New trailer for 'Jobs' launched; Kutcher, Gad to hold QnA August 8

updated 07:30 pm EDT, Tue August 6, 2013

Promotion building to a fever pitch ahead of August 16 opening

A new trailer for the independent biopic Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role, is now available in wide distribution. The ad itself, dubbed the "American Legend" trailer, features a number of previously-unseen clips from the film, which will be the first major movie about the Apple co-founder to reach the big screens apart from a limited run of a "lost interview" documentary featuring Jobs that appeared briefly last year. In addition to debuting the new trailer, stars Kutcher and Josh Gad will also be hosting a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) discussion on August 8.

The trailer first debuted during a YouTube "hangout" event, and includes a mix of previously seen and unseen footage, including a recreation of the Apple's public debut and a scene where Jobs informs a co-worker that he's on the "Macintosh team" by unplugging and carting off the man's Apple II. "What's a Macintosh?" the bewildered employee asks. In another scene, presumably from when he was invited to rejoin Apple, Jobs is told that "if you want to get back what you lost ... this is the time" to which Jobs replies "I never lost it ... it was stolen from me."

The film will open in theatres on August 16. The Reddit AMA will happen at 12:30-1:30PM ET, with Kutcher and Gad taking questions about the making of the film and their approach to playing the two iconic character. The movie has now been giving an MPAA rating of PG-13, presumably for language.

    I wonder if it'll be as honest as Pirates of Silicon Valley in its portrayal of the titular character...

    Nothing from Hollywood is going to be straight forward as the actual story. I am sure they added some fictional drama (and action pack) in there just to spice it up.... like ARGO. Viewers want to be entertained, not to be bored.
