Today brings some good news and some bad news when it comes to the forthcoming Apple pioneer biopic. First up, we’ll deliver the latter: most audiences won’t get to see Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs as early as expected. Instead of a wide release on October 9th, Universal Pictures will now release the Aaron Sorkin-scripted film only in New York and Los Angeles on that date, before expanding the following weekend and going wide on October 23rd. As for the good news, we’ve now got another look at the film thanks to a new trailer.

“For the most part, this is the filmmaker’s most reined-in picture in some time, as if a too-kinetic approach would interfere with the verbal energy of Sorkin’s script.” Variety said in their review. “Besides Guy Hendrix Dyas’ unobtrusively excellent production design, the picture’s major visual coup is the decision to shoot the three acts on three different formats: grainy 16mm film for 1984, lustrous 35mm for 1988, and sleek, high-definition digital for 1998. The distinctions may well be lost on the vast majority of viewers, but it’s just the sort of nicely understated aesthetic flourish that Steve Jobs himself would have surely appreciated.”

Led by Michael Fassbender, the film is set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac. Featuring Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh, Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, played by Seth RogenJeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team, check out the trailer and poster below.
