Ashton Kutcher’s Steve Jobs Biopic ‘JOBS’ Will Finally Hit Theaters

More straining than the wait for official announcement of the iPhone 6 (it actually makes all your calls for you) is the anticipation of whenever the hell Ashton Kutcher’s Steve Jobs biopic will hit theaters. JOBS — stylized in all caps, which we can all agree is an improvement on the lowercase “j” nonsense that they were fooling around with previously — debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and was slated to hit national theaters this past April. Pulled shortly before release, however, we weren’t sure when we’d be seeing the That ’70s Show vet embody Apple’s ingenious founder. Now, Deadline reports that JOBS will reach the big screen on Aug. 16, allowing Open Road Films more time to market their movie effectively.

Or maybe it just takes three months to appropriately capitalize a “j.” Either way, this will technically be the second Jobs biopic to hit this year (after Funny or Die’s Justin Long starrer), but only a precursor to the Aaron Sorkin-penned behind-the-scenes feature we’re all really waiting for. What can we say? The man can write an industry piece like nobody’s business.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
