Jaws is one of the most well known movies of all time, right down to the iconic theme music composed by John Williams. However, there are likely plenty among general audiences out there who don’t know that the 1975 thriller directed by Steven Spielberg was based on a book by Peter Benchley. The book is also called Jaws, but there are quite a few differences between the book and what ended up on the big screen.

This year doesn’t mark a celebratory anniversary for Steven Spielberg‘s 1975 summer blockbuster Jaws, but the film was still released 41 years ago as of last week. Anyway, who needs a good reason to celebrate one of the best thrillers of all time despite the presence of a fake shark who is barely seen throughout the movie?
Screen Junkies is getting in the summer spirit and leading up the release of Steven Spielberg’s The BFG this weekend with a Jaws Honest Trailer, but as you might expect, they have much more praise to give out than they normally do when they decide to skewer movies. That’s because Jaws is a near-perfect film, one that should be mandatory viewing before anyone can truly call themselves a cinephile. But there are still some decent jokes to be made about the film and its characters.

In the world of motion pictures, there is an entire team of people whose job it is to create sound effects. This work ranges from duplicating the sounds of the real world, such as shoes stepping on pavement or gun shots, to creating sounds like no one has ever heard before, such as the engine of the Millennium Falcon or a flying dragon. Most of the time, entirely new sounds are created for each and every movie, but sometimes sound effects from the past get reused as well. A video round-up of ten of them can be found below.
