In the race to produce the first and/or best Steve Jobs biopic, the strangest incarnation has just revealed its first sneak peek. Funny or Die's iSteve, a full-length feature starring former Apple pitchman Justin Long that took three days to write, five to shoot, and amounts to almost 75 minutes in length, released its first teaser trailer online. Watch the footage below:
Though the actual footage of the film is minimal, the message of the trailer seems to fit in with the idea of Jobs himself (calling himself a legend, declaring "I am Apple!"). But is this movie merely a spoof, or something more substantial?
This is the third Jobs biopic in production at the moment: first came Aaron Sorkin's still-in-development hightly anticipated film, and then came the Ashton Kutcher-starring independent film jOBS. Check out a clip from jOBS to compare to the spoof iSteve:
Which Jobs biopic are you most excited to see? iSteve, also starring Lost's Jorge Garcia as Steve "Woz" Wozniak, and James Urbaniak and Michaela Watkins and Bill and Melinda Gates, will be released online at FunnyorDie.com on April 15.
