Steve Jobs, the Universal Pictures biopic written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, gets its debut screening tomorrow at the Telluride Film Festival. This is followed by a screening at the New York Film Festival on Oct 3rd, before its national release on 9th October.

We first saw a trailer for the movie back in May, with a longer one shown in July and a modified version shown on TV last month. A leaked screenplay draft confirmed that the movie is set around three product launchesthe original Macintosh, the NeXT Cube and the iMac …

Meantime, controversial documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine opens today. The documentary came under strong fire from Apple execs following its debut at SXSW back in March, with Apple’s Eddy Cue tweeting that it was ” an inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend [and] not a reflection of the Steve I knew.” We first saw a trailer in July.

Director Alex Gibney said in an interview with Re/code that he wanted to offer “something of a corrective” to what he saw as rose-tinted portrayals of Jobs.

There’s been a lot of hagiography of Steve. I don’t think that does justice to the man. So hopefully [people will] see it in that context.

Asked whether he liked Steve Jobs, Gibney said he was conflicted, admiring his quest for perfection but also saw him as a very self-obsessed man.

I’m appalled, really, by his cruelty, and his inability to get outside himself, and to see himself and his company in a broader perspective.
