Steven Spielberg’s Jaws was released on this date in 1975. Considered the first “summer movie blockbuster” in history, it was the highest-grossing film in movie history until it was eclipsed in 1977 by George Lucas’ Star Wars. So thank Spielberg, for better or worse, for the likes of Spider-Man 3, Transformers, Live Free or Die Hard, and the two movies I wrote about in my previous post.
