After dropping an initial teaser snippet back in May, Universal in collaboration with Legendary Pictures have today released the first official full-length trailer for the new Steve Jobs movie pencilled for release in October of this year.

The story of Steve Jobs’ life was made to be told in the form of a movie, and the Aaron Sorkin-written biopic based on the official biography by Walter Isaacson is shaping up very nicely indeed. With that said, uncertainties have been aplenty in assembling the cast, with Christian Bale seemingly outlined for the role of the man himself before making a u-turn, but Kate Winslet has now been earmarked for a role in the upcoming biopic.

For quite some time, there have been rumors moving around that the Steve Jobs biographical motion picture (or biopic, as it’s usually called) might be adopted by Universal Pictures, since Sony Pictures is considering dropping the project. Just a week ago, Sony actually did drop the project, and a week later, it has been taken up by Universal Pictures, confirmed a source to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has taken a rather surprising step with the launch of a website called WhereToWatch.
