Michael Fassbender is portraying Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s new movie about the late Apple co-founder, the film trailer has revealed.
Michael Fassbender is seen wearing Steve Jobs’ trademark glasses and black polar neck in scenes recreating one of his famous product launches.
The biopic, called Steve Jobs, reportedly uses three such launches to probe the Apple co-founder’s life and relationships with colleagues.
Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen also appear in the biopic, out on November 13.
“The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra,” Michael Fassbender is heard saying cryptically in the minute-long promo.
“I sat in a garage and invented the future… because artists lead, and hacks ask for a show of hands.”
“No one sees the world the same way you do,” actor Jeff Daniels is also heard saying in his role as John Sculley, Apple’s former CEO.
Steve Jobs co-founded Apple in the late 1970s but was driven out of the company in a boardroom coup in the 1980s.
He was later bought back and spearheaded the production of the highly successful iPod and iPhone, before dying of pancreatic cancer in 2011.
Written by Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network and The West Wing fame, Steve Jobs is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late entrepreneur.
An earlier Steve Jobs biopic, starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role and Matthew Modine as John Sculley, met with a tepid response in 2013.
