Shark Week: The Summer’s Ultimate Big Gulp
Posted By Bill Newcott On August 10, 2012 @ 10:38 am In Entertainment | Comments Disabled
This year during Shark Week , great white sharks leap out of the water to nab unsuspecting seals (Air Jaws Apocalypse ); scientists go in search of Sharkzilla , the largest shark that ever lived (“T. Rex’s head would fit in its mouth!”); the Mythbusters explode some popular shark  lore; and a documentary explores, as its title promises, How Jaws  Changed the World.
Not coincidentally at all, Universal Studios is releasing a newly restored BluRay disc of Jaws  during Shark Week, including new interviews and deleted scenes.
All in all, a good week to stay away from the TV if you’re squeamish about monstrous seagoing eating machines. Why not just head for the beach?
