Starting in 2012, your boat can, unfortunately, remain the same size. Universal Studios Orlando has just announced that on January 2, they will officially close one of their oldest attractions, Jaws. Over the past few years, Universal Studios Orlando has been eclipsed by its sister parks, Islands of Adventure and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the owners are doing their best to reinvigorate their original location. Since Jaws has been part of the park since it opened in 1990, and is based on a movie that’s almost 40 years old, it’s being closed to “make room for an exciting, NEW, experience.” So if you plan on getting married when Jaws pops out of the water, you have one month to make that happen.

Over the weekend, we ran a story about Steven Spielberg confirming that a Jaws Blu-ray disc is on the way. The news broke in an interview that Quint, aka Eric Vespe, did with the legendary director on Ain’t It Cool News in anticipation of the upcoming anniversary of the film’s 1975 release. He’s now published the full interview and it’s a must read. Spielberg comes off as such a knowledgeable, awesome fan and he tells some riveting behind the scene stories. We’re going to highlight two: one about the scene which makes him want to make another Jaws and the time President Ronald Reagan said E.T. was real. So check those out after the jump but head over to AICN for the full interview right after. Read More »

When DVD began permeating the culture a little over a decade ago, Steven Spielberg was famously one of the last filmmakers to embrace the format. He’s shown a similar aversion to Blu-ray with only a handful of his films (Saving Private Ryan, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, War of the Worlds) available on the high definition discs. Those tides seem to be turning though, as in a recent interview with Ain’t It Cool News tied to the upcoming 36th anniversary of Jaws, Spielberg said they’re currently working on a Blu-ray of that 1975 hit. Plus, the film credited with starting the modern summer blockbuster won’t have any “digital corrections.” Read his quotes after the break. Read More »

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 40 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness.

Cool Stuff: Amity Island Boat Hire T-Shirt

I always love the designs at Last Exit to Nowhere, which features t-shirts featuring the logos of companies and locations featured in some of our favorite feature films. Unfortunately the company is UK based and the price conversion and shipping makes their tees very unaffordable for US based film geeks.

Today’s tee design on Teefury is something I’d expect to find on Nowhere, a Jaws homage by RubyRed. The good news is you can grab the “Amity Island Boat Hire” t-shirt for only $9 plus shipping (a very fair price). The bad news is it will only be available today (Thursday October 14th 2010). So act now or it will disappear forever at the strike of midnight. See the full design after the jump.

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know that I love good movie-inspired art. And the superbowl of movie art is Crazy4Cult, an art show put on every year by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. This year’s show will open on July 9th, and we have seen the first batch of artwork premiere online. For years I’ve been writing about the show, and posting and buying the art online. I’m super excited because this year I’ll be able to attend the event since I now live in Los Angeles.

Last week I posted the first compilation of the artwork from the show, including new pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. Click here to see Part 1!

Today I’ve returned to bring you a collection of art pieces which have since come online. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!
