Playing Michael Fassbender Portrays a Smug Steve Jobs in First Trailer for Highly Anticipated Biopic

What do you get when you add Michael Fassbender, the Oscar-winning director of Slumdog Millionaire Danny Boyle, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Social Network Aaron Sorkin and a supporting cast made up of some of Hollywood's most revered talents?

You get what looks like could be the greatest biopic ever made.

In this mind-blowing first full trailer for the upcoming Steve Jobs, we learn two very important things: First, Fassbender somehow manages to look like Jobs' (much more handsome) twin brother.

Second, Jobs' wasn't exactly the most likeable guy in the world.

To set itself apart from 2013's Jobs, which was a more reverent account of the life and career of the Macintosh mogul, Steve Jobs is running full speed in the other direction, spending two and a half minutes stressing the fact that Jobs wasn't necessarily a hero -- or even a good guy.

"What do you do?" asks Seth Rogen as Jobs' former partner Steve Wozniak at the opening of the epic trailer. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do?"

And with all the smugness one human being can muster, Jobs replies, "Musicians play their instruments. I play the orchestra."

And with that, Steve Jobs sets the tone for exactly what kind of complex and complicated biopic it's going to be, and we can't wait.

The film also stars Oscar winner Kate Winslet and The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels. Steve Jobs hits theaters October 9.
