The Star Wars movies have always been very straightforward tales of good versus evil, of light versus dark, of plucky young farm boys versus cyborgs and old men with electricity powers. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is how it looks to reinvent this dynamic. The bad guys aren’t so easily defined this time around. At least that’s what director J.J. Abrams keeps on telling us.

Steve Jobs isn’t following the typical biopic formula — director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin constructed the film in three acts to mirror the launch of three iconic Apple products. As such, it will hopefully offer riveting glimpses into the life of the Apple co-founder and CEO. But the format of the film isn’t the only unconventional aspect of production. According to co-star Michael Stuhlbarg, Boyle and Sorkin had a very interesting and somewhat unusual approach to shooting the film.
