The Steve Jobs biopic titled “jOBS” is set to launch in theaters April 19. Now, we have our first clip of Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple co-founder, courtesy of ET Online. Take a look: As you can see, the scene includes Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak. In the clip, Jobs is trying to convince the other Steve that Apple’s operating system will "become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption."
"Nobody wants to buy a computer," says Wozniak. "How does somebody know what they want if they've never even seen it?" Jobs replies.Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, "jOBS" details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. It will premiere tomorrow, Jan 25 as the closing-night film of the Sundance Film Festival. Personally, I think Kutcher is playing Jobs a lot like his character on "Two and a Half Men." Still, I'll reserve judgement until I see the entire movie.
