Jaws (1975), subway poster, US

Artist: Roger Kastel (dates unknown)

Unframed: 46 x 58 in. (116.8 x 147.3 cm)

This poster was designed to be pasted up on the New York subway. Therefore only unused copies survived. The poster was also printed with full credits on the blank area on the right-hand side. This particular version doesn't have the credits, and therefore has far more impact.

Very rare. This piece does not surface often.

Jaws invented the summer blockbuster and was a massive hit that shattered box office records. It was the film that propelled Steven Spielberg to international fame, and frightened a whole generation out of the water!
