Universal Made a Trailer for Jaws 19 Because Capitalism Absorbs Its Own Critiques


When Marty McFly traveled forward to 2015 in Back to the Future Part II, he was greeted by a theater marquee touting Jaws 19, a canny wink to the franchise craze that was only just starting to take over Hollywood. (If Back to the Future had been released 20 years later, there's no way they would have stopped after just three.) Now, to celebrate Marty's impending arrival in our timelines — set your watches for October 21, 2015 — Universal has released its own trailer for Jaws 19, showing where the franchise headed after 1987's Jaws: The Revenge. (Highlights include J.A.W.S. 7 and Jaws 17: Fifty Scales of Grey.) After finishing this trailer, the studio went back to prepping for Jurassic World 2 and Furious 8.
