Universal on Thursday released a second full trailer for the Danny Boyle-directed "Steve Jobs" biopic, mixing scenes of darker moments in the Apple co-founder's life with glimpses at his ambition.

One clip shows Jobs' infamous refusal to acknowledge the paternity of his first child, Lisa, while another shows his ouster from Apple. In other scenes though Jobs is shown explaining the potential of the Macintosh, and comparing the significance of the first-generation iMac to the Allies winning World War II.

The movie will make a limited public premiere on Oct. 9 before widescale showings on Oct. 16. It stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs, with supporting actors like Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels.

The film began development just days after Jobs' death in October 2011, but has had a troubled path to the big screen, changing actors, directors, and even its parent studio. The one constant has been a script by Aaron Sorkin, known for films like A Few Good Men and The Social Network, as well as TV shows like The Newsroom.

Steve Wozniak has claimed that the movie is one of the best cinematic representations of Jobs and the early years of Apple, despite some inaccuracies.

It has already been shown to a limited audience at the Telluride Film Festival, and will make another early screening at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 3.
