Director Steven Spielberg's seminial classic Jaws is finally being released on Blu-ray for the first time this Tuesday, August 14th, and it's loaded with special features. Today (August 9th) being Robert Shaw's birthday, Universal Home Video has offered up a look at one of these extras, which revolves around the actor's participation in the film, and his role as Quint, the elusive shark hunter who ultimately finds himself inside the literal jaws of Bruce, the greatest Great White to ever grace silver screens. We also have a look at 'Quint on Sharking' and 'Coming Around Again', two more of the featurettes included on this release.
In other fun Jaws news, Narragansett Beer has reintroduced their 1975 can back into the market. This is the same beer Quint can be seen crushing in his iconic standoff with Richard Dreyfuss' Matt Hooper on the Orca.
"The moment you've all waited for is finally here. The limited edition retro can is now available in package stores where Narragansett lager beer is proudly sold. Featuring our award winning lager beer and only in 18 packs of 12oz cans, ask for these today at your local retailer. These are only available for a limited time and just like summer they'll be gone before you know it. This is the same design the brewery used for their labels throughout the 1970′s. Yes, it is the same can that Quint crushes in Jaws. To celebrate, we are running a "Crush It Like Quint" contest. Recreate this memorable scene to the best of your ability with this can. Snap a photo and send it to us. The best and most creative "Crush It Like Quint" entry will win a Gansett prize pack including a Blu-Ray copy of Jaws. We'll pick the winner on August 31st. Make sure you use the hashtag #CrushItLikeQuint when posting to Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr so we can find it. Or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
