There's a pretty decent chance that you're reading this very article from an iPhone or an iPad or some other gadget or gizmo whose origin can be directly linked to the seeds Steve Jobs and his Apple co-founders Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne planted over in Silicon Valley so many years ago. It's quite fitting if you are, really.
Today, the rather gutting first trailer for "Jobs" debuted at Yahoo! Movies, and in addition to confirming what we already knew about the uncanny resemblance between Ashton Kutcher and the late entrepreneur, the trailer packs quite a punch about what we can expect to learn of Jobs' journey to the top of the world.
Beginning with the company's inception — including a comical car chat about what to title the to-be global empire — and building all the way up to that iconic moment when a turtleneck-clad Jobs stood before a crowd which excitedly hung onto his every word about the company's latest innovation just a few short months before his tragic passing, the movie is bound to bring on many, many feels.
Like its kin-in-kind film "The Social Network," the Joshua Michael Stern-directed biopic is poised to present the many ups and downs and right back ups associated with Jobs' long relationship with the company along with his own family and friends.
Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, Lukas Haas, Matthew Modine, Amanda Crew, Lesley Ann Warren and J.K. Simmons also star, but, as the title indicates, the man of the hour in this movie looks to be Kutcher.
"Jobs" will hit theaters on Aug. 16.
