'Steve Jobs' biopic to premiere at Telluride Film Festival on Saturday, Sept. 5

The upcoming and highly anticipated Steve Jobs biopic will be shown for the first time to the public as part of the 42nd annual Telluride Film Festival. The movie, which centers on Apple's late co-founder, played by Michael Fassbender, will be shown at the festival in Telluride, Colorado on Saturday, September 5, with an encore on Sunday, September 6.

If you are wondering why you are just hearing about this event two days before it happens, it's because the organizers of the Telluride Film Festival always reveal its schedule at the last minute. The show will also host a special tribute to the director of "Steve Jobs", Danny Boyle, just before the movie's premiere.

The movie was written by Aaron Sorkin, and is based on the biography of Apple's co-founder by Walter Isaacson. Along with Fassbender, "Steve Jobs" also features Seth Rogen as Apple's other co-founder Steve Wozniak, along with Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as John Sculley. The Universal movie will open in theaters nationwide on October 9.
