Synchronised swimming club recreates Jaws poster
To celebrate the release of Steven Spielberg’s classic film Jaws on blu-ray, a synchronised swimming club has recreated the iconic poster as part of a routine set to John Williams’ famous score
The Portsmouth Victoria Synchronised Swimming Club has recreated the iconic Jaws poster as part of a routine set to John William’s famous score to promote Universal Pictures’ first ever blu-ray release of the remastered film.
The routine was devised by Head Coach Helen Morris to pay homage to the classic film and was performed by a team of nine girls from the club aged between 13 and 17. As well as other movements, the routine included famous dorsal fin shapes and the club’s interpretation of the well-known opening scene in which a lone female swimmer falls victim to the shark.
Here’s some images from the performance:
JAWS is available for the first time ever on blu-ray and it is out today! Find out details about the release here.
Helen Morris, Head Coach of the Portsmouth Victoria Synchronised Swimming Club, said, “We’ve had various requests over the years, but this is the first time we’ve ever had to interpret something like Jaws – which would normally have everyone leaving the water! It is such an iconic film and we loved being part of the challenge.”
A Universal spokesperson commented: “We wanted to celebrate Jaws in a unique way, and what better way than heading back into the water to bring the film to life like never before. The film is famously known for putting a generation off swimming in the sea, but as the Portsmouth Victoria routine is in a pool we don’t think it will have the same effect! With the release of Jaws on blu-ray, remastered and restored for the first time ever, old and new fans can rediscover the iconic film and re-live the terror once more – only this time in stunning high definition.”
