Steve Jobs Movie Trailer

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Late on Sunday, the hotly anticipated trailer from the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic premiered online. While the trailer itself is somewhat subdued, it provides our first glimpse at Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogan who assume the roles of Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, respectively.

Due to Sorkin’s penchant for delivering incredible stories with memorable dialogue (his past works include A Few Good Men, The Social Network, and The West Wing), there’s been a tremendous amount of interest in the second attempt at a Jobs biopic, the first, of course, being the largely panned Ashton Kutcher movie titled Jobs.

Watch Now: Hilarious new trailer for Ted 2 features Patriots QB Tom Brady

Who would have thought that someone could make a hilarious movie starring a talking stuffed bear. But, alas, that’s exactly what Seth MacFarlane did with the 2012 movie Ted starring Mark Whalberg and Mila Kunis.

Building off of the success of the first film, an appropriately titled sequel called Ted 2, was put into production. The plot of the second film, naturally, centers on Ted getting married to Tami-Lynn and their efforts to adopt a baby.

In spite of all the blockbusters that released in 2014, movie theater attendance actually took a dive. According to a recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the number one contributing factor to box office declines is the rise in ticket prices. Movie goers expect to get what they pay for, but in their minds, they’re paying more for the same experience that they’ve always had. More →

The 5 biggest movies to look forward to in 2015

Going to the movies has changed drastically over the years, from the days of the $2 matinée and a few dollars for popcorn and soda to now spending nearly $100 for two tickets, gourmet snacks and personalized seating.

As more studios focus on making fewer but more profitable movies each year, companies like Walt Disney, Time Warner, NBCUniversal (owned by Comcast), Lionsgate, Sony and others are counting on some of their big tent-poles to help drive earnings and exceed expectations, or risk facing the wrath of layoffs, angry movie goers, a declining share price and potentially a huge change and shake up to their business.

Here are the five biggest movies (in alphabetical order) to look forward to in 2015, alongside brief descriptions of what they are each about. More →
