The JOBS film will be released to theaters nationwide on August 16 — four months later than expected.
After it prereleased at the Sundance Film festival to ho-hum reviews, Open Road Films delayed the launch ostensibly to do a better job of marketing the film — but possibly also to tighten up the editing and make some adjustments prior to national release.
Last-minute tweaks? That would be a very Jobs-ian thing to do.
The film follows Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak from 1971 to 2001, detailing the rise and fall and rise again of one of America’s business and technology heroes. It stars Ashton Kutcher as Jobs, Dermot Mulroney as Wozniak, and other actors including Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine.
I’m pretty sure all Apple fans will want to see the movie, but others might be tempted as well. After all, in the words of Steve himself:
“How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?”
