    'JOBS' Movie Clip 'Totally Wrong', Says Steve Wozniak



    The interaction between Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak shown in the first scene to be released from the biopic JOBS, due to appear in theaters April 19, is 'totally wrong' according to an email Wozniak sent to Gizmodo.

    Totally wrong. Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn’t start talking about this great social impact. His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people at the club build the computer I’d given away … Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.

    Wozniak says that 'the lofty talk came much further down the line' after Jobs started to see more about the likely social impact of personal computers.

    Ashton Kutcher Was Hospitalized After Following Steve Jobs’ Crazy Fruit Diet


    Even though many people idolize Steve Jobs and the role he played in the tech industry, his dietary habits are not for the faint of heart.

    While preparing to play Steve Jobs in his new movie JOBS, Ashton Kutcher decided he should try to walk, talk and even eat like Steve Jobs to fully embrace the role. It sounds like a good idea, except following Steve Jobs’ diet gave Kutcher’s pancreas all sorts of problems and he wound up in the hospital two days before the movie started.

    Steve Jobs was a known fruitarian who, in his younger years, believed that if he only ate apples his body wouldn’t produce body odor. Ashton followed Steve and only ate fruit, nuts and seeds for a few weeks, but then his pancreas went crazy on him and he was hospitalized.

    Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in October 2011.

    In an interview with USA Today, Kutcher told the publication:

    “First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues. I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was like doubled over in pain.

    “My pancreas levels were completely out of whack. It was really terrifying … considering everything.”

    Kutcher recovered from his pancreatic problems and was able to finish filming the movie, which is set to be released in April. JOBS premiered at the Sundance Film Festival Friday night to mixed reviews, but most were impressed with Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs.

    Wozniak Turned Down Involvement in “jOBS” Due to “Crap” Script



    The independent biopic jOBS, which premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival, was not produced with the help of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak due to a highly inaccurate script which Mr. Wozniak described to The Verge as “crap.” Mr. Wozniak previously told Gizmodo that an interaction between Steve Jobs and Mr. Wozniak depicted in the film’s first pre-release promotional scene was “totally wrong.”

    JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad as Mr. Jobs and Mr. Wozniak, respectively, and opened to mixed reviews over the weekend. While most reviewers found the story entertaining overall, historical inaccuracies and a “shallow” approach left many disappointed with the first film about Apple and Steve Jobs since his death in 2011.

    That disappointment was shared by Mr. Wozniak, who was approached by the film’s producers early in the development of the movie. Finding the film’s script to be “crap,” however, Mr. Wozniak turned down the producers’ offer and instead became involved in the Sony-backed and Aaron Sorkin-directed film about Steve Jobs that is still in production.

    I was approached early on [for JOBS]. I read a script as far as I could stomach it and felt it was crap. The Sony people got in contact with me too and in the end I went with them. You can't do both [films] and be paid.
    Although not involved in the film’s production and not happy with some of the liberties taken in the script, Mr. Wozniak still wished the film well. “I still told everyone that I thought the Jobs movie would be a big hit and I looked forward to it. I felt they did a very good job of casting, looking for good actors who could play the roles,” he told The Verge.

    For those not able to attend the Sundance Film Festival, the producers of jOBS announced early this month that the film will have a broader release in theaters this April.

    The Sony-backed film about the Apple co-founder does not yet have a release date but will take a very different approach to portraying Steve Jobs's life and career . Mr. Sorkin revealed in November that the film will feature three key scenes – the launch of the original Macintosh, the debut of NeXT, and the introduction of the first iPod – as described by Walter Isaacson’s biography of Mr. Jobs.

    UPDATE 2-First Steve Jobs movie gets red carpet premiere



    * Ashton Kutcher says honored but terrified to play Jobs

    * 'jOBS' traces 30 defining years of late Apple chairman

    * Received applause from audience after premiere


    PARK CITY, Utah, Jan 25 (Reuters) - The first movie about Apple's legendary co-founder got a warm reception at its world premiere on Friday, just 15 months after Steve Jobs' death.

    "jOBS," starring "Two and a Half Men" 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 ahead of hitting U.S. theaters on April 19.

    "jOBS' chronicles 30 defining years of the late Apple chairman, from an experimental youth to the man in charge of one of the world's most recognized brands. It is the first of two U.S. feature films about Jobs, who died in 2011 at age 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," director Josh Stern told Reuters ahead of the screening.

    "Hazarding a guess and venturing into too much speculation is always dangerous, especially with a character who is so well-known," Stern added.

    The film, co-starring Josh Gad and Dermot Mulroney, begins with Jobs the dreamer, the poet and the occasional drug user in college, and his initial ideas for Apple Computers, before his vision took on a life of its own.

    Much of the drama is based around the early 1980s, and Jobs' ideologies for the Apple Lisa and Macintosh computers, which ended up performing poorly for the company and led to Jobs being fired.

    Kutcher's Jobs is seen as the rock star of the tech world, admired but misunderstood in his early days as he constantly tried to think outside of the box and bring a notion of "cool" to his brand.

    The audience on Friday warmly applauded the film following the screening.

    In a question-and-answer session after the screening, Kutcher took to the stage to talk about his preparations of mastering Jobs' posture, hand gestures and eccentricities, saying his "painstaking research" included watching more than 100 hours of footage of the Apple innovator.

    Notably missing from the film are details about Jobs' personal life - his court settlement with the mother of his first child features only in the backdrop of the 1980s, a time when he struggled to gain support from the Apple board for his visions.

    Stern told the audience that he deliberately stayed away from the CEO's personal life, saying the film was "not about getting mired in some of the soap opera" of Jobs' life.

    Kutcher, 34, told Reuters on the red carpet before the screening that he was honored to play Jobs but also terrified because of the former Apple chairman's iconic status.

    "To be playing a guy who so freshly is in people's minds, where everywhere you go you can run into people who met him or knew him or had seen a video of him ... that's terrifying because everyone is an appropriate critic," Kutcher told Reuters.

    WRONG PERSONALITIES

    Hours before the screening, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said the movie appeared to misrepresent aspects of both his own and Jobs' personalities and their early vision for the company.

    Wozniak was commenting after seeing a brief clip of an early scene that was released online on Thursday.

    "Totally wrong. ... The ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs," Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Jobs and Ronald Wayne in a California garage in 1976, told technology blog Gizmodo.com.

    "The lofty talk came much further down the line," Wozniak said in a series of emails.

    "Book of Mormon" star Gad, who plays Wozniak, told Reuters on Friday's red carpet that the filmmakers had tried to reach out to him to get his input on "jOBS," but that Wozniak was "participating in another project about Steve Jobs."

    Wozniak is tied to a movie based on Walter Isaacson's official biography "Steve Jobs," being developed by screen writer Aaron Sorkin of "The West Wing" and "The Social Network" fame. No release date or casting has been announced.

    Kutcher said he hoped Wozniak would look more kindly on the movie when he had seen the whole two hours.

    "I hope that when he sees the film, he feels that he was portrayed accurately, that the film accurately represents who he was and how he was, and more importantly, inspires people to go and build things," he said.

    Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ Film Delayed, No New Date Announced


    The Steve Jobs biographical film,”jobs,” starring Ashton Kutcher, has been delayed. Originally set for an April 19th release, the distributor, Open Road, feels like it hasn’t been able to create enough buzz for the flick before this date.

    There’s no new release date announced, either, though it’s fairly atypical for a distribution house not to set a new one when the orignal date is delayed. We can only assume that Open Road will want to avoid the Aaron Sorkin film on the same subject, not wanting to go up against The Social Network screenwriter, no matter how much star power they hoped Kutcher would bring to the project.

    The film, written by first timer Matthew Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote, The Contractor), concerns Steve Jobs professional career between 1971 and 2001. It didn’t do too well at Sundance, and even Woz got in on the action, calling it a crap script.

    Ashton Kutcher's 'Jobs' Film to Launch on August 16



    The Wrap reports that Ashton Kutcher's film "Jobs" will now debut on August 16 in the United States. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Music Festival in late January to mixed reviews, had been scheduled for an April 19 wide release, but was delayed.

    Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme financed and produced the movie, which Open Road acquired in a service release deal prior to this year's Sundance Film Festival, where "Jobs" was the closing night film. Both sides decided to wait and create proper buzz before releasing "Jobs" rather than rush the movie out so soon after Sundance.

    By opening after most summer blockbusters (Sony's "Elysium" is the last major title on Aug. 9) rather than mid-April, "Jobs" now stands a better chance to succeed and distinguish itself in the marketplace.

    "Jobs", which stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, is one of several Jobs-related films in the works or already released. Back in April, rumor site Funny or Die released a rather poorly received "iSteve" comedy film starring Justin Long, who had played the "Mac" character in Apple's long-running "Mac vs. PC" ad campaign.

    A third film is being written by Aaron Sorkin and is the official adaptation of Jobs' authorized biography by Walter Isaacson. The film, which is still in the early stages of development, is planned to encompass three 30-minute scenes showing Jobs backstage just prior to the launches of the original Mac, NeXT, and the iPod.

    Paperback Edition Of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs Bio Coming This Fall With New Cover



    Simon & Schuster has confirmed it will be launching a paperback edition of Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography on Steve Jobs this fall, featuring a younger Jobs on its cover. The book, which will also be updated with a new afterword, will be available on September 10.

    The book’s new cover features an image of Jobs taken by Norman Seeff in 1984, the year Apple launched the first Macintosh. The Apple co-founder obviously looks a lot younger than he does in the book’s original cover, which was taken 22 years later by Albert Watson, but he’s pulling the same pose.

    Jobs approved the biography’s original cover, which he insists was the only decision he did have a hand in.

    It’s unclear how many copies of the book have been sold since it went on sale in the fall of 2011 — Simon & Schuster is choosing to keep that information close to its chest — but it was Amazon’s best-selling book for some time after its release.

    It was also the retail giant’s best-selling book of 2011, despite being available for just a few months.
