'Steve Jobs' trailer looks like the next 'Social Network'

We got a brief glimpse at Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film back in May, but today we've finally got a full trailer to watch. Scripted by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing), the biopic stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs, Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Apple's former marketing head Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. So far, it looks far more compelling than that Ashton Kutcher Jobs film (which we'll never speak of again). The combination of Sorkin's rapid-fire dialog and Boyle's direction gives us hope that it'll be something on the level of David Fincher's The Social Network (also scripted by Sorkin). That film wasn't exactly accurate, but it managed to give Facebook's founding story near-Shakespearean weight. And given how dramatic Jobs' life was, it shouldn't be too tough to do the same for this film.
