‘Steve Jobs’ gets Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release on February 2

Earlier this year, Steve Jobs was released after a prolonged development cycle. And now it’s been revealed when you can purchase the film.

The film was released on October 9, 2015, in the United States. Ahead of that release, though, the movie, which chronicles three of the largest product launches of the former Apple CEO’s career, saw releases in a variety of film festivals around the United States, all of which garnered plenty of critical acclaim. However, word of mouth didn’t work out so well, and the film didn’t gross nearly enough to stay in theaters for a prolonged period of time.

Now, Universal Pictures has officially announced that for anyone that wants to own the movie, they can do so on February 2, 2016. Interestingly enough, the film will see its release on a variety of platforms, something that’s not all that familiar to film releases these days. Specifically, those interested will be able to choose from a digital release, DVD, or a Blu-ray copy all on the same day.

One caveat: The digital release is for “Digital HD UltraViolet.” That might mean it’s not available on iTunes on February 2. Even if it isn’t, though, the release should be soon after on that digital storefront.

On the DVD and Blu-ray, owners will find special features like “Inside Jobs: The Making of Steve Jobs,” as well as audio commentary from the film’s director, Danny Boyle, the film’s writer, Aaron Sorkin, and the film’s editor, Elliot Graham.
