Marketing for the upcoming "Jobs" movie starring Ashton Kutcher has definitely been ramped up as the film's theatrical release draws near. Now, to give us a better idea of what to expect from the biopic, a new preview clip from the movie has been released. In the new clip, posted by Moviefone and spotted by 9to5Mac, the title character, Steve Jobs as played by Kutcher, and his Apple cofounder, Steve Wozniak as portrayed by Josh Gad, come up with the now famous Apple name.

According to the clip, embedded above, Woz apparently wants a "Star Trek"-inspired name for their fledgling company, like Enterprise Computers and Phaser Beam Computers. But Jobs wants none of that nonsense, deciding instead on the "simple but sophisticated" Apple, which "comes before Atari in the phonebook" to boot. In essence, the scene pretty much jibes with the two Steves' accounts of how the Apple name came to be, which you can check out in the classic videos below: If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.

In that clip, Jobs tries to convince the other Steve that Apple’s operating system will "become a ubiquitous product for mass consumption." Since then, plenty of "Jobs" previews have been released, including the movie's first full trailer, Instagram teaser, and behind-the-scenes featurette. Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, "Jobs" is set to premiere internationally on Aug. 16. As Kutcher notes in the aforementioned featurette, “The film starts when [Jobs is] this kind of rebellious kid and carries through all the way to the invention of iPod.”
