The first movie about Apple's legendary co-founder makes its world premiere. "jOBS," starring Ashton Kutcher as tech and computer entrepreneur Steve Jobs, got a red carpet roll-out at the Sundance Film Festival. The film chronicles 30 defining years of the late Apple chairman's life, from an experimental youth to the man in charge of one of the world's most recognized brands. Kutcher, says he was both honored and terrified to play the role. SOUNDBITE: Ashton Kutcher, actor, saying (English): "Everyone is an appropriate critic. "Everyone can tear you apart. Everyone can look at any detail, a piece of clothing or a speech pattern and go 'No, no, this is not what it was,' and that's really scary." Hours before the screening, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said the movie appeared to misrepresent aspects of both his own and Jobs' personalities and their early vision for the company. On the red carpet Kutcher noted that his comments were based only on a 30 second clip. SOUNDBITE: Ashton Kutcher, actor, saying (English): "I hope that when he sees the film, he feels that he was portrayed accurately, that the film accurately represents who he was and how he was, and more importantly, inspires people to go and build things." "jOBS" will be released in U.S. theaters on April 19. And fans can look forward to a future second movie on the topic which is currently being developed by screenplay writer Aaron Sorkin.
