Here is the first picture of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs from the biopic film jOBS. It is the story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

The picture invites comparison with an actual picture of Steve Jobs himself in the 1980’s. Check out the image gallery below.

The film is directed by Joshua Michael Stern. It will span three decades of the entrepreneur’s life and is “a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently”.

The film will be premiered on the closing night film of the 2013 Sundance film festival. The film festival will run from 17-27 January 2013.

jOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine. It is likely to have a general theatrical release around October 2013. UPDATE January 2013: The film will be in US theaters April 23, 2013 and Australia June 13, 2013.
