The first trailer for the new "Steve Jobs" movie starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs and Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has hit the web, and it's pretty intense even though it's all dialogue.

The film is slated to arrive in U.S. theaters on Oct. 9, four years after Jobs died.

Apple enthusiasts are hoping the film, which was originally going to be directed by David Fincher and star Christian Bale, will be a major upgrade over the Ashton Kutcher "Jobs" movie from 2013.

In the new movie, directed by Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") and written by Aaron Sorkin of "The Social Network," the focus is on the introduction of the NeXT computer, iPod and iMac. It co-stars Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels, and is based on Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs" book.
