Jaws shark

“Bruce,” the mechanical shark which gave a young Steven Spielberg and his crew so many problems on the set of 1975’s Jaws, has found a new home.

The only surviving model of the Jaws shark was acquired by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences four years ago and fully restored to its former glory last year, and now the Academy has released a video showcasing Bruce’s transportation and installation at the soon-to-open Academy Museum in Los Angeles. The shark is so big that it wouldn’t fit in the building’s elevators, so a crew had to remove windows and use a crane to lift it into the building. Check out the video below.

Return of the Orca

The Orca, the famous boat from Jaws, is about to rise from the depths once again – and for a good cause, to boot. Online Jaws groups Making the Monster and The Daily Jaws are teaming to raise funds to restore a Nova Scotia lobster boat currently called Lydia and turn it into a replica of the boat that Quint, Brody, and Hooper headed out on to stop the shark that was plaguing Amity Island. But this new Orca won’t be used to hunt sharks. Instead, it’s being created for “researching marine life and helping people better understand the varieties of shark species in the area around Martha’s Vineyard including great white sharks.”

Jurassic Park Topped Box Office

In the age of coronavirus, the box office has been essentially nonexistent. There aren’t any new movies to rake in the cash, so the likes of Trolls World Tour and Invisible Man have been topping the box office. But retro favorites have proven popular in repertory drive-in screenings, which is why Jurassic Park and Jaws have returned to the top of the charts yet again.

jaws 4k

In 1975, a fledgling filmmaker named Steven Spielberg released a little movie about a big shark. It went on to become the prototypical summer blockbuster, and turned Spielberg into a household name. That movie is, of course, Jaws, and it remains an all-time classic – the type of film that is somehow endlessly rewatchable from beginning to end. There have been many home media releases of Jaws over the years, but to mark the film’s 45th anniversary this June, Universal is going even bigger with the first-ever Jaws 4K release.
