New photos from the 'jOBS' movie starring Ashton Kutcher have surfaced on USA Today ahead of its January 26th premiere.

The film stars Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak.

Notably, Kutcher's resemblance to the late Apple co-founder was uncanny. "There is an eerie resemblance — he didn't have to do much to get there,'' says Gad. "When he showed up, it sent a ripple of shock throughout the set. Everyone was like, 'We're in the presence of Jobs. Let's go do this.' It was literally like being in the room with the creator of Apple. This is one of those roles that's the perfect fit."

Although he doesn't resemble Wozniak as closely, Gad says he studied hundreds of hours of footage and writings on the co-founder to prepare for the role. He also took computer programming courses to tap into the mindset.

"In a way, it's a love story between these two men," said Gad. "And their journey is full of heartbreak and some different parting-of-ways moments."

"The combination of Jobs' ambition and design and Woz's technical genius provided us with one of the most revolutionary tools ever created — the personal computer," said Kutcher.

The biopic written by Matt Whiteley will close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Open Road Films has partnered with Five Star Feature Films on jOBS to release the film in April.

I love iphone but not a fan boy that makes lines or get every apple product. I really do hope these fanboys don't look stupid and camp out for this movie. That will really make Samsung kill us on their next commercial mock.

What's so good about reading "Comments", any of them really, is that you get to meet Americans without having to go there, another bonus.

They should make a movie about the founders of Samsung and call it "No one give a fu$k". Jobs was an interesting character whether you like his products or not. You Apple haters are becoming worse than the fanboys.

Isn't that true. I honesty think they Godify and praise their cheap crappy products more than apple fans do theirs.
