Despite the fact that we’ve seen numerous “Jaws” documentaries throughout the years, few of them can compare with the comprehensive roster of “Jaws” cast and crew who participated in “The Shark is Still Working.” Steven Spielberg, Roy Scheider (who also provides warm narration throughout the documentary in his instantly recognizable and inviting voice), Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, Carl Gottlieb, Peter Benchley (in his last on-screen interview before his passing), Joe Alves, Bill Butler, John Williams, Richard Zanuck and David Brown -- practically any cast and crewmember that you could think of that are still traipsing on the mortal coil gave their time to discuss the film’s production and legacy.

Quote:
One of the most astounding things is that this truly exhaustive, nearly all-inclusive study of all things “Jaws” never wears out its welcome. The cut currently being shopped to Universal runs at a very healthy three hours and 14 minutes, making it the longest documentary ever devoted to “Jaws.”

Hard core Jaws fans have known about this film for a while now. They've locked the print and are trying to get Uni to put it out.

These dudes have put a ton of effort into this and I sure hopt I get to see it soon.

Bring it on! Posted Image

Brett, I've been waiting for this FOREVER. I hit jawsmovie.com every so often to see how the doc. is coming along. I don't know if you know this but the cabin that Speilberg & Co. occupied during the filming of Jaws was recently torn down. Seeing the pics of it getting demolished was pretty painful.

I remember back in 1995 (or so) when the Jaws laserdisc set came out and I thought that a 2 hour documentary on a 2 hour movie was crazy. I'm happy that someone's getting crazier. Posted Image

A couple of reviews are now online of the 3 hour version of our doc.

This needs to be bundled into a special edition of Jaws on HD-DVD! Come on Universal and Spielberg wakeup!

Update- The Shark is Still Working has been making the festival rounds.  We are hoping for a summer 2010 release on DVD to coincide with the 35th anniversary of JAWS.  Universal is rumored to be holding back JAWS on blu-ray until the anniversary as well.

May 2-3 - Los Angeles, CA
June 12-13 - San Francisco, CA
July 18 - Denver, CO (tentative)
Aug 1 - Tulsa, OK
Sept 10-16 Chicago, IL
Oct 2-4 New York, NY
Nov 13-15 London, England

They are film festival showings, so anyone can attend.  As far as blu-ray, that would be up to the distributor.   The actual date/time for NY has not been determined yet, but it will likely be 9:00 PM on Oct 2nd.  It will be part of the New York United Film Festival.   I am also working on getting a showing at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX in September.

Last night we showed the trailer at Red Rocks in Colorado before a showing of JAWS.  There were 6000+ attendees and we got a great response to the trailer.   The result is that we are adding two more screenings in Denver on July 17 and July 19.

If it gets to Philadelphia, I'd definitely check it out. If not, I'll be the first in line to buy the DVD next summer.

Same here. If it comes to Philly, I'm there and I'm buying the dvd on the first day. I've been waiting for this dvd for a very long time now.

It sucks to live in Little Rock when you're hoping to see a film not in wide distribution.  Guess I'll be waiting for the DVD (hopefully a blu-ray).

Is there any chance The Shark Is Still Working will see the light of day on DVD/Blu-ray? Been wanting to see this for ages.

I would like to see it included on a special features disc for the upcoming JAWS blu release(providing Universal buys it to include). That would be the most logical choice! As a standalone release? I don't think it will ever be released. Unfortunate.

You and me both! If there was one. Ideally Yes I'd like to see it as a supplement to the movie - but it's not the only doc, did you see the Biography inside story special on it? They may have used some of the same footage, I don't know. But I did see this in LA and it's good.

I'm still crossing my fingers that Universal will aquire this, and release it(with other special features)on the upcoming Blu-ray release.
