‘Jaws’ in 3D

‘Jaws’ in 3D Was Made to “Make You Feel Like You’re in the Water”

Stereographer Jeremy Carroll talks about how Steven Spielberg approached 3D to create tension, in a new episode of THR's 'Behind the Screen.'


What many consider among the greatest films ever made, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic Jaws recently received the 3D treatment and was released today in Real D–equipped theaters. (It also opens in 2D Imax.)
