Ashton Kutcher Gets His Geek On In The New Trailer For 'Jobs' [Trailer]

Ashton Kutcher's long-anticipated turn as Apple co-founder and mastermind Steve Jobs is nearing the big screen and as the release date draws ever-nearer we've gotten our latest taste of the movie with a new trailer. The alternative trailer was uploaded to YouTube yesterday (June 21) and gives the most in-depth look at Kutcher's version of Jobs to date, and it looks as though he's managed give an impressive turn as the computer pioneer.

The long-awaited biopic will soon be released following a lengthy wait since production began way back in June 2012; just eight months after Jobs' untimely death aged just 56. The biopic has been directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote, Neverwas), produced by Mark Hulme and written by Matt Whiteley in his screenwriting debut. Much of the filming even took place at Jobs' actual childhood home in Los Altos, California and the independent film was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January 2013, where it received lukewarm reviews.

Steve Jobs was the late founder of Apple Inc. and was a technological pioneer in terms of computers and general electronics. Jobs tells the tale of the extraordinary and charismatic man, chronicling his career from 1971 to his death from pancreatic cancer on October 5th 2011. Beginning with his dropping out of the expensive Reed College in Portland, Oregon after only 6 months before going on to his first job as a technician, which later saw him work with business partner Steve Wozniak for the first time; a partner who became a major player in the creation of Apple Computers, the film charts Jobs' and Apple's rise to the top before he was forced out of Apple, only to return and make it the dominant computing force it is today.

Jobs co-stars Josh Gadd, Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine, and hits theaters August 16.
