Jaws, the Spielberg classic that revolutionized summer movie releases and is one of the best movies ever made, gets an IMAX re-release for the very first time on September 2. It will also be available to watch in Real D 3D. This is the type of event that I can support, because it feels like this current generation hasn’t really understood the importance of this film. Universal will also re-release ET on August 12, which is next week. But that’s the main event. Below is a trailer for the IMAX release, and you can already purchase tickets for screenings by yourself right now, here. I can’t stress that you all should go see this.
Jaws fans, unite!
