Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher release date delayed

“Moviegoers will have to wait a bit longer to see Ashton Kutcher playing Steve Jobs,” Pamela McClintock reports for The Hollywood Reporter.

“Open Road Films is pushing back the release of Jobs, which was scheduled to hit theaters April 19, the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer,” McClintock reports. ” A new date has yet to be determined (the film previously was titled jOBS).”

McClintock reports, “Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that Open Road wanted more time to market the film.”

  1. That POS movie will never be released. I don’t know what the hell these producers were thinking but when I heard Kuntcher and that other idiot portraying the WOZ and saw the preview it was pretty obvious the movie wasn’t going anywhere.

  2. No respect for history. Apple Computer was founded on April 1st (1976), NOT 19th. It was officially incorporated in the following January. (1977)

    I’ll forgive the idiotic date fail, and judge the picture on its merits after I see it, and not condemn it before said viewing, regardless of who stars in the production.

  3. I’m not ready to see another movie about Steve Jobs with long hair.

    A movie about his triumphant return to Apple would be entertaining.

    Seeing the development of the iMac and iPod would be fascinating; watching Pixar’s rise would make for good drama; his huge acquisition of all those Disney shares; and finally a look at his legacy at the Apple campus university and the way new employees are indoctrinated in Steve Jobs’s values.

    Has anyone seen a trailer yet?

    1. With all these movies in the works, I wish someone would make one focusing on the complete story, or at least the more modern times. I too do not need to see more about Mr. Jobs in the 70’s with long hair. All though it has cult appeal, it’s kind of old history. What about all the crazy awesome stuff that isn’t covered in Pirates of Silicon Valley? Basically what you stated above.

  4. What a crappy name. iJOBS. Seriously, Apple never created a single product that had a lower case letter then all upper case letters in the name. Idiots. Does not bode well for the rest of the movie.
    However, I am curious to see what they created.

    1. That is actually the one only thing that annoyed me about this picture (the others I can’t judge before seeing the movie). The name spelling looks like it was typed on Windows with Caps Lock.

    2. Yeah, you’re right… It couldn’t how imagine how brutal the meetings regarding the name must have been. Some executive must have stepped in and gave it the final name, or everyone had to meet in the middle. Either way, that’s how you end up with bad decisions.

      They should have just called it “Steve”.

      I personally don’t like anything outside of an Apple product that starts with “i”. It just automatically seems like a cheap knock off trying to ride the wave Apple created.
