After its opening weekend, the movie only generated $6.7 million

The death of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs was a huge event in tech history two years ago, but the recent film to commemorate his career seems to be failing in the box office.

Even the Woz didn't like it. 

"I saw 'Jobs' tonight," said Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Jobs. "I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie.

"One friend who is in the movie said he didn't want to watch fiction so he wasn't interested in seeing it."


The film, simply titled "Jobs," was released in theaters last Friday. After its opening weekend, the movie only generated $6.7 million -- putting it in seventh place among new film popularity in regards to box office sales.

"Jobs" was directed by Joshua Michael Stern and starred Ashton Kutcher as Jobs.

"Lee Daniels’ The Butler" took the No. 1 spot in the North American box office, collecting $25 million. "We're the Millers" came in second place with $17.8 million and "Kick-Ass 2" took third place at $13.56 million. 

Jobs died from complications with pancreatic cancer on October 5, 2011.
