An Empassioned Fan’s Plea: Make Fifteen Jaws Movies to Maintain Back to the Future‘s Accuracy


In case you don’t remember, Back to the Future II contains a memorable scene where a dazzled Marty McFly, visiting the year 2015, is overwhelmed by a holographic advertisement for Jaws XIX, the 18th sequel to Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws. But, as Tumblrer Ctrayn points out, there are only four Jaws movies, which means movie studios have only six hundred and thirty two days to keep Back to the Future II from having a singular glaring continuity error.

What? I’m sure the rest of the movie will turn out to be entirely accurate.

Obviously, it’s time to take things into our own hands, and if you’d like to join the mission of producing fifteen feature length Jaws “sequels,” you should check this post on Tumblr, where folks have already shown enthusiasm for the project to the tune of more than 22 thousand notes. And, as Ctrayn says, “Even if your film is 40 straight minutes of a rubber shark floating quietly in a bathtub… it is still probably a more entertaining watch than Jaws: the Revenge.”

    Maybe they can retcon those Syfy channel shark movies into the Jaws continuity.

    Hell, the NES game for Jaws: The Revenge was better than the movie, and it SUUUUUCKED.

    Back to the Future II was pretty damn awesome. It could never match the sheer joy and inventiveness of the first, but as a fan of the not too distant future and alternate realities, it has its charm.

    I expect auto-lace shoes that work by 2015 Nike, I’m not asking for a flying car or a working hover board here.

    Just skip ahead. Make Jaws 19 and a lot of people might go see it out of confusion. “There were that many Jaws movies? This one can’t be that bad if they keep making them…”

  • http://bittersweetfountain.blogspot.com/ Bittersweet Fountain

    YES! That should be the plan. Just make Jaws 19.

    I’d go see it.

    Well I am asking for a hoverboard. I’ve been looking forward to 2015 MY WHOLE LIFE just so I could have that pink hoverboard.

  • Dan Griffin

    My story would be that of a fishing trip gone very wrong when Jaws interrupts it. It would be called “Jaw” ala Alien – Aliens only in reverse.

  • locuas

    just make another and call it “jaws 19″ because it hapens in the year 2019…BUT, make it the most absurd, cheesy and narmstastic “20 minutes into the future” movie you could make, with laser-wielding space sharks, mutant shark people, voodoo zombie sharks and pure one liners…exactly as i imagine 2019 is going to be.

  • locuas

    i chose the accurate weather report, tahnk you very much :p

  • Mark Brown

    I’m sure the Syfy channel is already on it.

  • Cy

    I’m still disappointed that I haven’t had the opportunity to break a bone falling off a hoverboard. I can’t bring myself to face the lack of Jaws 19 yet.

  • Pink Apocalypse

    Confession. My Gen X geekdom runs deep to my core….but I’ve never seen either BttF sequels.

    Unfortunately, I have seen all Jaws sequels.

  • The Gaf

    I wonder what Max Spielberg has to say about it?

  • Rollo Tamasi

    Why does the 19 have to indicate a sequel ? Why not have a film about 19 Great white sharks and twist, it’s a horror documentary told from the perspective of the sharks, ripping off Blackfish and the Cove. In a final twist, the last story is Jaws, but told from the sharks perpective.
