This 'Jaws 19' Trailer From 'Back to the Future II' Is the Greatest Thing Ever

14 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In "Back to the Future II," Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) arrives on Oct. 21, 2015, and the future looks like this: people riding hoverboards, driving flying cars, and drinking Pepsi Perfect. And going to see "Jaws 19" - directed by Max Spielberg, real-life son of Steven Spielberg - at the Holomax Theater.

Universal has been hyping the 30th anniversary of the classic movie with some cool promotions - including Pepsi Perfect becoming an actual thing - but this one might be the best: a trailer for "Jaws 19."

The fake trailer teases the movie by mentioning the previous sequels - like when Jaws started a family, battled a Russian shark named Ivan Sharkovsky, and learned about love in "Jaws 17: Fifty Scales of Grey." Too funny!

In "Back to the Future II," a poster for"Jaws 19" boasted that, "This time, it's really really personal." Unfortunately, critics didn't love it and future USA Today »

‘Bridge of Spies’: Complicated Relationship Between Steven Spielberg and Academy

14 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Director Steven Spielberg has been one of the most successful directors in Hollywood for four decades, with major commercial hits that have broken records at the box office. His latest film, Bridge of Spies, premiered Sunday night at the New York Film Festival and centers on an American lawyer (Tom Hanks) who is recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to help rescue a detained pilot from Soviet Russia.

Spielberg’s last collaboration to star Hanks, 2004’s dramedy  The Terminal, failed to earn any nominations from the Academy, whilst their previous collaboration, 2002’s Catch Me If You Can, earned just two Oscar nominations (best supporting actor for Christopher Walken, best original score for John Williams) but was unable to take home either, despite positive reviews and large box office numbers.

Despite having won three Oscars in his career, and the multitude of iconic films that he has helmed, »

Jaws 19 Trailer Hits

5 October 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

To promote the upcoming 30th anniversary home entertainment release of the Back To The Future trilogy, Universal is pulling out all the stops, launching a short film featuring Christopher Lloyd (you can see a teaser for that here) and now a funny trailer for Jaws 19. It’s the film, you’ll likely know, that is playing in “Holomax 3D” in Hill Valley on October 21, 2015 when Marty and Doc arrive in the future during the second film. And as opposed to just mocking up a quick bit of shark footage, the team behind the promo have bitten a page from the book of the 22 Jump Street filmmakers, running through the complete list of fictional Jaws sequels from Jaws 5 until 19. That last film directed, of course, by Max Spielberg.It’s a nice riff on franchise fever, reboots and tie-ins, even as we worry that it heralds a possible future for the »

‘Back to the Future’ fans, you can finally watch the ‘Jaws 19’ trailer

5 October 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2015 is a big year for “Back to the Future.” The beloved film celebrates 30 years (a “nice round number”) since its release, and October 21, 2015 marks the date that Doc and Marty travel to in “Back to the Future Part II.” Great Scott, this is heavy! Join us here as we count down to the festivities on this red letter date in the history of movies. We’re still waiting for Holomax theaters, but, thankfully, we don’t have to wait any longer for “Jaws 19.” Set to hit theaters this month (at least in Hill Valley), the 18th sequel for Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller finally has a trailer. Check out the trailer featuring John Williams’ iconic score that Universal released today — which also gets you up to speed on “Jaws 5” through “Jaws 18.” Don’t get too hyped up for “Jaws 19,” though. Our peek at the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, Hill Valley »

'Jaws 19' Trailer Celebrates 'Back to the Future' 30th Anniversary

5 October 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

October 21 is officially Back to The Future day, and with the first movie in the franchise about to celebrate it's 30th Anniversary, Universal Studios is pulling out all the stops. As any Bttf fan worth his salt knows, October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty and Doc go to in the future, as seen in Back to the Future Part II. And some of the artifacts from this fictional time period are becoming a reality. Earlier today, Pepsi announced that they are finally delivering their long-awaited Pepsi Perfect soda. And now, we have the official teaser trailer for Jaws 19.

We won't actually get to see Jaws 19. And after watching the teaser trailer, you'll probably agree that's for the best. The footage goes through the entire trilogy, offering the plots of Jaws 5 through Jaws 18, leading into this latest 'fictional' sequel. It sounds like Bruce the Shark and his brood have been through an awful lot, »

‘Bridge of Spies’ Could Bring Steven Spielberg a Step Closer to an Oscar Record

4 October 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Attention stat hounds: The next time a Steven Spielberg movie lands a best picture Oscar nomination, he’ll elbow John Ford out of the way on the list of filmmakers who have helmed the most. The two currently share the runner-up spot with nine apiece, a distant second to William Wyler’s 13. Is “Bridge of Spies,” a dramatization of lawyer James B. Donovan’s efforts to negotiate the Soviet release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers at the height of the Cold War in 1960, the movie to do it? Or is it just another in a long line of projects that looked good for awards on paper, but ultimately fell short?

The film premiered Sunday night as a no-frills selection at the New York Film Festival, i.e., Disney apparently did not opt for a splashy opening, closing or centerpiece selection slot. It was an unassuming way to insinuate »

Robert Zemeckis interview: The Walk, modern filmmaking

4 October 2015 4:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chatted to Robert Zemeckis about his dizzying new film, The Walk, and the job of a movie director…

Now in his fifth decade of movie-making, you might assume that Robert Zemeckis’ stature as a director would make it easy to attract funding for a new project. Not so. His latest feature, The Walk, took a decade to get to cinemas, a decade during which multiple investors passed on a film they didn’t see as slotting in to a tried and tested category. Based on the true story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center, you can see their point.  Part salute to the ineffable act of artistic creation, part theme park attraction, The Walk doesn’t pigeonhole easily. But then, Zemeckis’ films rarely do.

The enforced wait turned out to be fortuitous. In that ten years, digital and 3D technology »

Trends in 70's Cinema: New Hollywood

20 September 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Do you enjoy special-effects laden blockbusters? How about gritty crime dramas? Or biting comedies? The New Hollywood movement helped to make all of these possible in mainstream cinema. 

New Hollywood is less a trend about the kinds of films that were produced and more about the people making them. The New Hollywood movement was about a new generation of filmmakers who came of age in the 60’s and went on to define filmmaking in the 70’s. These are filmmakers who went against tradition to push film to new heights and explore new genres and ideas. New Hollywood is the passing of the torch from the classic era of filmmaking to the modern era. It showed us both how great intimate character-focused dramas could be, but it also expanded the possibilities of what film could be, giving birth to the blockbuster. The New Hollywood movement is the foundation upon which current cinema is based. »

Brad Bird says he would like to make another hand-drawn animated film

20 September 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to Collider, Bird said that he believes hand-drawn animation is still “valid” and noted the potential to make films in another genres using the medium.

“I absolutely think that hand-drawn animation is valid and I actually hope to do one in the future with a large budget and a longer schedule than we had on The Iron Giant,” he said.

Bird also spoke about the potential for 2D hand-drawn animation as a vessel for horror cinema.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Grizzly

19 September 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Following the massive success of Jaws (1975), producers were chomping at the bit to replicate its grosses. Far too many movies to mention here, but suffice it to say that most were stinkers, and none could put a dent box office – wise in the hull of the Orca. However, one little film somehow managed to not only rake in big bucks in its wake, but paid, ahem, ‘homage’ to the soon to be Universal classic. William Girdler’s Bad Bear Bonanza Grizzly (1976) follows it so closely I’m amazed Jaws doesn’t have a big black snout rammed up its grey finned keister. Regardless of its inspiration, Grizzly is a B movie blast.

Released domestically in May of 1976 by Film Ventures International (and internationally by Columbia Pictures), Grizzly brought in a whopping $39,000,000 Us against a $750,000 budget. An amazing performance at the box office, with no help whatsoever from critics who derided the film as derivative, »

Silent Bob Faces a Sick and Devastating Fate in 'Moose Jaws'

17 September 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tusk was the first chapter in director Kevin Smith's True North trilogy, which consists of three Canadian set horror movies. The next installment, which has already wrapped, is called Yoga Hosers, and everything will come to an end with Moose Jaws. Up until now, these three movies did not appear to be a part of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse, which consists of such neo-classics as Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. The one thing that has always connected the Askewniverse is the omnipresence of Jay and Silent Bob. Now, it seems they will bring everything full circle, appearing in the climax of Moose Jaws. But as Kevin Smith explains it, it's not going to end quite so pretty for one of the dynamic duo.

Over the years, Kevin Smith has become easily identifiable by both his Silent Bob character and his tent sized hockey jerseys. While it doesn't seem »

Silent Bob Is Going To Die In The Most Devastating Way Possible

17 September 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Two things have come to identify Kevin Smith over the course of his career: his beloved hockey jerseys; and his iconic character, Silent Bob. Today, we learn that the writer/director/podcaster is preparing to rid himself of one. and it ain.t the plus-sized apparel. That.s right, Kevin Smith admitted in an interview with the Australian news outlet that an upcoming sequence in his planned homage to Jaws titled Moose Jaws (you read that correctly) will be a tragic death scene for Silent Bob. The way Smith describes it, Moose Jaws will be part of his unofficial Canadian trilogy (which also includes Tusk and Yoga Hosers), and will operate like Steven Spielberg.s Jaws, only with a moose in place of the shark. I.m not kidding. So, as Smith elaborates: I was talking to Jay [Mewes] about Moose Jaws and I.m like, .I. »

Paramount handled the domestic release, while Warners took care of the international distribution.

Hollywood needs to change its game in the age of Rotten Tomatoes

8 September 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This summer, critics’ favourites Jurassic World and Straight Outta Compton trumped poorly reviewed Fantastic Four and Terminator: Genisys at the Us box office. Is it time for studios to rethink their marketing-heavy strategy?

The blockbuster movie era ushered in by Steven Spielberg’s Jaws in 1975 has given us many joys. Star Wars, Et, Jurassic Park and Avatar would all have struggled to get the green light prior to Hollywood’s great mid-70s epiphany, when the industry suddenly worked out it could release a big-budget movie on thousands of screens across the Us over a single weekend and reap the rewards, instead of staggering the release as was the norm.

Summer Box Office is Second Biggest in History Thanks to ‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Avengers’

7 September 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World,” “Inside Out” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” powered the summer box office to its second-highest levels in history, but even the presence of these formidable blockbusters wasn’t enough to forge a new record.

Domestic ticket sales hit $4.48 billion for the period extending from May 1st to Labor Day weekend, according to Rentrak. That’s a 10.4% improvement over last year’s numbers — welcome news considering that 2014’s popcorn movie season was the worst showing in seven years. Attendance can’t be quantified until average ticket price data is released, but industry watchers estimate that it will land between 518 million and 530 million, another big lift over the 495 million people that went to theaters last summer and roughly equivalent to the 538 million people who bought tickets in the summer of 2012. One other caveat is that Labor Day fell later this year, adding approximately seven days to what the movie business »
