Debuted at Sundance, film has met with mixed reviews so far
Jobs, the independent biopic covering a key period in the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, is now officially set to open in theaters across the US on August 16 -- four months after the originally-scheduled debut, according to distributor Open Road Films. The movie, which has seen mixed reviews overall though generally garnered praise for the effort put in by lead Ashton Kutcher as Jobs, covers his life from approximately 1971 to 2001 and also stars Broadway actor Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak.
