While Park City is already starting to empty, don't be fooled, as there are plenty more films to come before things wrap up. And one that many are curious about is "Jobs," the biopic of Steve Jobs with Ashton Kutcher in the lead that premieres as the closing night entry of the Sundance Film Festival. But if you're eager to see it soon, you won't have to wait too long.

Open Road Films has announced they will releasing "Jobs" on April 19th, which Mac dorks know is also the 37th anniversay of the founding of the Apple Computer Company. Happy birthday! The movie tracks the life of Jobs from the start of his iconic company, right through to the launch of the first iPod which revolutionized the music industry. Do you think Kutcher and co will do the Jobs justice? Let us know below. Here's the official press release with all the nitty, gritty details:

Open Road Films, in partnership with Five Star Feature Films, will release JOBS - the highly anticipated film chronicling the story of Steve Jobs' ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century – nationwide on April 19, 2013. April 2013 marks the 37th anniversary of the founding of the Apple Computer Company. As previously announced, JOBS will premiere this Friday, January 25 as the closing night film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whitely, shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme, JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. JOBS plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs' life. The filmmakers strove for absolute authenticity in making the film, including shooting in the historic garage in Palo Alto, that served as the birthplace to Apple Inc. JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
