Synopsis: You know what this one’s about, I’d wager, but just in case - Roy Scheider plays police chief Martin Brody, who is learning the hard way what a pain in the ass it can be living in a tourist town. It’s Chief Brody’s first Fourth of July on Amity island, & he’s stuck between a rock & a hard place, because this 20’+ great white shark keeps picking people off the beaches & eating them, but they can’t close the beaches down, because the town will lose so much moneeeeeeeey. So the town hires salty old dog Quint (Robert Shaw) to hunt the giant shark. Quint & the Chief set out to kill the beast with the help of a fresh-faced marine biologist, played by Richard Dreyfuss.
Up next, it's A24's new joint, Hereditary. We've been waiting for this one since it scared the pants off Sundance audiences back in January. Will it live up to the hype?
