Perhaps the most iconic movie poster of all time is that of Steven Spielberg's Jaws, which was painted by artist Roger Kastel and used on both the cover of the paperback edition of the Peter Benchley novel as well as the poster artwork. Kastel's painting shows the massive shark launching towards the surface where a tasty treat awaits.
That tasty treat being an unfortunate young woman having a swim, and thankfully there were no swimmers present in this real-life recreation that Daily Mail shares this week.
The site reports, British cage diver/filmmaker Euan Rannachan captured a terrifying image of a great white shark off the coast of Mexico that almost perfectly recreates the famous poster!
"The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We’d been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface," Rannachan told the site, explaining how he captured the photograph of the seventeen-foot shark. "A guy named Crazy Luis stood up on the boat to bring the shark to us when we sit on the surface in the shark cage."
