Jaws to be back in theaters for 47th anniversary.
Jaws was released in 1975. It was the first ever summer blockbuster. It remains one of the most influential movies in film history. It was helmed by the 27-year-old director Steven Spielberg and featured an Oscar-winning score by John Williams. It took 159 days to shoot. At the time, it became the highest-grossing film of all time. Now it is returning to theaters in 3D and in IMAX for the first time. The Steven Spielberg-directed film will return to theaters starting September 2nd.
When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack from a great white shark, Martin Brody, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider); Matt Hooper, a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss); and Quint, a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it kills again.
