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.”

Take a Look Behind the Scenes of Some Classic Films

As the saying goes, “a picture can say a thousand words.” This is especially true when we’ve already had entire movies made surrounding the topics of said pictures, and thus thousands of words pre-associated with them. Nevertheless, these pictures from behind the scenes of some of the past century’s most memorable films still find more to say all by their lonesome selves.

See Famous Pop Culture Enemies Hug It Out, Adorably

Jaws Re-imagined As a Heartwarming Family Tale [Video]

In case you happen to follow me — or The Mary Sue — on Twitter, you might know that I was on vacation in Orlando last week. But the day I left for said vacation, I was really disheartened to find out that the Jaws ride, one of the original attractions at Universal Studios when it opened in 1990, will be closing! So, I rode it one more time, and it was a truly sentimental experience. (Eh, not really.) In fact, the video above — by Caleb Hepler — echoes my feelings almost exactly. (Again, not really.) I’ll miss that curious shark! (Ehhhhhh … maybe a little.)
