“‘Steve Jobs,’ the dramatic, fictionalized depiction of Apple’s cofounder written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Michael Fassbender, has flopped on its national release, bringing in just $7.3 million for a film that cost $30 million to make,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.

“The movie previously opened to the highest per-theater average of the year in a limited release involving just three theaters in New York City and Los Angeles, resulting in some predictions that the movie might bring in as much as $19 million over its opening weekend,” Dilger reports. “However, outside of key urban audiences, the film failed to attract interest across the 2,000 theaters showing it this weekend.”

Dilger reports, “The controversial bio pic has drawn significant criticism from Apple executives—and other tech industry luminaries who were close to Jobs, including Walt Mossberg—as being inaccurate and failing to capture the real identity of the man who had such a profound impact on consumer technology across many decades.”
