Subject: Michael Fassbender tipped for Oscar after Steve Jobs film premieres

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/06/15 at 6:39 am

Michael Fassbender has become a front-runner for next year's best actor Oscar after an early cut of his new Steve Jobs biopic was screened in the US.

"He completely owns the screen," said Variety, despite his character being "very unlikeable throughout" the film.
"You get the strong sense from Fassbender of a mind that is always several steps beyond everyone else's," agreed The Hollywood Reporter.

Steve Jobs was shown as a "work in progress" at the Telluride Festival.

British director Danny Boyle is expected to premiere the completed version at the New York Film Festival on 3 October. The film will also close the London Film Festival on 18 October.

Co-starring Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels, it is the most high-profile of half-a-dozen films and documentaries about the Apple founder since his death in 2011.

The film was written by Aaron Sorkin, who previously dramatised the life of Mark Zuckerberg - another tech billionaire with personality issues - in the Oscar-winning The Social Network.
