Mondo Jaws Vinyl

Back in 1975, Steven Spielberg made the beach terrifying to families enjoying a day off on the 4th of July by bringing Jaws to theaters. Helping to make the prospect of a shark-infested beach that much more scary was the iconic, suspenseful notes that John Williams composed to add even more suspense to what became the first summer blockbuster.

Now you can bring the famous Jaws theme home on vinyl thanks to Mondo’s latest commemorative release of the score, complete with artwork by Phantom City Creative. Though the score has been available on vinyl before, it was only ever offered as a re-recording. This is the first time the score, as composed and recorded for the actual film, has been made available on vinyl, and it looks glorious.

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.

Jaws Honest Trailer

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.
