The first look at the Danny Boyle-directed Steve Jobs movie that’s set to premiere later this year was unveiled during last night’s Mad Men series finale.
The film suffered a number of setbacks during production, with both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale dropping out of the project before star Michael Fassbender signed on, but from what we can see in the the teaser, it looks like just the right man ended up with the job.
