I recently received an email from Rui Constantino. He’s a filmmaker in Portugal, who will release a Jaws tribute film this Summer. Look for Jaws Returns (aka Tubarão: O Regresso) on the Unknown World Pictures TV Facebook page on August 21st!
The film also includes a cameo from YouTuber turned actor (and soon director) Shawn C. Phillips! Check out the trailer for Jaws Returns below!
Two divers are exploring underwater caves when they are attacked by a shark. The head of the maritime police joins forces with a young apprentice and also a shark hunter to hunt the shark before it takes hold of the beaches.
The original film begins when a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island. Police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches. But mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and also grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast. And the trio engages in an epic battle of man vs. nature.
The film sports an 98% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus: Compelling, well-crafted storytelling and a judicious sense of terror ensure Steven Spielberg’s Jaws has remained a benchmark in the art of delivering modern blockbuster thrills.
