The first of three Steve Jobs movies has launched online. This is Funny or Die’s attempt at covering the life of Apple’s late CEO.
You can watch the film here.
On Monday the site said it was delaying the release until 17 April because of the Boston Marathon bombing. It actually went live on the evening of the 16 April.
Mashable readers who have watched the film are not too praising in their reviews. We’ll watch the film later and let you know what we think. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on MacworldUK on Twitter.
Comedy site Funny or Die announced in March that it would be releasing a 60- to 75-minute parody biopic of Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs, staring Apple’s Mac vs. PC ad series actor Justin Long.
The script for the 78-minute film was apparently written in three days and shot in five.
In early April the site unveiled the first teaser trailer for iSteve.
Funny or Die’s iSteve features Justin Long as Steve Jobs. The actor starred as the Mac in Apple’s US series of ‘Mac vs. PC’ ads between 2006 and 2009.
The Jobs Movie starring Ashton Kutcher was pushed back from its April release date in order to give Open Road Films more time to market the movie, reports said, leaving iSteve to release its satirical movie on its website first.
Sony is also working on a Steve Jobs movie based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography. The book has been adapted into a screenplay by The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin, and is expected to make its way to our screens later this year.
