Steve Jobs Film Hints At Awards Nominations As It heads For UK Box Office

THIS month sees the long-awaited premiere of Danny Boyle’s insight into the man at the centre of the digital age.

The audience will experience a back stage pass to the unveiling of the 1984 Macintosh and subsequent creations of the Apple empire, while also taking an intriguing look at the personal issues Jobs faced as a husband and father.

This will be the fifth film to date that delves into the world of Jobs and his vital part in the digital revolution, but none so far has created quite the same amount of public hype.

Boyle, Academy Award-winning director of Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours, is an undeniably exciting candidate for delivering this story to the masses.

Combined with a diverse cast line-up and an estimated budget of $30 million, audiences are sure to be in for a treat.

The film has been met with mixed reviews in the US, with the New York Film Festival (NYFF 2015) concluding that it will make you “loathe and love the man”.

Empire magazine, however, have summed it up as “ridiculously entertaining” and a number of recent press reviews have hinted at award nominations, which bodes well for Jobs’ fans and its imminent release over here.

Decide for yourselves about the man, the myth and the legend on Friday November 13, when the film will be released in cinemas across the UK.  See it locally at Movie House Cinemas www.moviehouse.co.uk.
