The biopic about late Apple CEO Steve Jobs opens in theaters on April 19, the same day as the 37th anniversary of the founding of Apple computer.

The film, titled "jOBS," chronicles the Apple co-founder's life from 1971 to 2000 with focus on the milestones and people that influenced him. Josh Gad plays Steve Wozniak, and Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Modine also star alongside Aston Kutcher who takes on the lead role. The film will be released by Open Road Films and Five Star Feature Films, and premiered on Jan. 25 at the Sundance Film Festival.

The film opens in 2001 with Jobs unveiling his masterpiece - the iPod.. The audience then travels back to 1971, where he is student at Reed College in Portland. Other moments in the film include the incident where Jobs found out he was adopted, the time he decided to leave his pregnant girlfriend, a journey to India that changed his outlook on life, and when he teams up with his friend, engineering expert Wozniak, to found Apple computers. 

The film also turns to the create of the Apple empire as it is today, and how Jobs "redirects the company's design ethos, consolidates his power and sets Apple on the path that will eventually lead to the iPad and global domination," according to The Telegraph.

Filmmakers said the biopic creates an "immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs' life" and that they were "granted unprecedented access" to the garage in Palo Alto, Calif., where Jobs and Wozniak first started making Apple computers, according to ABC News. 

A second Jobs biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin, is currently in the process of being made.

Kutcher was hospitalized during filming for "jOBS" after he decided to take on the late co-founder's alleged fruitation diet, according to Yahoo! The diet consists of fruit, nuts, and seeds, and is mainly followed by those who will eat only foods harvested without any killing or damaging of plants. Kutcher said in an interview he was admitted in the hospital for pancreatic problems two days before shooting began for "jOBS," and that he was "doubled over in pain."

Considering the fact that Jobs died in October 2011 from pancreatic cancer, Kutcher said the experience "was really terrifying." 

Watch a clip from "jOBS" below.
