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

With the "Ghosting" issues on the retina display , anyone would think Jobs is making a come back lol.

it is only delayed not Canned from being shown did you even read the news about this or did you see it says delayed and assume it will never be shown and the fact it got good reviews on early screenings of it means it may be good despite thew fact some things may be inaccurate

Classic apple! Classic Jobs, Fitting (no disrespect meant, if you feel offended and are not Jobs family or friends, but just an obsessed fan, and took what I said the wrong way.............I hope you stand on a lego brick)

I would much rather wait to see a factually accurate film (since I know the story behind Apple so well). I hope they took notice of Steve Wozniak's comments about it.
