The trailer continues telling a story when Jobs and his friend, Steve Wozniak, brainstormed some of their earliest ideas in the garage of Jobs’s childhood home. Several Apple employees were in attendance, include Eddie Cue, the company’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, who called the film “mean spirited” in a Twitter post.
We saw a short clip from the film last month, but on Friday, Mashable shared the first trailer for the film, filled with clips from Jobs’ life and interviews with those who knew him best. Gibney won an Academy Award for his 2007 film “Taxi to the Dark Side“, and recently earned acclaim for the HBO documentary “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief“.
Produced by Gibney and Viva Van Loock, the movie is slated for release in limited US theatres on September 4. This is the same documentary that premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year.
A poster for the film has also been released by Magnolia pictures, as seen below.
The Man In The Machine is a new movie directed and written by documentary maker Alex Gibney and it’s caused quite a stir with audiences ahead of its official release. On the other hand, Alex Needham of the Guardian called the film “a riveting and important corrective to the myths Jobs helped to propagate, and which in the four years since his death have proved as seductive as his machines – and a lot more durable”.
