When Steve Jobs hits movie theaters on Oct. 9, it will be the second film inspired on the innovator#8217s life in the space of just two years, on top of two existing biographies, a September documentary by Alex Gibney and a 2017 opera in Santa Fe.
But Steve Jobs will be the most authoritatively credentialed movie portrait by far. In anticipation of the release, Lev Grossman spoke with writer Aaron Sorkin, director Danny Boyle and Jobs actor Michael Fassbender for the Sept. 7 issue of TIME. Here are 5 things we learned:
1. Michael Fassbender will not look like Steve Jobs mdash and the filmmakers are rolling with it
Fassbender does not share many of Steve Jobsrsquo well-known features, such as the dark hair and long nose. While Ashton Kutcher shared a striking resemblance with Applersquos cofounder and CEO in the 2013 movie Jobs, Boyle says the creative team of Steve Jobs is going for ldquoa portrait#8230rather than a photograph.rdquo
ldquoWe decided that I didnrsquot look anything like him, and that we werenrsquot going to try to make me look anything like him,rdquo Fassbender adds. ldquoWe just wanted to try to encapsulate the spirit and make our own thing of it.rdquo
The wardrobes, however, are more historically accurate, with the iconic black turtleneck appearing during the later stage of Jobsrsquo career.
2. This is not your standard narrative biopic
The movie is broken into three episodes, each depicting one of Jobsrsquo major product launches: the Macintosh, the 1988 NeXT, and the 1998 iMac. The action of the movie is completely contained within the moments behind the scenes, before Jobs takes the stage.
ldquoItrsquos not an origin story, itrsquos not an invention story, itrsquos not how the Mac was invented,rdquo Sorkin says. ldquoI thought the audience would be coming in expecting to see a little boy and his father, and hersquos staring in the window of an electronics shop. Then we would view the greatest hits of Steve Jobsrsquo life. And I didnrsquot think Irsquod be good at that.rdquoSee Steve Jobs’ Legacy in 16 Photos 1976 Apple I was Apple's first computer, which became obsolete within a year.
