Today in Movie History – July 22nd, 1983 – Jaws 3D Released

The third feature film in a series that was a premiere blockbuster was released on this day in movie history.

Jaws 3D was the third film in the Jaws series that began in the 1970s. Originally pitched as a spoof, Jaws 3D instead was set at Sea World, where after a baby shark attacks, the mother shark makes herself known as well.

The film, which used old-style stereoscopic 3D, starred Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr. It would be released on July 22nd, 1983.

Unlike the first two films, Jaws 3 did not receive positive reviews, but was still a moderate financial success. It would be followed by the fourth and final Jaws film four years later, Jaws: The Revenge.
