The Hollywood Reporter recently ran a feature noting the moved release date of the upcoming biopic focusing on the life of Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs.
Initially scheduled to hit theaters by April 16, the release of “Jobs” has been moved to an unannounced day.
Open Road, the production firm responsible for the film, is noted to have wanted more time in marketing the film, thus the reason for the delay. The delayed release comes after the film’s initial screening during the Sundance Film Festival held on January this year.
Based on its screening, the film had received mixed reviews, most notable of which entail how the supposed real life characters of the film were nothing like their real life counterparts.
Even Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is noted to have shared his sentiments regarding the film, with previous reports indicating that his depiction in the movie was certainly far from the real him.
Essentially detailing the history of Apple’s inception as seen through the eyes of its co-founder Steve Jobs, “Jobs” is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, with its screenplay written by Matthew Whitely.
As a film, “Jobs” doesn’t only focus on the life of Steve Jobs, but also keys in on some of the more notable milestones in Apple’s history, including the release and unveiling of the first Mac computer system, as well as the release of the iPod, which revolutionized the rise of portable media players.
