Jaws the 30th Anniversary Edition R1 coming June, R2 August...REVIEWS!

...and will you fall for it, 2 hour documentary and mono sound included, again?

With so many comments in the 'Upcoming' thread, it's clear a thread all its own is called for. Full details (well almost) at DVD Times, including box art here:

Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Jaws 30th Anniversary Edition for 14th June 2005 priced at $22.98 SRP. Steven Spielberg's monster classic resurfaces on DVD to celebrate its 30th Anniversary coming to us as a two-disc set packaged with a Commemorative Photo Journal.

Arriving in separate Widescreen and Full Screen editions features include...

Disc One: Main Feature
English DD5.1 & DTS 5.1 Surround
English 2.0 Mono
French and Spanish DD5.1 Surround
English, French and Spanish subtitles
Deleted Scenes and Outtakes
From the Set
Shark Facts

Disc Two: Extra Features
The Making of Jaws - A 2 hour documentary with cast and crew
Storyboards
Production Photos
Marketing Jaws
Jaws Phenomenon
Universal's most recent update confirms we'll be seeing the full length version of Laurent Bouzereau's excellent documentary.


Will you be double dipping? Or will you be joining the crew of the Orca for the first time?

At that price I'd buy it even if it just had the documentary and not the film!

More like triple dipping - but, yes I think I'll be getting this yet again for the doc. and Mono soundtrack. Am I right in thinking it won't have a new transfer though?

Will be buying for the full documentary and the mono sound.

It's worth pointing out that "Jaws", while it may have begun the summer blockbuster trend, is also very much a quirky Seventies movie with characterisation and dialogue that some less mainstream directors would kill for. It's also beautifully paced and far from a slam-bang action fest.

How can you refuse a shark-related dvd? You're a member of the shark family, after all...

Full docu, original mono mix
I'm still waiting for reviews though but those 'features' are definitely what would make me dd.

I'm undecided but weak-willed.

It'll be a triple dip for me, so I'm not sure my sanity can take it - unless DVDSoon can come through with a ridiculous price & then it all becomes academic.

Thats exactly why i love Jaws. I think when i was a kid, i tended to watch movies without listening to dialogue, and thought Jaws was just another trashy flick. I absolutely love the dialogue.

Everytime its on TV i cant turn it off. And for some reason i never picked up the 26th anni. version.

Hey, I wonder if we will hear Spielberg use even more naughty words in the longer version of the doc. Hearing Spielberg swear is soooo weird, it just creeps me out.
For the life of me I can't remember how long the cut was of the doc on the 25th Anniversary Edition. If it's substantially longer then I'm deffo sold.

I'll be getting this again for the original sound and longer Doc, and the fact it's my most favourite Film of all time.

Time you know the trailer on the current version (I think it's on the first of the 3) well the scream made by the "Pond" Victim, was that ever in the final Film, if not, will it now be

My favorite movie. I remember wondering why the full Doc wasn't on the disc first time around but Universal have answered that.

Normally extras don't appeal to me, picture and sound are more important but as this is one of my favourite films ever anything in addition to the film is going to make me buy! buy! buy! So I guess that's a yes.
