The first trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher has been released.

Kutcher (35) is set to play the title role of the Apple co-founder in the film, set for release in America on August 16th. Jobs was chosen to close the recent Sundance Film Festival in January, a prestigious slot at the annual Festival.

Josh Gad features in the film as Steve Wozniak, Jobs' Apple co-founder.

"Steve's been doing the impossible ever since he was in a garage" says one character in the trailer.

J.K. Simmons, Dermot Mulroney, Ahna O'Reilly, Lukas Haas and Victor Rasuk also star in the upcoming film.

"The people who think they are crazy enough to chance the world are the ones who do," Kutcher says as Jobs in the trailer.
