The BlackBerry movie already has a trailer: it invites us to experience the rise and fall of the company from within

Blackberry Movie 2

BlackBerry has stopped making smartphones and its business is now security solutions. However, some time ago it was one of the most important players in the industry of the mobile phone. Its devices were coveted by the business world and, in its heyday, by teenagers as well.

The Rise and Fall of This Company of this company is coming to theaters soon as it has been portrayed by a group of Canadian and American producers. The good news for technology fans and those interested in this type of story is that the project has finished and a trailer has just been released.

The BlackBerry Movie Trailer

In the images we can see Glenn Howerton (‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’) playing the former executive director of Research in Motion, Jim Balsillie, and Jay Baruchel (‘This Is the End’) in the role of Mike Lazaridis, the co-founder of the company. The former tells the latter “I know how to market it and I know who we can sell it to, but I want 50 percent of the company and I have to be the CEO.”

The story, based on the book ‘Losing Signal: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of BlackBerry’ by Sean Silcoff and Jacquie McNish, shows one of the first BlackBerry prototypes, the effort of young entrepreneurs to find allies to develop their idea commercially, the first steps as a company, its rise to a large company, and its first successes in an industry dominated by historic players.

In theaters, this film promises us to witness how BlackBerry changed the way people communicated and how people wanted to be part of the ecosystem whose main attraction was its advanced email and blackberry messenger. But Steve Jobs also appears on the scene presenting the iPhone, one of the devices that would put an end to the successes achieved by Canadians.

The BlackBerry movie will be released in theaters in the United States on May 12 of this year. It is time to wait to find out if it will also reach theaters in other countries or it can be viewed on a streaming platform.
