Due to the extraordinary artwork and rarity, this poster is the most sought after JAWS 2 poster available. There are three versions of this poster; the 1st release Teaser which was sent to theaters well before it was released in the summer of 1978 and then there was a 2nd release teaser that didn’t include the date below the title and there was a 3rd release Teaser that was released shortly after this one. The history behind the 1st and 3rd releases is not an uncommon one for film marketing companies. Audiences were confused when this 1st release was first displayed because they thought it was the original Jaws film being re-released; so to help clarify the confusion the 3rd release was issued with a tag line above the Jaws 2 text reading: “ALL NEW”.
This version is the most valuable version because it is a 1st release, the rarest and has nominal text covering the truly menacing artwork.
This particular original Teaser style B movie theater poster that is for sale is in very good to fine condition and is folded has some minor imperfections to note. The fold lines have accentuated wear, but no holes or tears, there are two blemishes in the artwork above the central horizontal fold line on the right half of the poster and there is is a <1/2″ tear on the bottom margin to the left of the work “teaser” and another folded over corner on the bottom left corner which has a <1/2″ tear in the margin area. After linen backing this poster will display very well and would be a truly beautiful centerpiece in anyone’s home.
