Will These 'Jobs' Clips Convince You To See It?

Two new clips for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic (no, not the one from Aaron Sorkin) have been released, and they're just as impressive as a, well, Pippin. Starring Ashton Kutcher with a scruffy haircut, the Two and a Half Men actor looks like a young Jobs in the clips for JOBS, set to be released Aug. 16, but the performance just screams Kutcher.

In the first clip, Kutcher and Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon), who plays Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, debate what to name their company. And we're left debating whether the scene was as good of an idea as a company named after Star Wars.

In the second, Kutcher reads a famous speech by Jobs over images and videos of the visionary staring at a beer bottle, slamming a phone, and frolicking through fields of grass. Here's hoping it plays better on the big screen than on our, well, Apples.

JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine, and James Woods. It will be released by Open Road Films on Aug. 16.
