Micheal Fassbender is one of those actors who I’ll gladly follow to the ends of the Earth. He never disappoints – not even in JONAH HEX (*shudders*). Showing off his skills at completely disappearing into his roles, the talented actor does so once again in STEVE JOBS, playing the titular icon who made Apple a household product. The film’s latest trailer below is Fassy-centric, but is really just about getting to know the man in the machine.

Directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, the biopic also stars Kate Winslet (as former marketing chief of Macintosh, Joanna Hoffman), Seth Rogan (as co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak), Jeff Daniels (as former Apple CEO John Sculley), and Katherine Waterston (as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend/ baby momma Chrisann Brennan).

Just like any Apple product, I crave this in my life.

STEVE JOBS opens on October 9.
