The release of the Steve Jobs biopic “Jobs,” starring Ashton Kutcher, has been postponed, with no new date announced yet. Producers have quoted that the delay is aimed at affording more time to market the film.
The film was originally slated for release on April 19th and was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival – where it got mixed reviews. The movie’s story plot can be said as the story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.
From the screening, the movie itself looked decent though it did sparked some controversies. As for Kutcher’s portrayal of Jobs, he did a pretty good impression and as for the dialogues, much of it appears to accurately reflect what’s already out there in books about Steve Jobs. Many of the people who watched the screening thought that the movie is a very worthwhile attempt that goes beyond the character of Steve Jobs, but reflects on the struggle of a visionary leader and a team of geniuses who took no shortcuts to create something beautiful and worthwhile.
Kutcher currently co-stars in the hit CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men as the character Walden Schmidt and he looked a lot alike Jobs in his younger days. This must have been one of the many reasons why he has been casted as Steve Jobs himself.
With no exact date known, audiences all around the world are waiting for the announcement of the movie and hope it doesn’t disappoint.
