For the first time, “Jobs” is available through Netflix’s $7.99 monthly unlimited streaming plan. The film stars Ashton Kutcher as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Released in August 2013, “Jobs” was met with mostly poor reviews, and proved to be a commercial failure making just $16.1 million during its theater run. It scored a 27 percent approval rating among critics, and 41 percent audience approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Distributed by Open Road Films, “Jobs” was directed by Joshua Michael Stern from a screenplay by Matt Whiteley. Besides Kutcher, "Jobs" stars Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, and Matthew Modine as John Sculley. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is currently working on another Steve Jobs biopic, this one based on the bestselling biography written by Walter Isaacson. That film may star actor Christian Bale in the title role. See also: Op-Ed: Would Steve Jobs Have Embraced iTunes For Android? Via: MacRumors UPDATE: "Jobs" has been removed from Netflix streaming.
