This June sees the re-release, in selected cinemas across the UK, of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975). It’s a film that pretty much set its director on the road to fame and fortune while at the same time making a huge amount of money for Universal. Jaws was such a success that it generated a whole franchise of sequels – films familiar to all those of us who, at one time or another, have found ourselves in front of the television happy to watch any old disaster movie featuring large angry living things. You know the films I mean – there’s the one where the shark eats the electric cable (Jaws 2), the one with the shark in the water park in 3D (Jaws 3D) and the one where the shark fights Michael Caine (Jaws 4: The Revenge, although even enthusiasts may have chosen to give this one a miss).
