DVD: ‘Jaws,’ Seminal Blockbuster, Now on Blu-ray


AS part of Universal’s centennial celebration that studio has reissued “Jaws” (1975) on Blu-ray in a newly restored edition, retrofitted with a remixed 7.1-channel stereo soundtrack. Happily, the filmmakers have resisted the temptation to replace Bruce, the balky mechanical shark (actually three of them, used for different types of shots) whose frequent breakdowns helped swell the shooting schedule to 159 days from 55, with a digitally animated creature. A C.G.I. shark might have been more convincing for contemporary audiences — poor Bruce can’t do much more than roll his eyes and flap his mouth, like the world’s most menacing Muppet — but the movie isn’t really about him, after all.

Exclusive: Steven Spielberg on the Next Jurassic Park

Honestly! Daniel Day-Lewis is Abe Lincoln

Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's Biopic

When Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis signed on to play Abraham Lincoln in a biopic directed by Steven Spielberg, I thought ... well, I didn't think much of it. But, people, check out the photo on the left. Richmond, Va., native Michael Phillips snapped and tweeted the photo from a local restaurant ("Lincoln" is shooting in the area.) You'd swear Honest Abe himself had just strolled in and ordered a salad, even though the actor wasn't even in costume.


Spielberg on worst of 'Indiana Jones 4'

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is not a very good movie.


Spielberg's Tintin gets seal of approval

Spielberg's Tintin gets seal of approval

Thundering typhoons! Steven Spielberg has won the seal of approval of Tintin's native land—and that's no mean feat. In Tintin's home city, movie journalists got a sneak preview of "The Adventures of Tintin​—The Secret of the Unicorn​" this week, and knives were sharpened in case it turned out that some Hollywood mogul had barged in and desecrated perhaps Europe's greatest cartoon character ever.

Senh: That's good to hear. I'm looking forward to what two of our greatest living directors can bring us in a collaboration. I wasn't impressed by the teasers for "Tintin," but the full trailer has Steven Spielberg's stamp all over it. Should be a lot of fun.
