Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs NeXT

While there have plenty of set photos flying around of Michael Fassbender playing Apple icon "Steve Jobs" in Danny Boyle's upcoming biopic, there hasn't been much in the way of official photography just yet. And while this is sort of somewhere in the middle, it'll have to suffice.

A reproduction of a vintage poster for the NeXT line of computers, featuring Fassy as the computer company's honcho, has surfaced online. For those of you who have been following the film thus far, you'll know that Aaron Sorkin's script centers around the product launches of the Mac, NeXT, and iPod in 1984, 1997, and 2001 respectively. The thing to keep in mind is that NeXT was actually the company that Steve Jobs started after he was ousted from Apple in the '80s. It wasn't a big hit, but elements such as its interface were influential on the industry.

"Steve Jobs" opens on October 9th. Check out the poster below. [via Sensacine]
