Overview - Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your seat suspense quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry.
Brightly lit exteriors are astounding, making the horror thriller look fresh and rejuvenated but still comes with an attractive cinematic appeal. Starring Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw, 'Jaws' is the film which has left a permanent mark on the history of cinema, remaining one of the most effective horror thrillers ever made, it changed the motion picture industry forever.The portrayals of each actor are already believable prior to this, but the jovial conversation transforms them into living, breathing human beings — men we feel closer to just as they're about to enter a life-threatening battle.
Quite a lot of discussion on the use of non professional actors, and some interviews with Islanders from Martha's Vinyard that featured in the movie. The disc autoplays a trailer for Universal’s 100th Anniversary before a language select screen loads the animated menu. Previous versions I've seen, even the original theatrical prints re-released in my local cinema a few years back had a terrible washed out look to them.
Universal Pictures' release of the film to over 450 screens was an exceptionally wide release for a major studio picture at the time, and it was accompanied by an extensive marketing campaign that heavily emphasized television spots and tie-in merchandise.
