“jOBS” finally has a release date. Open Road Films has announced that the movie will come out on April 19, 2013.

This news comes a day before the film is set to close out the Sundance Film Festival. As we await the influx of reviews that are sure to come, Entertainment Weekly has the first clip from the film. It shows Ashton Kutcher’s Steve Jobs gushing over the fact that Josh Gad’s Steve Woz just developed a real-time computer operating system. According to EW, the scene is set in the parking lot of Hewlett Packard.

“This is freedom! This is freedom to create, and to do and to build, as artists, as individuals,” Jobs says in the clip.

His Apple co-founder Woz responds, “Look! You’re over-reacting! Even if you were developing this for freaks like us, and I doubt you are, nobody wants to buy a computer, nobody!”

And then the zinger: “How does somebody know what they want if they’ve never even seen it?”

Though Kutcher will always be Kutcher to us, he slips right into the role of Jobs and does a great job selling the character. Will the entire movie live up to this clip? Maybe, and fortunately we won’t have to wait long to find out.

Directed by “Swing Vote’s” Joshua Michael Stern, “jOBS” stars Kutcher, Josh Gad and Dermot Mulroney. Here’s the official Sundance plot synopsis:

The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, ‘jOBS’ chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. ‘jOBS’ is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently.

First official image debuts of Ashton Kutcher in “jOBS”

After months of seeing Ashton Kutcher on the set of “jOBS,” we finally have an official image showing just how Steve Jobs-like he can look.

“jOBS” has been announced as the closing night film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and this new image and a new official plot synopsis have come courtesy of that news. Though the still isn’t anything flashy, it does continue to sell just how much Kutcher looks like the late Apple co-founder.

Sundance kicks off on January 17, which means we should (read: we better) see a trailer for the film by that point in time. It remains to be seen whether audiences will be interested in the movie based on how similar Kutcher looks to Jobs alone, and it wouldn’t hurt the movie to drum up some interest. Keep in mind, there’s also that Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic to consider as well.

Directed by “Swing Vote’s” Joshua Michael Stern, “jOBS” stars Kutcher, Josh Gad and Dermot Mulroney. Here’s the official Sundance plot synopsis:

The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBSchronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently.

Fred Armisen Snl Bowie

Fred Remembers Bowie

Watch Fred Armisen’s Heartfelt Tribute to David Bowie

Portlandia returns this Thursday, January 21st at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

In life, David Bowie touched the lives of millions with beautiful, soulful performances that flowed from fearless, boundless flare. And since his passing, fellow artists and performers have expressed how instrumental his music, his individuality, and his being was to the development of their art. One of those devotees is Portlandia star Fred Armisen who took to his former Saturday Night Live stage and spoke of how Bowie’s live performances from a 1979 SNL episode have stuck with him since high school.

“Watching him was, for me, a life-changing experience,” Armisen said. “He had these backup singers that were like choir singers from the future and a toy poodle with a TV monitor in his mouth.”

Watch Fred’s heartfelt tribute to the late singer below. For more Fred, check out his Facebook Q&A and watch a free episode from the new season of Portlandia right now on IFC.com or on the IFC app.
