The new Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher was originally set to debut on April 19th after airing at Sundance earlier this year – but according to the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s release has been delayed in order to allow more time to market the film before it is released. A new release date has so far not been announced.
Open Road Films is pushing back the release of Jobs, which was scheduled to hit theaters April 19, the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer. A new date has yet to be determined (the film previously was titled jOBS).
Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter that Open Road wanted more time to market the film, which was fully financed and produced by Mark Hulme’s Five Star Feature Films.
Despite concern over Kutcher playing the title role of Steve Jobs, critical reception praised Kutcher for his portrayal of the Apple co-founder, although overall accuracy of the film was criticized quite heavily. While we wait for the movie to be officially released, check out the below clip of Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs!
