Destruction of the JAWS Ride

The sad destruction of the JAWS Ride at Universal Studios Florida continues. The Ride was closed on January 2nd, presumably to be replaced by a new Harry Potter attraction.

Check out the aerial photos of what was the JAWS Ride here:

The JAWS Ride: Final Voyage 1/2/2012

 

The date was the last day of the ride, which is being demolished to make room for a new attraction. We interviewed JAWS fans, a former Skipper of the Ride and watched the ride wait times increase throughout the day.

The JAWS Ride shuts down for good on January 2, 2012.  Here’s a video I made to document the ride before it is gone …

 

JAWSFest: The Tribute Event Aug 9-12

There is going to be another JAWSFEST!  JAWSFEST: The Tribute will be held August 9-12, 2012 on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, the filming location of the original JAWS. JAWSFEST: The Tribute is being produced by MV Promotions Network, directed by Susan Sigel Goldsmith.  The upcoming event sounds great for JAWS fans:

This three-day fan-centric event will explore the experiences, filming, and memories from the making of JAWS. Our tribute will concentrate on the men and women of JAWS who have passed, with special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider, and Robert Shaw. We are inviting fans, families, cast, and crew to join us in Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) to share their personal stories, memorabilia, and experiences. This event will explore how the making of JAWS has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974 and how the blockbuster film they created continues to impact lives today. 9 am to 10 pm various Island locations.

More information about the event can be found here:

New JAWS Game Coming for Wii and 3DS

From Gamespot.com:

In the original Jaws film, the titular great white shark killed numerous swimmers before ultimately meeting his demise. However, the shark is coming back for vengeance this year in Jaws: Ultimate Predator.

Jaws: Ultimate Predator ripping flesh on the Wii and 3DS this fall.

Set 35 years after the events of Jaws, Majesco’s Jaws: Ultimate Predator will be released on Nintendo systems the Wii and 3DS this fall. The 3DS version of Ultimate Predator is currently in development at n-Space and will be produced by MicroProse.

As for its content, Ultimate Predator for the 3DS has gamers taking on “an army of shark hunters” by using the system’s touch screen to perform attacks and to dodge.

The Wii version of Ultimate Predator is in development at Tectonic Studios and takes a similarly violent route. It also has players assuming the role of the great white shark while hunting and killing prey with 20 unique attack combinations.

Gamers will take on bosses like the Tiger Shark, Killer Whale, and Sea Serpent, which are creatures that Majesco says “match Jaws in strength and size.” Further, the game will be set in Hawaii and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as Amity Island, the setting of the iconic attack from the film.

AICN Talks to Spielberg, Full Interview, JAWS Blu-Ray

The full interview Quint of AICN did with Steven Spielberg is available on the Ain’t it Cool News Site. The biggest news for JAWS fans was, of course, Spielberg spilling the beans that the JAWS Blu-Ray is in the works. But there was more … Check out the full interview here: Quint Interview with Spielberg.

Here’s an excerpt of how the stage was set:

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Let me set the stage for this. I put out my feelers out a couple months back with some people at Dreamworks (with much help from mega publicist Deb Wuliger) about getting Steven Spielberg on the phone to talk Jaws, the idea being we could time it to its pending anniversary.

That was the pitch, but that was all cover. I really just wanted to talk to the director of my favorite movie of all time ABOUT my favorite movie of all time. I’m sure my ruse was as transparent as clean plate glass window (I don’t hide my geekiness very well), but the kind souls around Spielberg allowed my request to make it to him and I heard back an enthusiastic yes right before Memorial Day weekend.

We were going to schedule a time between then and June 20th, which was the latest the interview could go up as that was the anniversary of the release of Jaws in 1975, but as of Thursday afternoon I hadn’t heard anything back …
