'jOBS' to premiere on anniversary of Apple 'jOBS,' the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple founder will premiere in theaters on Apple's anniversary.
Making a limited premiere this week at the Sundance Film Festival, the movie will see wide release on April 19, the 37th anniversary of the founding of the company.

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.
