The biopic's backers - Five Star Films and distributor Open Road - reportedly changed the date because they needed more time "to prepare for a proper release and create buzz for the film".

Directed by Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matthew Whiteley, jOBS follows the late Apple co-founder during the years of 1971-2001.

Kutcher previously admitted that he was "terrified" to portray Jobs, who passed away on October 5, 2011 after battling pancreatic cancer.

"It's portraying a guy who just passed away that is really fresh in people's minds, that people are really passionate about, and care about, and have an opinion about - that's really scary," Kutcher said.

"Especially portraying a guy that I really admire... it's terrifying."

jOBS also features Josh Gad, Dermot Mulroney and Lukas Haas.
