Watch: Massive 2.5 Hour Filumentary 'Inside Jaws' About Steven Spielberg's Blockbuster Classic

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist June 17, 2013 at 12:18PM

Largely credited with kicking off the idea of the seasonal blockbuster and still one of the most iconic summer cinematic thrill-rides of all time, even as it's closing in on 40 years since it was first released, Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" has raised the pulse of more than one generation of movie fan. And it speaks to the ongoing power of the movie that last month at the Cannes Film Festival, many critics carved out time in their already packed schedule to try and make outdoor screening of the movie, presented by Richard Dreyfuss.

Steven Spielberg Jaws

Largely credited with kicking off the idea of the seasonal blockbuster and still one of the most iconic summer cinematic thrill-rides of all time, even as it's closing in on 40 years since it was first released, Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" has raised the pulse of more than one generation of movie fan. And it speaks to the ongoing power of the movie that last month at the Cannes Film Festival, many critics carved out time in their already packed schedule to try and make outdoor screening of the movie, presented by Richard Dreyfuss.

Well, with the summer upon us, there's no better time to get in the water (or rather, stay out of it) and Jamie Benning's "Inside Jaws" will take you there and then some. He's the guy behind those massive, fan-made, feature-length "filumentaries" -- "Star Wars Begins," "Stars Wars: Building Empire" and "Star Wars: Returning To Jedi" (watch 'em all here) -- and he does it once again, combining behind-the-scenes footage, audio commentary from cast and crew, deleted scenes and more to create probably the most comprehensive look at the movie you could possibly ask for. Indeed, running 2.5 hours long, it's even lengthier than the actual movie.

So, settle in and give it a look and be sure to check out our 5 Things You Might Not Know About Steven Spielberg's Game-Changing 'Jaws' feature too. [FirstShowing]
