Of note, this does have an included booklet with stills from the film as well as some production notes. For fans of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, this long-awaited 4K Ultra HD release has been well worth the wait. Not only does the film and sound look better even that it did even during its initial theatrical release, it’s hard to imagine that it could ever look better. Universal’s technical team is doing some marvelous 4K catalog restorations right now—here’s hoping we get to see lots more of them on physical Ultra HD going forward. This one is not to be missed. Jaws begins with a night scene in which we see the first victim of the giant great white, and in terms of video quality isn’t exactly the way you want to show off the capabilities of 4k. But when the movie switches to daylight there is a noticeable improvement in sharpness, finer grain, and color depth.
There is nothing new in the extras department, but a whole host are included on the UHD, listed below, for everything, the included Blu-ray is the one to spin.
Jaws was shot using Arriflex 35-III and Panavision Panaflex on 35mm film, with subsequent scanning at 4K resolution to form a native 4K DI.

John Williams created one of the most iconic scores in the history of cinema. I remember how good the DTS HD Master Audio sound mix was on the previously-released Blu-ray and now we’ve got a Dolby Atmos mix that ups the ante yet again. The result is nothing short of perfection. Spielberg explains on the featurette how the individual elements were used to make the sound “move” from left to right and add in surrounds. Of course the score is of the utmost importance and it’s never sounded better. I remember in some earlier versions of the film, there was a bit of a loss when it came to the dialogue. This isn’t the case here as it sounds sharp and crisp. This is another testament to the restoration of this film and I’ve simply never heard it sound more amazing than it does here. Supplements: What are the extras?Universal is on a roll with its recent catalogue UHD releases.

Some other filmmakers such as Kevin Smith and M. Night Shyamalan chime in as well. Broken up into ten chapters, we get a look at pretty much everything that went into the making of this monumental classic and it’s a must see for any fan of the film. Sure, I imagine come around the 50th anniversary they will do another restoration, likely in 8K by then, and that is the only way I think this film will ever look any better than this. That’s just my honest opinion here, folks. It is one very nice upgrade and worth making the jump from DVD or Blu-ray to a great 4K presentation of the original 2012 restoration — in all of its glory. Jaws” arrives on 4K UHD Blu-ray with a new Dolby Atmos sound mix, including a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 core for those without the proper equipment to decode that mix. It is certainly worth noting that you also get a DTS 2.0 Mono mix ( @447kbps) of the film included in the English language. So, it’s nice to see that the original Mono sound mix included — even if it isn’t in a lossless sound format. The Dolby Vision color grading is just as big a victory for the picture as the resolution increase. The colorists have certainly not gone
