We’ve seen blurry set pics, unofficial posters, and now the first teaser trailer for Steve Jobs has made its way online. Directed by Danny Boyle and based on a script by Aaron Sorkin, Michael Fassbender leads this latest take on the Apple innovator’s life. And from the looks of this initial tease he’s a dead ringer for the late tech genius.
While Fassbender is in the spotlight, fully decked out in Jobs’ signature specs and black turtleneck, the rest of the star-studded cast are also granted a quick introduction. That includes Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Apple marketing honcho Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as ex-Apple CEO John Sculley. Check it out below:

Steve Jobs arrives in the US on October 9 and the UK on November 13.
