‘Jaws 19’ Gets a Trailer to Celebrate the ‘Back to the Future’ 30th Anniversary

by Britt Hayes 4 days ago
As any movie fan worth their salt will undoubtedly recall, Back to the Future Part II imagined a timeline in which we had hoverboards, automatic lace-up sneakers, futuristic Pepsi (more on that here), and…Jaws 19. Robert Zemeckis’ time-traveling sequel was almost eerily prescient in its imagining of the future of blockbuster franchises, and now there’s an official trailer for Jaws 19 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the best film franchises in history.

Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks May Move to Universal, Threatening ‘Jaws’ and ‘Back to the Future’ Reboots

by Britt Hayes September 2, 2015 @ 5:49 PM
For several years now, Steven Spielberg’s production company DreamWorks has partnered with Disney to distribute their films, while Spielberg has been free to produce and direct films with and for other studios. But a major change is brewing, as DreamWorks is cutting free from Disney next year with the studio eyeing a leap over to Universal. This seems like a basic corporate maneuver, but with that change could come something that either excites or terrifies you: reboots of properties like Jaws and Back to the Future.

‘Jaws’ Is Coming Back to Theaters For Its 40th Anniversary

by Matt Singer May 28, 2015 @ 11:59 AM
On June 20, 1975 a movie about an angry fish opened in about 500 theaters around the country. It was called Jaws, it was directed a guy named Steven Spielberg, it was scary as hell, and it changed the world forever. Its unique release strategy (wide instead of limited), intense television marketing campaign, and record-breaking box office essentially created the summer movie season (and made Spielberg a household name). 40 years later, regardless of its impact, Jaws remains a masterpiece, and a much better and more interesting movie than the vast majority of so-called summer blockbusters that it birthed.

'Jaws' Goes LEGO With This Really Cool New Set

by Jacob Hall May 2, 2014 @ 8:37 AM
The great joy behind LEGOs is that they give you the ability to create. Sometimes, that means creating an elaborate fantasy world where only you know the rules. Other times, that means recreating your favorite movies. Many films have been the subject of LEGO parodies and tributes, but few have felt as successful as this 'Jaws' set, which could potentially go into production if enough people give it their support.

Sibling Revivalry: Watching 'Jaws' For the First Time

Quite ironically, while countless folks descended to beaches for the unofficial start to the summer season, Lindsay and I watched our next "Sibling Revivalry" film - the ultimate ocean-going horror movie: ‘Jaws.’
Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic gives me goose bumps to this day, but – unsurprisingly – Lindsay wasn’t nearly as affected. Chalk it up to her lack of patience with the film’s slow burn premise, or the fact that she couldn’t get Jim Carrey parodies out of her head – ‘Jaws’ made her laugh and yawn more than it made her scream.
But, for the record, it did make her scream. Once! We discuss which scenes she found effective, Lindsay’s new use for John Williams’ iconic score, her favorite kill, Hooper’s stupid decisions, and – yes – she manages to find a way to bring Tom Cruise into the conversation, yet again. Here’s our discussion after Lindsay watched ‘Jaws’ for the first time…37 years after its release.
