Lots of cool Steve Jobs news out today. This morning’s news was maybe the goofiest Jobs footage we’ve ever seen, but this afternoon we get something on a more serious note: The first trailer from a newly unearthed hour-long interview to be released in theaters this summer.
Called “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview,” the documentary is the product of an interview shot in 1995, ten years after Jobs had left Apple and the year before he’d return to start the iRevolution. Initially shot for a TV series, the films’s site says “only a part of the interview was used in the series and the rest was thought lost. But recently a VHS copy was found in the series director’s garage.” It’s now been spruced up, “placed in context” and will be released by Magnolia films May 11, with a DVD release this summer.
From the looks of it, Jobs is at his most philosophical in the trailer, offering, “The way we’re going to ratchet up our species is to take best and spread it around to everybody, so that everybody grows up with better things.” Gotta love the ambition of a guy who doesn’t want to just build a great company, but improve our “species.” Take a look below.
