first_imgCNN reports that the biopic had an underwhelming opening weekend. The movie made about US$7.3 million, placing it at No. 7 in the box office. The first Jobs biopic made $6.7 million its opening weekend.But despite the movie’s lackluster opening weekend, critics still think the movie was a success.“Steve Jobs is a quality portrait of Apple’s cofounder, with a gripping turn from [actor Michael] Fassbender, even if the film plays fast and loose with history,” Kendrick wrote about the movie.“This is the time of year when adult audience are looking for prestige films,” said Phil Contrino, chief box office analyst at BoxOffice.com, according to CNN. “‘Jobs’ has great reviews and a lot of Oscar buzz, especially behind Fassbender.” Another Steve Jobs movie? That’s what a majority of people thought when it was revealed that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle would be taking on a new biopic of the iconic technology figure Steve Jobs.The first biopic was released in 2013, starring Ashton Kutcher, and let’s just say it didn’t sit well with the critics. “Jobs falls short of being anything more than an ordinary movie experience that chronicles the life of an extraordinary man,” wrote Ben Kendrick, writer for Screen Rant, in a review.So when it was announced that there would be another movie made, people were confused. Why create another movie when the first one failed to meet our expectations? But I guess that was the reason. Being the remarkable person Jobs was, it’s only right to give him the biopic he deserved.So, did the recent release of “Steve Jobs” honor his memory or disgrace it with yet again another flop?last_img read more
