Also starring Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, and Matthew Modine, the film follows a young Steve Jobs from his decision to dropout of college and become the one of the greatest entrepreneurs in history.

Early screenings of the film haven’t been too favorable but perhaps the studio was able to clean it up a bit.

Read the full release down below:

Open Road Films will release JOBS – the highly anticipated film chronicling the story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century – nationwide on August 16, 2013.

JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001.  The film plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life.  Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whiteley, JOBS was shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme.
JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
