It was a rough weekend for Ashton Kutcher.
The new biopic starring Kutcher as Steve Jobs tanked at the box office on its opening weekend.
According to the WSJ, “Jobs” appears to be Hollywood’s version of the Apple Lisa.
When the smoke had cleared, the movie finished in seventh place, generating only $6.7 million despite opening broadly in the U.S. and Canada.
Critics characterized “Jobs” as lacking any of the attention to detail or stream-lined focus that Mr. Jobs brought to his projects.
Upsetting some movie goers was the fact that the film doesn’t chronicle Jobs’ triumphant return to the company he co-founded or any of his innovations that helped to make Apple what it is today.
Despite Jobs coming up short at the movies, a second film about the iconic CEO is now in the works.
Written by Aaron Sorkin and based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography, this forthcoming film already has a positive buzz and is expected to be more critically and commercially successful than Jobs.
