Awesome Behind The Scenes Jaws Piccys To Sink Your Teeth Into…

We can still remember it now. Curled up on the sofa, desperately trying to grab as many pillows as we could get our hands on to hide behind, only peeping through the cracks in our fingers to catch a glimpse and quickly back again. This of course was our first 1975 classic Jaws experience and…well… we loved it!

Every once in a while a film comes along that totally changes the game, whether it’s with ultra cool new revolutionary special effects, amazing acting performances, or perhaps all out shocking storylines we’ll never forget. These films quickly go down in history and earn themselves the title of a classic or perhaps a retro movie icon, Jaws is certainly one of these films!

Directed by movie legend Steven Spielberg, Jaws (based on the books) follows the story of a small island community called Amity which quickly becomes the hunting ground of a huuge (no really…huge!) Great White Shark. After some odd goings on and an attack on a local boy, the mother of the latest victim put a large bounty on the sea beast’s head which soon sends would-be shark hunters on the case to catch their prize, but this is only the start of the Sharks feeding frenzy….

Always wanting to have a little nosy into some of our favourite films, we’ve been doing a little swimming around the depths of the internet and have discovered some simply amazing behind the scenes shots of the great beast itself and of course the iconic cast and crew. Take a peep at some of our favourite snaps and perhaps put some of those deep blue sea fears to bed ūüôā

Cool huh! Doesn’t seem so scary after all now ūüôā
