The first trailer for "Jobs," the upcoming biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, has arrived, and it makes things like choosing typefaces, turning on computers, and even looking in the mirror appear as highly dramatic moments.

The 2-minute, 20-second spot provides a brief look at the film, which chronicles Jobs and Apple from 1971 through 2000 and co-stars Josh Gad as company co-founder Steve "The Woz" Wozniak. Originally set for an April release, it's now due August 16.

The trailer comes some five months after the release of a clip showing Kutcher and Gad heatedly discussing early plans for Apple's first computer while in a parking garage, something Wozniak said never happened.

"Jobs," which was originally called "jOBS," premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where it received mixed reviews. Many critics found fault in the story but not necessarily Kutcher's performance as the iconic CEO. You can read CNET's review here.
