Ashton Kutcher is Steve Jobs, the iconic Apple innovator and groundbreaking entrepreneur. This inspiring and entertaining film chronicles Jobs' early days as a college dropout to his rise as the co-founder of Apple Computer Inc. and forced departure from the company. More than a decade later, Jobs returns and single-handedly sets a course that will turn the once-tiny startup into one of the world's most valuable companies. His epic journey blazes a trail that changes technology — and the world — forever. JOBS is a riveting story of a true America visionary, a man who let nothing stand in the way of greatness. Co-starring Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, J. K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.

Distributed by Open Road Films, “Jobs” is directed by Joshua Michael Stern from a screenplay by Matt Whiteley. Released last Aug. 16 to mostly negative reviews, "Jobs" ended up being a commercial failure as well as a critical one.

"Jobs" is also now available in Blu-ray and DVD formats for $23 and $18, respectively.
