Trailer Of The Week - Week #4

Ahead of our look back at the film tomorrow, take three minutes out of your Sunday to relive the 1975 trailer for Jaws. Whilst it may creep in at a decidedly lengthy three minutes and sixteen seconds, the trailer for Steven Spielberg's seminal shark-thriller largely avoids the prevalent seventy's affliction of coming across as unintentionally camp and instead manages to promote the film as a genuine horror effort. There's even some nice editing together of the second half's boat sequence to make a shark-fin packed finale which never fully spoils the film's own fishy reveals. A very professional effort, considering the other trailers that were around in the seventies.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
