After the trailer for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic, a new trailer for a documentary called Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine which addresses the controversy surrounding the maverick has arrived.
Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, the documentary highlights the life of the late Apple co-founder, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Combining old footage and new interviews, the movie centres on Jobs’ private and personal life and how he became a brilliant technology maker.
The trailer opens with Jobs wearing his iconic turtle-neck top with a pair of blue jeans in an expo. “Thank you for coming. We’re gonna make some histories together today,” Jobs said. Jobs made big changes in the world with his incredible inventions.
“He made the iMac, he made the iPod, he made the iPhone. He’s made everything,” a child says in the two-minute trailer.
The trailer continues with the earliest stages of Apple’s development when Jobs and his friend, Steve Wozniak, brainstormed some of their earliest ideas in the garage of Jobs’s childhood home.
The documentary also exposes Jobs’ dark side. “His stuff was beloved, but it wasn’t that he was beloved,” someone says in a voice over.
Produced by Gibney and Viva Van Loock, the movie is slated for release in limited US theatres on September 4.
