‘Jobs’ Trailer: Ashton Kutcher Howling as Steve Jobs

By  · Published on June 24th, 2013

So much product placement, right?

The Steve Jobs biopic (the Ashton Kutcher one, not the Aaron Sorkin one) hit a bump in the road when it didn’t emerge from Sundance as a clear favorite. Audiences and critics (including Kate) were tepid in their praise, the film’s distribution was delayed indefinitely back in March, and a few months later Open Road Films announced that Jobs would land in August.

And so, like a 1980s version of The Social Network, a trailer emerges from the wilderness:

Hopefully our filter catches all the iPhone 5 spam we’re about to be hit with.

On second thought, “iPhone Spam” seems like an apt description for this trailer. So faux-serious with its play-acting, it looks about three steps a movie of the week.
