The word is in, Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs didn’t make it at the Box Office. Expected revenue for this weekend is around $7.5 million from over 2,490 theaters.
Only a few critics have been backing this less-than-flattering biopic. Both Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet’s performances are great.
Some of the critics have been brutal:
‘Steve Jobs’ Bombs: What Went Wrong With the Apple Drama
‘Sorkin’s script fails to shout and quip its way to anything approaching dramatic vibrancy’
In his latest work (Aaron Sorkin), Steve Jobs, the cringing for me started at the outset with his typical outpouring of clever sentences that in a better dramatist’s hand might lead to dazzling repartee
NOTE: Apple and Jobs’ wife, Laurene, have expressed their disapproval of the film. She called it “fiction.”
