🦈JAWS 3-MOVIE COLLECTION on 4K July 23 from Universal.
Because some people are either completists or masochists, all three sequels to the Steven Spielberg classic are coming to 4K. In Jaws 2, Sheriff Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) finds new trouble lurking in the waters. Mayor Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) wants to rid the beach town of the stain on its reputation. But the disappearance of a pair of divers suggests that all is not right. When Sheriff Brody voices his warnings about holding a sailing competition, everyone thinks it's post-traumatic stress. That is, until a shark fin cuts through the water. In Jaws 3, a young great white shark finds its way into a sea-themed park managed by Calvin Bouchard (Louis Gossett Jr.), so workers try to capture it. But the facility's attempt to keep the shark in captivity has dire consequences: A much larger mother shark appears in search of its offspring. Among those who must battle the angry aquatic killing machine are marine biologist Kathryn Morgan (Bess Armstrong), her co-worker Mike Brody (Dennis Quaid) and a pair of friendly dolphins. And finally, Jaws: The Revenge (aka, the movie that built Michael Caine’s summer home) would have you believe a great white is not-only stalking Ellen Brody, but is capable of roaring.
