People who get to attend the 53rd New York Film Festival will be able to see the upcoming 'Steve Jobs' biopic on October 3, several days before the highly anticipated movie is released to theaters nationwide on October 9.
'Steve Jobs' was selected as the Centrepiece film of this year's New York Film Festival. The movie was directed by Danny Boyle, who is quoted in the announcement:
"I am honored that our film has been selected as the Centrepiece of this year's festival," said Boyle. "And thrilled and terrified too, unlike the subject of our film, who would have taken the whole thing very much in his stride. Steve Jobs was a thoroughly contradictory and complex character who forged our digital age. He's the kind of brilliant, flawed character that Shakespeare would have relished writing about, and storytellers of all kinds will be fashioning and re-fashioning the mythology of the digital revolution for generations to come. I hope that festivalgoers enjoy our take."
The movie, which was written by Aaron Sorkin, is based on the biography of Apple's co-founder by Walter Isaacson. It features Michael Fassbender playing Jobs, along with Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley.
