“Steve Jobs,” a drama about Apple’s co-founder starring Michael Fassbender, will screen as the centerpiece feature at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 3, according to an announcement from the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

The film, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin (based on the bestselling Walter Isaacson biography), is considered to be one of this fall’s major Oscar contenders. It co-stars Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen (as Apple’s Steve Wozniak).

“Jobs,” which is being released by Universal Pictures, opens nationwide on Oct. 9. But the pic is also rumored to be playing at the Toronto Film Festival in September.

The 53rd annual New York Film Festival kicks off on Sept. 25 with “The Walk,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as high-wire artist Philippe Petit.

    How many Steve Jobs movies before someone asks why? The original Pirate of Silicon Valley, his wild life needs to explored truthfully and not in some glamorous form of iconic bullshit.

    Hope this film shows what a despicable person Steve Jobs really was.
