“JAWS” Sequels Officially Slated for Blu-ray!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
Let’s be frank here: there’s no JAWS sequel that’s anywhere near the original masterpiece in terms of quality, and we’re not going to be the ones to argue that. However, the somewhat complicated relationship between horror fans and the JAWS sequels is one worth examining, especially considering how its evolved over the years. JAWS 2 is a particularly underrated film, JAWS 3 shouldn’t be completely written-off in spite of its flaws, and JAWS: THE REVENGE is a pretty terrible film horror fans keep going back to no matter how many times it hurts us. And if you’re a fan of the JAWS franchise as a whole, we’ve got some good news as Universal has officially (and finally) slated all three JAWS sequels for Blu-ray!
Hitting shelves on June 14th, JAWS 2 seems to be the most loaded release of the bunch with deleted scenes, a ‘Making Of’ documentary, a retrospective by Keith Gordon, a featurette on John Williams’ score, storyboards and a extra devoted to “The French Joke.” Meanwhile, JAWS 3 and THE REVENGE both only come with a theatrical trailer, but those with 3D Blu-ray players will be excited to hear that JAWS 3 will also come with dual-compatibility to allow fright fans to see it as it was originally presented.
