The Black Turtleneck Is Back! Check Out Michael Fassbender As Steve Jobs In The First Trailer For The Biopic Here!
This isn't the first movie based on the life of Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs. But based on the trailer, this looks like the version we've all been waiting for!
The teaser trailer of Universal's Steve Jobs (above) mostly includes audio from Michael Fassbender, who is playing the titular role of the famous inventor.
Check out the teaser to see Fassbender in Jobs's signature black turtleneck and glasses, and go see Steve Jobs in theaters October 9!
So many millions of dollars, so little time!
Apple CEO Tim Cook, who took over for Steve Jobs, recently revealed that he plans to do good things with his ca$$$h!
Cook is worth $112 million, and has another $665 million in restricted stocks, which he has been quietly donating, but now he's thinking bigger.
Like Microsoft magnate Bill Gates, Cook wants to set up something like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to give money to many different charities! And he's also going to take care of his nephew's college tuition.
While many people criticized Jobs for not donating, his wife explained that he actually had been quietly donating for years.
This has us wondering…
Is It Better To Quietly Donate???

A good friend will give you the shirt off his back…
But a better friend give you part of his liver!
Such was the case with former and current Apple CEOs Steve Jobs and Tim Cook.
According to the new biography Becoming Steve Jobs written by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli, Cook once offered Jobs a portion of his liver!
If this isn't friendship, we don't know what is!
If anyone would know how to manipulate circuity and metal into an iPod, it'd be Magneto! Okay, Steve Jobs too, we guess.
It was less than a week ago that Sony Pictures dropped the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic, but Universal Pictures has just swooped in and picked it right up!
It's like the movie had under 10% battery life, and then your bestie who borrowed your charger admitted he lost it, but then someone just whipped out a new charger! And that person was… Michael Fassbender.
That's right, instead of a Christian Bale Jobs, Michael will be playing the part of the late Apple co-founder!
We're just so glad an actor finally committed to the part. With Danny Boyle attached to direct, you just know it's going to be incredible.
Congrats to Michael, and congrats to Universal! Congrats to us too! This movie is sure to amaze, and we'd gladly wait outside for a ticket as long as would for a 6 Plus!
We hope this rumor is true!
According to sources, Fassbender is "in talks" to play Jobs, who sadly passed away in 2011.
We're tired of all this talk–we really hope an actor commits to the role soon!
So, do YOU think Michael would make a good Steve Jobs?

This update is going to make you want to restart!
With Christian Bale starring as Mr. Jobs, this movie just keeps on getting better. It's like recieving-a-new-operating-system level of better.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain is being considered for an unspecified role. Maybe Siri? Just kidding, that's ridiculous.
The movie, written by Aaron Sorkin and to be directed by Danny Boyle, will be comprised of three extended scenes focusing on the backstage drama before three different product launches.
Well, we're pumped for Seth! This could be his big dramatic break.
Here is some news that might make you shriek!
Remember when we told you that Scream, Wes Craven's ultra-popular horror anthology, was being reimagined for your small screen?!
Yeah, that was nearly a year ago, but guess what? MTV is finally gearing up to shoot the pilot!
The plot is shrouded in mystery, but they're currently trying to cast the show's four series regulars and their descriptions might surprise you!!!
