It seems only appropriate that the first movie trailer to be unveiled on Instagram would be for the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher as the innovative Apple cofounder.

In the 15-second clip, we see snippets from the film as Kutcher's voice can be heard saying, "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

The film chronicles Jobs' creation of the famed computer company out of his garage with Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) through Apple's rise under Jobs' leadership to a force that literally transformed society.

Wozniak himself, though, thinks the movie gets it "totally wrong."

At least that's how he felt back in January after watching a clip that surfaced online and showed Kutcher as Jobs trying to convince the computer wiz about the intrinsic societal value of his designs.

"Not close...we never had such interaction and roles," Wozniak told Gizmodo. "I'm not even sure what it's getting at...Personalities are very wrong although mine is closer." 

He added: "Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club [of which he was a member]. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn't start talking about this great social impact."

Guess we'll see if Wozniak views it any differently when the whole movie hits theaters on Aug. 16.

In addition to Kutcher and Gad, Jobs, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, also stars Dermot Mulroney, James Woods, Lukas Haas, Ron Eldard, Matthew Modine and Amanda Crew.
