    First clip of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

    ETonline has posted the first clip of Ashton Kutcher as the iconic Steve Jobs in the upcoming independent bio-pic JOBS, that made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is scheduled to open at cinemas in the U.S. in April, marking the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computers Company.

    The film looks at the life of Jobs from 1971 to 2000 covering his time at Apple, NeXT  and Pixar.

    In the clip below, Jobs (Kutcher) is trying hard to convince Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) that the  operating system he has created can give people the ‘freedom to create and do and build as artists’.

    Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, Kutcher and Gad will be joined by actors Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine.

    Following the release of the clip, Wozniak told Gizmodo that he  “never had such interaction and roles” with Jobs and that it was he who recognised the value of the machines and its potential for mass consumption.

    He says that “don’t forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn’t around and didn’t attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.”

    Very interesting. Let us know your thoughts on what you have seen so far.

      The clip seems interesting but it’s irritating when such license is taken with the facts (as with Wozniak disagreeing on whom was trying to pursuade who). Social Network was another one, and it was based on a book where the author openly admitted to only partially basing it on facts, the rest just kind of making it up. So you learn a whole lot of rubbish about real people.
