The second trailer for the upcoming "Steve Jobs" biopic was released on Wednesday, giving viewers a better sense of what to expect from the film. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak obviously played a prominent role in the development of the company and knew Jobs well, so what did he think of the new trailer?
Wozniak dished about his reaction to the clip to Bloomberg, and it seems that he really enjoyed it overall. He did note, however, that the clip gets some of the facts wrong.
For example, in one of the more prominent scenes in the trailer, Wozniak confronts Jobs, lamenting about Jobs taking all the credit for Apple's creations. That never happened, according to Wozniak. "I don't talk that way," Wozniak told Bloomberg. "I would never accuse the graphical interface of being stolen. I never made comments to the effect that I had credit taken from me."
Wozniak also commented that he didn't really recognize himself in the trailer. The role of Woz is played by Seth Rogen, and while the actor may look a bit like a young Steve Wozniak, some people say neither he nor Michael Fassbender, much resemble their Apple counterparts. That said, Wozniak did admit he was honored to be played by a popular actor like Rogen, so it seems like he got over the weirdness of a stranger portraying him onscreen pretty quickly.
Despite the slight errors and the fact that it's weird to see someone else playing him on the big screen, Wozniak admitted that he really enjoyed the trailer overall, and is looking forward to seeing the film when it comes to theaters in October. "Steve Jobs" will premiere in Australia on October 8, the US on October 9 and the UK on October 12.
