Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Jobs’ Biopic Release Delayed for Additional MarketingBy: Josh Wolford - March 18, 2013
You’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer to see Ashton Kutcher’s Steve Jobs biopic.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Open Road Films has decided to push back the release of Jobs. The film, which was originally slated for an April 19th release, is being postponed so that it can benefit from additional marketing, according to the sources.
There’s no new date to report, only that it’s been pushed back from April 19th.
Jobs (previously titled jOBS), premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January. The reviews were mixed, with many praising Kutcher’s portrayal of Steve Jobs while at the same time dismissing the films as disappointing, “saccharine,” and “too respectful.”
“Jobs details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2000. Jobs plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access during shooting to the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc,” according to the film’s producers Five Star Feature Films.
jOBS stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak. It also features Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine. It’s directed by Joshua Michael Stern, who brought you the 2008 political comedy Swing Vote.
