    Following yesterday's news that the independent film JOBS starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs will open in theaters on April 19, ETonline.com has released the first video clip from the film. The brief clip shows Kutcher as Jobs speaking with Josh Gad in the role of Steve Wozniak.
    In related news, management appears to have made a change to the styling of the film's title, as there had been a fair amount of confusion and criticism over the original "jOBS" styling, an homage to the "i" naming scheme for Apple's products.

    But it appears that in recent weeks various official presences for the film such as a revamped teaser site, Twitter account, and Facebook page have adopted a new all-caps styling for JOBS, with the "J" appearing slightly larger than the other capitalized letters in the film's new promotional logo.

    JOBS premieres tomorrow at the Sundance Film Festival ahead of the public release on April 19.

    (Thanks, Joel!)

    I still don't think it's going to do well. I'm against the idea anyways.

    Looks and sounds like Ashton Kutcher in the role of Ashton Kutcher.

    Kutcher from that clip seems believable, good. But Woz, wow, thats all I've got really. That was.....shockingly amateurish acting:(

    LOL exactly. I think he looks the part, but his voice just ruins the entire thing.

    Since this is more of a documentary I would pay more attention to the message rather than the acting skills, especially in this very small clip.

    Ok, very true. When I look at from that perspective, I believe you are right about that.

    I'm not knocking anyone's craft, but have either of these two done any research on the mannerisms and behaviors of the people they are supposed to portray? Maybe it's cause it's Steve, that I'm touchy about it?

    Anyone else notice the "Hewlett-Packard" wording on the wall?

    Would have been better off going with some no name guy to take on the roll. Would have felt more authentic. Kutcher is doing okay, and I'll see the movie, but he's got too much of his own presence based on previous stuff to convince Apple people that they're watching Steve Jobs on screen. :apple:

    Your exactly right !!
    It just doesn't look right I rather stick with Pirates of Silicone Valley. Noah Wyle played a better Steve Jobs!

    I like Ashton but this doesn't even come close to Noah Wyle's performance in Pirates. That other guy playing Wozniak is even worse...

    I liked what I saw so far. I only hope it stays true to what is known and doesn't deviate a la the hollywood norm.
