Apple introduced the iMac computer to the market with one of the most famous marketing slogans of all time: “Think different.” If nothing else, Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs embodies that sentiment.
We weren’t sure what to think about Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic after the first trailer. Yes, it seemed dramatic and fascinating, but also highlighted a performance by Michael Fassbender as the former Apple CEO that didn’t really look or sound at all like Steve Jobs. Could the film overcome that hurdle? After the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews — specifically calling out Fassbender’s “enthralling” and “stunning” — it may be time to fully buy in to this project. If you’re left doubting, a brand new trailer has arrived to help convince you.
Danny Boyle has been teasing us with the promise of a Trainspotting sequel for years, to be based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno, itself a sequel to Welsh’s source material for Boyle’s original film. The director has talked up the sequel so much with no actual momentum that it hardly feels like a possibility, but Boyle is at it again, and this time he says the Trainspotting followup is his next movie.
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.
All right, so Steve Jobs has nothing to do with Jobs, the Ashton Kutcher biopic about late Apple cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs — except for the fake that they’re about the same person. The twist, supposedly, for this new Jobs biopic, which is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, is that the whole film is set at and around three different Apple product launches. (Kutcher’s version featured a more traditional biopic structure).
They didn’t have anyone get on a stage in front of a room full of eager nerds to do it, but Universal just announced the official release date for their Steve Jobs biopic ‘Steve Jobs.’ The film will open in theaters on October 9, 2015. Start your...
This week sees the release of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy and Lana Wachowski. And while in all likelihood ‘Jupiter Ascending’ will not go down in history as one of the great works of its genre, the occasion of a new sci-fi epic from two of the modern masters of the form seemed like a good time to assess and celebrate the recent highlights of science fiction cinema, which has taken audiences from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to the deepest recesses of the human mind.
After months of bumps in the road, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic is finally heading into production. Universal has announced ‘Steve Jobs’ as the official and not-very-surprising title for the film, along with a full cast lineup and breakdown, as well as the official plot. It’s all happening.
According to my calculations, it’s been 146 months since the initial U.K. release of ‘28 Days Later,’ Danny Boyle and Alex Garland’s rightfully acclaimed zombie movie about the aftermath of a terrible virus unleashed in the middle of London. The film is credited with helping revitalize the zombie genre (and popularizing zombies who run like the dickens at their victims instead of the classic George Romero shufflers), and it inspired a 2007 sequel, ‘28 Weeks Later.’ There was talk of another sequel, a ‘28 Months Later,’ set a little over two years after the zombie outbreak, but so far, the project hasn’t gotten off the ground (and we’re now about 120 months past the titular date).
After switching from Sony to Universal, the formerly troubled Steve Jobs biopic continues to build its cast lineup. Kate Winslet has been in negotiations to join the cast as the female lead, but she’s no longer alone—following her fantastic breakthrough performance in ‘Inherent Vice,’ Katherine Waterston (yes, daughter of actor Sam Waterston) has been tapped to star in the Jobs film alongside Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen.
