I caved and bought the Blu-ray for 18 euro's, which is against my policy of buying single film titles that cost more then 15 Euro's. Also bought a Jaws coffeemug!

I had 1975 posts in a discussion of Jaws. Irony.

I finally watched this on BluRay between yesterday and today, with a friend who had not seen Jaws for many years, and it was superb. The image was vibrant and clear, considering that I HDMI cabled th

I love that they finally went back to the original artwork.

somewhere out there Steve Awalt is dancing a jig.

I only wish we were getting our own Jaws steelcase like the folks in the UK. Quint you gotta snatch that up.

The list of extras is quite good.

For me, JAWS is the most important release on blu period.

Have preordered the steelbook. Nice to see this is two discs, so maximum space for the film.

it's two discs, a blu and a dvd. The film is not split on two discs.

Ok that's pretty rubbish then.

Edit: misunderstanding. I don't want the film split over two discs, but want the special features on their own disc. UK edition is two discs but doesn't include DVD - so second disc is either extras or digital copy disc. Hope the latter.

Thanks for posting that, Charlie. Cannot wait!

What's interesting is Spielberg keeps commenting how it will look better than when it originally played. I think that's great, and I'm all for that, but there is something to be said for capturing that vintage screening feel. I have a copy of Star Wars transferred from an old 16 mm print. Scratches, dust, jitter, the works. And yet, it takes me back to when I saw it in the theater as a kid, because in 1977 theatrical presentations were a bit like that.

Maybe they come around releasing THE SHARK IS STILLW ORKING this time? This i'd like to see.

It's on there!

this is just a preliminary list. More films will be coming. Many More. It is possible we will see Airport on blu before the end of the year.

Hegdi the release date for Jaws is August 14th in the States. We don't have to wait as long as the Brits do.

That is the list of films they are doing full restorations on. I have heard that the 14th is ET.

I could never get into Jaws or Close Encounters for some reason.

Too slow for ya, Mr Big?

Hmm, it doesn't seem like my kind of film studio.

Well that Ladd Company Logo before Blade Runner doesn't sound very good, huh?

Of course not, it John Williams. I was just showing my knowledge to you geeks.

Twice a day, huh? That means the post I'm typing right now is incorrect.

As has been established Jaws will be released in the United States of America on August 14th.

It should be noted that Jaws 2 will also be released the same day.

I will get both. Hopefully the cover art will include the Original poster art.

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water.....Jaws and Jaws 2.
