Random Trivia For This Title:

  • In one of the re-made shots, when the shark explodes, some of the entrails that fly out of the screen in 3-D are actually a brown leather ET doll.
  • [?] Jennifer Jason Leigh auditioned for the role of Kelly Ann Bukowski.
  • The film made $13,422,500 in its first weekend. It held the record for highest-grossing opening for a 3-D film until Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003) made $33,417,739.
  • In a later interview, Dennis Quaid referred to this movie as "I was in Jaws what?"
  • Lea Thompson's feature film debut.
  • The filmmakers initially planned to have very few "pop-out" effects where objects extend beyond the screen in 3-D. Studio executives ultimately pressured them to include more, worried that audiences would leave disappointed and spread bad word-of-mouth if the 3-D were used mainly for depth.
  • Peter Firth and David Warner were offered the role of Philip FitzRoyce.
