One of Steven Spielberg’s early blockbuster movies — and there have been quite a few of them — is headed to Blu-ray disc for the first time, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The movie is the 1975 release “Jaws,” the film credited with creating the modern summer blockbuster.
The release is part of Universal’s celebration of its 100th anniversary, the story notes, with the “Jaws” Blu-ray — including digital remastering, 7.1 surround sound mix and four hours of special features — set for Aug. 14, 2012.
The story notes: “For the last 15 years ‘Jaws’ has been as much a staple of basic cable programming as ‘Law & Order’ reruns. Many have only seen the shark-infested thriller chopped and cropped for television, but soon they’ll get a chance to rectify that grave miscarriage of cinematic justice.”
