The week in film: Steve Jobs, 'Tower Heist' and 'Ides' [Video]

October 7, 2011 |  5:41 pm


As the world mourned the passing of Steve Jobs this week, Hollywood also reflected on the legacy the Apple and Pixar co-founder left on the movie world. Meanwhile, Universal announced a bold experiment under which the Eddie Murphy-Ben Stiller movie "Tower Heist" will be available on-demand three weeks after it arrives in theaters.

The Times' Rebecca Keegan and Steven Zeitchik offer their thoughts on what Jobs meant to Hollywood, as well as on the viability of the "Heist" experiment and this weekend's release of George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March."
