'jOBS' biopic gets new release date over summer Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic finally has a new release date.
Originally scheduled to reach theaters on April 19th on the anniversary of Apple's founding, distributor Open Road Films decided it needed to be delayed.

The movie covers the years 1971-2000, right before the release of the original iPod and the beginning of Apple as the giant it is today. The film will show off Jobs' founding of the company, his ouster, the founding of NeXT and Pixar, and his return to the company after Apple purchased NeXT in 1996 for $429 million. NeXT's software highly influenced Mac OS X and iOS. Some of the movie was filmed in the original garage in which Apple was founded.

The film is now slated for a wide release on August 16th.

Is this going to be a comedy? From the stills it looks like its a comedy.
