Michael Fassbender shines in new trailer for Steve Jobs biopic

Just in time for the launch of Apple Music, a new trailer has been released for the anticipated Steve Jobs biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle.

While the first trailer was a mere teaser that met some criticism for what seemed to be little more than dramatic shots of Michael Fassbender in a turtle neck and rimless glasses, the latest trailer expands on the original in spades, revealing a taste of the witty dialog for which Sorkin (Newsroom, The West Wing, Social Network) is so famous.

In the two or so minutes of preview, we see much more of the people who surrounded the late CEO and co-founder of Apple. Along with Fassbender as Jobs, the film stars Seth Rogen as Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, an original member of the team.

Based on the trailer, Steve Jobs has overcome its early production setbacks and casting changes, and come together as a captivating look at a segment of the tech visionary’s life. Starting in the now-famous garage where Apple was born and ending with 1998’s debut of the iMac, the movie itself takes place over the course of three iconic products. The new preview highlights the complicated genius of Jobs, showing his unique vision, yet also touching on his ability to alienate people, the ups and downs of his career, and his complicated family life. He’s shown pushing his team to the limits, inspiring crowds, and exclaiming that his daughter isn’t his — all as an orchestra soundtrack adds to the intensity.

Sorkin based the screenplay on Walter Isaacson’s 2011 Steve Jobs biography. Jobs’ life has clearly been fascinating to the public over the years, inspiring multiple biographies, articles, and even films. 2013’s JOBS brought the tech innovator’s life to the big screen as well, with Ashton Kutcher playing the title character, though that film was largely panned by critics.

Steve Jobs is set to hit theaters Friday, October 9, 2015.
