‘jOBS’ biopic with Ashton Kutcher set for nationwide premiere on April 19th
The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher is set to make its nationwide movie theater premier on April 19 according to The Hollywood Reporter. It also claims that the date of release coincides with the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple however that date appears to be incorrect as it is widely thought that Apple was founded on April 1 1976.
The Steve Jobs biopic jOBS, starring Ashton Kutcher, will open in theaters April 19, the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer. The biopic, directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whitely, chronicles Jobs' ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered entrepreneurs of the 20th century. Part of the film was shot in the historic garage where Jobs first set up shop at his family's home in Palo Alto, Calif.
If April is too long to wait to see the film, it will also be shown on the closing night at The Sundance Film Festival in Utah on January 27; we are sure that there will be many reviews after that screening to whet your appetite. Also Kutcher will be joined by Josh Gad at the opening keynote at this year’s Macworld where we will be on the ground to bring you all the latest news. Expect to see a lot more of Kutcher as the release date gets nearer with the obligatory TV chat show appearances to hype up the film.
