Awesome Steve Jobs trailer gives us fresh look at the biopic before hitting theaters

With Steve Jobs hitting theaters in early October, Universal Pictures has dropped another intriguing trailer to hype the biopic. This time, we get more of the evolution of the tech visionary over time, including his meteoric rise, astounding fall, and unlikely comeback.

The preview kicks off with Steve Jobs (played by Michael Fassbender) in the early days of his career, posing questions that ultimately revolutionized the tech industry and life as we know it. “What if the computer was a beautiful object — something you want to look at and have in your home?” he says. “And what if, instead of it being in the right hands, it was in everyone’s hands?”

We don’t just get a pretty picture of Jobs’ amazing accomplishments, though; the film also portrays the late Apple CEO’s personal and professional struggles. There is perhaps no starker reminder than when Jobs’ ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, Chrisann Brennan (Katherine Waterson), says, “Your Apple stock is worth $441 million, and your daughter and her mother are on welfare.”

With the film covering a period that spans three product launches, the trailer has a lot of ground to cover. Not surprisingly, it moves at a fast pace, which is fitting considering Jobs’ almost surreal career. We see enormous crowds cheering for him (complete with signs), the Apple board voting him out, newscasters calling him a “superstar” as he makes his comeback, and more. Along the way, we also see Fassbender’s character age, transforming from a young, long-haired and scruffy guy to the recognizable man in the turtleneck and glasses.

The film also stars Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Seth Wozniack and Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, an original member of the Macintosh and NeXt teams. Acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin penned the screenplay, basing it on a biography written by Walter Isaacson.

Steve Jobs hits theaters on Friday, Oct. 9. The wait is almost over.
