Ashton Kutcher takes on the role of a lifetime in JOBS, and we have your first look at the movie.
In the clip, Jobs (played by Ashton Kutcher) is raving about the operating system that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad) created. While Jobs is certain that this will become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption, Wozniak needs convincing.
"Nobody wants to buy a computer," says Wozniak.
"How does somebody know what they want if they've never even seen it?" Jobs replies.
Steve Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 56 in October 2011 and as April 2013 marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Company, Open Road Films has decided to release JOBS on April 19.
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001, according to a press release.
JOBS also co-stars Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
