Production started back in January on Universal Pictures' Steve Jobs biopic, but we have yet to see an official image of Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder. Today, Instagram user Sean Nung posted a photo depicting a set poster with Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, promoting his NeXT computer system. The poster uses the actual tagline used in 1988, "Computing advances to the NeXT level," although the real-life poster did not feature Steve Jobs himself.
Cult of Mac reveals that this poster was on display at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco, where the production is shooting a "major scene" involving Michael Fassbender's Steve Jobs unveiling the NeXT system in October 1988. The actual event took place at San Francisco's Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, directly across the street from the War Memorial Opera House, which was considered "a huge coming out event" for Steve Jobs, since this was his first product launch after he was ousted from Apple three years prior. Another Instagram user, raqu3l, captured another image of Michael Fassbender in his Steve Jobs costume, but it isn't known if this second image was taken on the actual set or not.Read More
