Jaws is commonly referred to as the first modern day ‘Summer block-buster’ when it set box office records in 1975. Since the first film there have been three sequels, video games, a musical and inspired theme park rides at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Japan. The saga surrounds a Great White Shark and its attacks on people at Amity Island, and the marine biologist and professional shark hunter who are enlisted to kill it.
