Full trailer for 'Steve Jobs' film shows Apple co-founder's successes and struggles

The full two-and-a-half-minute trailer for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic was released by Universal Pictures on Wednesday, giving a closer look at how the film will feature high-stakes drama from the Apple co-founder's personal and professional lives.

The scenes shown in the trailer span many years, showcasing actor Michael Fassbender as Jobs from the introduction of the first Macintosh, to his being forced out of Apple, to his return in 1998 and the unveiling of the iMac.

The preview also includes Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing chief Joanna Hoffman, and ex-Apple CEO John Sculley.

The trailer offers the first real glimpse at the tone and content of the film, which is expected to be loosely based on the Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. The title of the film is simply "Steve Jobs."

Universal released a short teaser trailer for the film in May. The highly anticipated movie was scripted by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, both of whom have won Academy Awards.

Principal filming on "Steve Jobs" began earlier this year, and the movie will hit theaters on Oct. 9.
