When you leave behind a rich legacy that changed technological landscapes and lifestyles – they are meant to be celebrated on the big screens. After Aaron Sorkin’s stunning biopic trailer, we now have another trailer from none other than Oscar winning director Alex Gibney. The trailer is of the documentary ‘Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine‘ starring Steve Jobs himself, along with his ex-colleagues and friends coming together to narrate possibly the truest story of Steve Jobs life, personality and achievements.

The trailer is intense and engages you instantly. It begins with Steve Jobs himself addressing one of his many keynotes saying, ” Thank you for coming, we’re going to make some history together today.” The trailer relays his achievements, his intellectual capabilities and his fan following across the globe. However, in the middle, the video takes a turn to highlight the inner demons of Jobs, with his partner in crime Steve Wozniak himself speaking ill of the man.

The trailer shows a different side of Jobs, and when Apple’s senior VP of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue first saw the movie at its debut screening at SXSW film festival, he did not like it at all. He said that he was ‘very disappointed in SJ:Man in the Machine. He felt that it was an inaccurate and mean-spirited view of Jobs.
Very disappointed in SJ:Man in the Machine. An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It’s not a reflection of the Steve I knew.

When the film debuted earlier this year, it was criticized heavily mostly by Apple employees and many even walked out while the movie was being screened. The film is set to release on September 4 and may also be released on iTunes.
