Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back into the Water—Snakkle Celebrates the Stars of JawsHas it really been over 35 years since we first developed a fear of dark water and John Williams's use of a tuba? In 1975, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws introduced us to menacing man-eating sharks and Roy Scheider’s scowl. The film was a huge box office success, with a worldwide gross of $470,600,000, the highest of its time. Naturally, Hollywood followed up with three sequels, Jaws 2 (1978), Jaws 3-D (1983), and Jaws: The Revenge (1987). Snakkle catches up with the stars of the franchise to find out what they are up to today. By Katherine Butler
The Academy Award-nominated Jaws—arguably the first big summer blockbuster ever made—is coming to Blu-ray for the first time ever on August 14, 2012. Just in time for that family vacation to that quaint summer beach town… filled with rebellious teenagers… colorful law enforcement… rusty fisherman. But, hey, don’t worry! You’ll be safe as long as you remember skinny-dipping is best left for your neighbor’s backyard pool—when they’re out of town.
Jaws is one of 13 Universal films to be digitally remastered and restored from 35mm original film elements as part of the studio’s 100th anniversary. The Jaws Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a DVD, Digital Copy and UltraViolet, which will allow you to scare the pants off yourselves via computer, tablet, or smartphone. There are also four new hours of bonus material to wade through, including an all-new feature-length documentary, The Shark Is Still Working: The Impact & Legacy of Jaws. Feast your eyes on never-before-seen footage and interviews with cast and crew, including Steven Spielberg, Richard Dreyfuss, and Roy Scheider. Pick up your copy of Jaws on Blu-ray online or in stores on August 14, 2012.
