If you’ve been waiting to check out Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs movie (and, based on the dismal box office figures, people certainly haven’t rushed out to theaters), you’ve got a couple more months before you can watch it from the comfort of your own home.

Steve-Jobs-Blu-rayUniversal Pictures Home Entertainment today announced the release dates for Steve Jobs on home video and digital download. The biopic will arrive on Digital HD on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016, before becoming available on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.

The movie will include an “Inside Jobs: The Making of Steve Jobs” bonus feature, as well as feature audio commentaries from director Danny Boyle, and writer Aaron Sorkin and editor Elliot Graham.

While the movie has been one of the year’s most notorious flops in theaters, there’s a chance it could enjoy greater success on home video. Many of the comments I’ve seen here on Cult of Mac suggest many people don’t view this as a movie you necessarily need to leave the house for, which could imply that there is an audience yet to discover it, while any Oscar nominations or wins the flick gets may result in a boost in sales.

If you can’t wait until February, you can always check out the movie shooting script here.
