Official film logo

Jaws 15 is a 2011 horror/thriller film about the outbreak of hungry killer man-eating sharks that begin to terrorise a local beach land and a dockside in Southern California following the death of a fisherman who was killed at shore by a shark. In order to stop the threat, the U.S. Coast Guard is called along with three water-based war veterans to take down the sharks and stop them before even more people get killed. This is the first film in the franchise to be Rated R in the United States, and is directed by Max Spielberg (the son of the original director of the franchise who directed the first ten "Jaws" films between 1975 and 2006). The film did well at the box office and was the #1 movie during it's opening weekend, with "Paranormal Activitity 3" (2011) and "Footloose" (2011) right behind.
