'Jobs' Instagram trailer: Steve Jobs' life philosophy, in 15 seconds or less -- VIDEO

Jobs is the tale of a man who brought technology to the masses — so it’s only appropriate that we pay homage to him by watching a trailer for the film in a tiny box on an iPhone screen.

An Instagram trailer — the first of its kind, the studio boasted — debuted Monday, featuring some groovy ’70s filters and a voice-over from star Ashton Kutcher, who plays legendary Apple CEO Steve Jobs. He fervently reminds us that “the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Watch the sneak peek (all 15 seconds of it) below:

Ashton Kutcher thinks different in 'Jobs' trailer -- VIDEO

Steve Jobs was an iconoclast who revolutionized the home computer and personal entertainment, and Ashton Kutcher channels the Apple co-founder’s intense focus in Jobs, the biopic that premiered at January’s Sundance Film Festival. In the first lengthy trailer for the movie, which arrives Aug. 16, Kutcher’s Jobs is a cool hippie who sees the future when his geeky pal Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) links a primitive computer to a clunky monitor. It’s a billion-dollar idea just waiting for someone to market. Guess which Steve runs with it?

The trailer seems to embrace the notion that Jobs was a tech prophet — if not an outright messiah — but saves his conniving and despicable people skills for audiences on opening weekend.

Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Ahna O’Reilly, and Matthew Modine portray the real people who helped and/or stood in Jobs’ way.

Ashton Kutcher's 'Jobs' gets a release date

Open Road Films will release its Steve Jobs biopic Jobs on August 16.

Ashton Kutcher stars in the title role as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The film is directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote). Originally set for an April 19 release as a gesture towards the anniversary of Apple’s founding, in March Open Road Films pulled the film from that weekend hoping to find a better slot.

The August 16 weekend is already fairly full, with wide releases including Universal’s action sequel Kick-Ass 2, The Weinstein Company’s drama The Butler, and Relativity’s thriller Paranoia, not to mention limited releases like Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Austenland, and Prince Avalanche, which all played Sundance. That weekend is, however, somewhat comfortably outside the territory of the tentpole summer blockbuster hopefuls. Elysium, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Planes, and We’re the Milllers open the weekend prior.

Jobs premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film festival and co-stars Matthew Modine, Dermot Mulroney, and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak. In January, EW’s Owen Gleiberman wrote that Gad’s performance “strikes the most relatable note in the movie.”

Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic bumped from April release date

One of the more hotly-anticipated films of the spring will have a bit more time to build anticipation, as Jobs, the biopic that stars Ashton Kutcher as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, has been bumped from its April 19 release date.

Distributor Open Road Films had gravitated toward the April 19 date because it marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple in Jobs’ legendary garage (where part of the film was actually shot). According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, the movie was bumped in order to create a better marketing window, but no new date has been set.

Jobs was written by newcomer Matthew Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote), and also has a pretty killer supporting cast in Dermot Mulroney, J.K. Simmons, Lukas Haas, and Matthew Modine. It premiered at January’s Sundance Film Festival, where EW film critic Owen Gleiberman called it “a starkly honest portrait” that still “leaves you wanting more.”

Ready to have your mind blown? Check out this half Ashton Kutcher/half Steve Jobs image that Kutcher just uploaded to his Twitter, along with the message, “Thank you Sundance for your support of Jobs.”

Kutcher portrays the tech giant in the film jOBS, which premiered at Sundance last week and will be released in theaters April 19. EW’s Owen Gleiberman says of the film: “Watching jOBS, with its basic warts-and-all accuracy and unsweetened, killer-shrewd performance by Ashton Kutcher (who was obviously cast because he looks like Jobs, but who bites into the role with his incisors), I was surprised, and often riveted, by what a starkly honest portrait it is.”

Computer culture speeds everything up — makes it more instant, more immediate, maybe more disposable — and so it makes sense, in a way, that the biopics of the computer revolution are coming out so quickly, when the revolution is barely into its second act. (Most of the revered musical legends of the ’60s and ’70s are still waiting for their movie bios.) The Social Network was released just a few years after the launch of Facebook, but it was cuttingly incisive, brilliant, timeless. And now, only a little more than a year after Steve Jobs’ death, the time feels right for jOBS, which premiered last night at Sundance, and which tells the story of the Apple co-founder and black-turtlenecked guru of the technocratic age.

Sundance 2013: Ashton Kutcher brought his 'short temper to work' to play Steve Jobs

When Steve Jobs was in charge of Apple, the launch of a new electronic gizmo was a major media event, cloaked in secrecy and elaborate stagecraft to maximize anticipation and impact. It’s a technique that the team behind jOBS has taken to heart based on Friday night’s red-carpet movie premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. A grand unveiling — featuring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad, who plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak — finally put the film’s operating system on display after months of speculation.

There had been one slight hiccup: Yesterday, Open Road had released a 62-second video clip from the movie, providing the first extensive look at the actors resembling Jobs and Wozniak in the 1970s. Which was fine until Wozniak publicly called the scene “totally wrong.” (It’s worth noting that Wozniak is consulting on a rival Jobs biopic with Aaron Sorkin.) READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: First Look of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in 'jOBS' -- EXCLUSIVE


Fans know funny guys Ashton Kutcher from That ’70s Show and Two and a Half Men, and Josh Gad from Broadway’s Book of Mormon and TV’s 1600 Penn, but they come together as a rolled up ball of friendship and genius-level nerd-tech intelligence as Apple co-founders Steve Jobs (Kutcher) and Steve Wozniak  (Gad) — aka Woz — in jOBS, premiering Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie hits theaters April 19.

Check out this exclusive clip from the movie, below, of Kutcher — all bright-eyed, bearded, and enthusiastic as Jobs — heatedly discussing with Gad’s Woz — less bright-eyed, and more puffy haired — in the parking lot of Hewlett Packard a new real-time computer operating system Woz created. “This is freedom! This is freedom to create, and to do and to build, as artists, as individuals,” exclaims Kutcher in the clip. “Look! You’re over-reacting! Even if you were developing this for freaks like us, and I doubt you are, nobody wants to buy a computer, nobody!” Gad shouts back. To which Kutcher replies, with all the passion of the real Jobs,  “How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never ever seen it?”

Steve Jobs biopic 'jOBS' with Ashton Kutcher gets release date

Mark your iPad: jOBS, the biopic about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ life, is coming to theaters April 19.

Simmons and Matthew Modine. jOBS is not to be confused with the other Steve Jobs biopic, based on Walter Isaacson’s 2011 biography.
