First ever Steve Jobs movie gets red carpet premiere
January 26 , 2013
The first ever movie about Apple's legendary co-founder, Steve Jobs, got a warm reception at its world premiere on Friday, just fifteen months after his death. The movie starring actor Ashton Kutcher as the tech and computer entrepreneur, who revolutionized the way people listen to music and built Apple Inc into an international powerhouse, got a red carpet roll-out at the Sundance Film Festival before hitting the U.S. theaters on April 19, 2013. It’s the first of two U.S. feature films about Steve Jobs, who died in 2011 at age of 56. "Everybody has their own opinion about Steve Jobs, and they have something invested in a different part of his story. So the challenge is to decide what part of his story to tell, and not disenfranchise anybody," said director Josh Stern.
