Briefly: 'Jobs' biopic release date delayedIt was reported on Friday that the Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs," starring Ashton Kutcher in the lead role, has been delayed with no tentative release date set.
Originally scheduled to open in theaters nationwide on Apr. 16 to commemorate the 37th anniversary of Apple's founding, "Jobs" has been pushed back to an as-yet-undetermined date, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
According to people familiar with the matter, the film's production company Open Road wanted more time for marketing after the film debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival in January.
"Jobs" premiered to mixed reviews, with some claiming the characters were far from their real-life counterparts. In an interview at the 29th annual Macworld conference, Kutcher said the movie "was done with the utmost love, admiration, and respect."
Directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whitely, Jobs covers the defining 30 years of the Apple cofounder's life, including pivotal moments in Apple history such as the launch of the first Mac and the iPod.
