With publicity for the new Steve Jobs movie ramping up ahead of its October 9 release, a new video was shared by ScreenSlam over the weekend, showing a few behind-the-scenes moments of the creation of the film, along with some cast and crew interviews.
Seth Rogen, who stars as Steve Wozniak, praises screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s unique approach to the story and describes the movie as so „cinematic“ and different from any other biopic, that it almost feels more like fiction than reality. Director Danny Boyle also described the movie as a natural extension of Sorkin’s previous movie, The Social Network, with both films centering around individuals who „create this modern world“ and the repercussions their innovations have on themselves, their friends and family, and everyone who uses what they built.
ScreenSlam also posted a lengthier 37-minute video – of which the original video is a truncated version – that houses in-depth interviews with more cast and crew members including Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Aaron Sorkin himself. The glimpses behind the cameras of the movie’s shoot can only be found in the shorter video, however.
The film has been the subject of some controversy over the last week, when Aaron Sorkin gave a heated response to Apple CEO Tim Cook’s initial negative impression of the yet-to-be released movie. The next day, Sorkin reneged slightly on his comments, saying that „Tim Cook and I probably both went a little too far,“ and hoping that Cook enjoys the movie when he sees it as much as Sorkin enjoys Apple’s products.
