Jaws gets new Bluray trailer

July 25th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Do we really need to tell you guys what Jaws is? No, we didn’t think so…

But we will anyway: When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and grizzled fisherman set out to stop it.

Ok, so it’s coming out on Bluray on September 3rd. But, If like us, you already own a couple of copies, is it worth picking up? Well, yes. We’ve seen some of the transfer and it is glorious (complete breakdown of what’s on the disc and comparison shots can be found here), it’s Jaws, it’s arguably Speilberg’s best hour – an exercise in taught direction, great performances, characters that stay with you and wonderfully written, it’s never looked better and for that reason, it’s essential. Oh, and IT’S JAWS!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
