Jaws is celebrating its 45th anniversary this summer, and to help celebrate; you can watch it along with Kevin Smith. The Clerks director will tweet along with people at home watching the Steven Spielberg classic this Saturday, starting at 1 PM PST. You can spend your afternoon watching one of the all-time classic films with one of geekdom's favorite directors. Jaws fans can tweet along with the director using the hashtag #JawsAtHome. This is all in celebration of the film making its debut on 4k Blu-ray, which is now available everywhere. It is a beautiful transfer, so make sure to pick up a copy before Saturday.
