Posted October 01, 2018 05:16:50The Jaws franchise has been around for almost 40 years, with its own franchise in Australia, the Sharks, making up the backbone of the Australian sport.
The franchise’s iconic logo has evolved from a shark’s fin to the ‘X’ on its shoulder and the iconic yellow ‘T’ on the side of its helmet, but the iconic shark in the Jaws universe is not the iconic character from the original movie.
That role belongs to the legendary ’90s character, and the movie that inspired him.
The ’90st century has been filled with sequels, reboots and rebooted franchises, but one thing the franchise has not faced is the extinction of its iconic shark character, which was born as a result of the film Jaws: The Revenge, which ran from 1993 to 1999.
The movie, which starred Kevin Bacon, was based on the 1979 film of the same name, directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring John Cusack.
The film was released in Australia in February 2019, and set off a global franchise that saw sequels to Jaws 2, Jaws 3 and Jaws 4, and a fifth film in the franchise, J.J. Abrams’ Jaws reboot.
But as the franchise’s popularity waned in Australia and overseas, the franchise was eventually dropped from the franchise map in 2017.
The original Jaws, played by Kevin Bacon in the original film, was born in Australia.
But, the film, which made an impact on the minds of audiences in the United States, was also banned in the U.S. due to its violence, racism and references to sex and drugs.
The film, directed and written by Bogdanovics brother, Kevin, starred John CUSACK, Michael Caine, Sam Worthington, Robert Duvall and Kate Winslet, and earned $125 million at the box office at the worldwide box office.
The story follows a group of fishermen who are attacked by a shark that kills them all, except for one young boy who is rescued from the ocean.
(Bogdanovic had previously directed the 1991 remake of the movie with Peter O’Toole, and co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Kevin.)
“There were certain elements that we felt were too much of a violent, dark, dark tone,” Bogdanovic told The Associated Press in 2016.
“We felt that the tone of Jaws was too much too quickly.
And there were certain things we didn’t want to be involved with.”
After the death of the original franchise in 1993, the JAWS franchise was revived in 2019 by producer Jai Courtney, who had previously worked with Kevin Bacon and was responsible for the successful Jurassic Park reboot in 2018.
The reboot, starring a number of returning stars including Sam Worrington, Anthony Hopkins and Anthony Mackie, made $3.7 billion worldwide at the domestic box office and earned over $1 billion worldwide.
