Ashton Kutcher's "Jobs" Biopic Available for Purchase and Rent on iTunes
Ashton Kutcher’s “Jobs” biopic has landed in both virtual and brick-and-mortar stores across the US, including options to buy or rent the movie on Apple’s iTunes. After its debut at the Sundance Festival’s closing night selection and a wide release in theaters in August, the movie has finally become purchasable.
Although the film received lackluster reviews and made a poor showing on its opening weekend, “Jobs” is the first feature-length title to take on the life of Apple’s cofounder Steve Jobs. Ashton Kutcher played the title role and is backed up by Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine and James Woods. The movie spans a large chunk of Jobs’ life, starting from the founding of Apple to the introduction of the iPod.
It should be noted that a big-budget Jobs film is also currently in the works by the Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The film is said to play in three major “scenes” comprised entirely of backstage moments just before the unveiling of the original Mac, NeXT computer and the iPod.
Those of you interested in buying the HD version of “Jobs” can be downloaded from iTunes for $19.99 while the standard definition comes in at $14.99. Rentals are also available in HD and SD for $4.99 and $3.99 respectively.
