These posters will not be available separately. Music remains largely the property of the front channels but does amplify as John Williams' iconic notes become more forceful; the scene in chapter five discrete overhead elements, instead using the top layer to gently reinforce elements as is prudent to do so. On the other end of the spectrum, there's

Overall, the bonus materials here are downright excellent. Sure, this is the exact same set of extras previously found on the original 2012 Blu-ray but they are great and come to you on both the 4K disc and the Blu-ray. I mean, you get two feature-length documentaries about the making of the film and one that’s a retrospective. Then, there’s the original 2012 restoration featurette which is amazing and worth seeing. There’s also deleted scenes and outtakes, a featurette, and the film’s original theatrical trailer. All of that totals up to a little over four and a half hours of bonus content. Finally, there are the physical extras (as mentioned further above) which are great and make this on perfect set of bonus materials. output, shadow detail, and the rising sun behind clouds gently enhance the mood and screen command, reinforcing the juxtaposition between the

Jaws: The Restoration– This refers to the restoration of the Blu-ray and not the 4K disc. Still, for those interested in seeing what it took to make the film look as good as it does, this is well worth a watch.

The story to Jaws was based on the 1974 novel ( of the same title) written by Peter Benchley. The screenplay was adapted by Benchley himself, for the first three drafts, along with the help of Carl Gottlieb. Gottlieb is known first (and foremost to fans of the film) as the character “Meadows” in the film, and secondly best known for co-writing the screenplay and story to the film “The Jerk” (1979). Lastly, it’s certainly with noting that Gotltlieb also wrote the book “The Jaws Log” (1975) about the making of the film itself. and clarity across the board when comparing to the previously issued, and still perfectly workable, Blu-ray, but the UHD brings out the absolute best the original elements have to only one of a handful that feels stymied in any way. The more impressive action moments do find positive stretch, depth, and detail to all of the disc has the same supplements as seen on past digital discs and the last Blu-ray (see our comparison

Jaws was shot photochemically on 35 mm film using Arriflex 35-III and Panavision Panaflex cameras with anamorphic lenses and was finished on film in the 2.35:1 “scope” ratio for its theatrical exhibition. As part of Universal’s 100th anniversary in 2012, a decision was made to restore and preserve Jaws for the future. The film’s original camera negative was wet gate scanned in native 4K. The image was then digitally cleaned to remove scratches, dirt, and other age-related artifacts. A new 4K DI was created along with a new film-out negative. For its release on Ultra HD, a new HDR color grade was completed too (and fans will be glad to know that HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision options are all included). Despite the fact that this restoration was done 8 years ago, the result is gorgeous. Save for titles and transitions done optically (which means you’re looking at internegative rather than the camera neg), and a few shots in which the focus is a little soft, the improvement in fine detailing is very pleasing. Grain is intact, at a light-moderate level, allowing the image to retain all of its original photochemical character. The HDR grade has been done with a light hand, adding just a little pop to the image. Shadows are a bit deeper, highlights are more naturally luminous but never blown out. Only a couple of image tweaks have been done (notably an adjustment to ensure that the brightness levels of the night sky, as seen through the windows of the Orca’s cabin, match at all times) but these were visible in the 2012 Blu-ray as well (reviewed here at The Bits). The film’s colors benefit the most on Ultra HD, exhibiting a richer luster and more nuanced shadings. Yet remarkably, this film still looks like a production of its day—it retains that familiar Eastman color look. This is a very pleasing 4K presentation of a 1970s vintage film.For its 45th anniversary, Universal brings Jaws to the UHD format with a practically impeccable 2160p/Dolby Vision UHD presentation. In the Sure, I imagine come around the 50th anniversary they will do another restoration, likely in 8K by then, and that is the only way I think this film will ever look any better than this. That’s just my honest opinion here, folks. It is one very nice upgrade and worth making the jump from DVD or Blu-ray to a great 4K presentation of the original 2012 restoration — in all of its glory.
