With a few weeks to go before the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic hits the big screen, Universal Pictures earlier today released the second official trailer for the highly anticipated film about the Apple co-founder.

Notably, the film, naturally titled Steve Jobs, won’t be a traditional cradle to grave type of biopic. Instead, Sorkin, who knows a thing or two about storytelling, has crafted a film that will mostly focus on three of Jobs’ biggest product announcements, including the original Macintosh. Based on what we’ve seen so far in the two released trailers, the film will also touch a bit on how Jobs’ personal life helped shape his professional life and vice versa.

Starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs and Seth Rogan as Woz, the film promises to deliver an intimate and intense look at the mercurial and at times controversial man who helped spearhead some of the tech world’s greatest innovations.

Steve Jobs now stands as the third film to focus on the life of the Apple co-founder, following in the footsteps of the critically lambasted JOBS — which starred Ashton Kutcher — and the recently released Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine.

Sorkin’s effort, though, is likely to be the most riveting of them all. When it comes to engaging and fast-paced dialogue, one would be hard pressed to find a man more capable than Sorkin. With credits like The West Wing, A Few Good Men and The Social Network to his name, Sorkin is better positioned than most in Hollywood to truly capture the vibrancy of Jobs’ personality on screen.
