The live shark footage was shot at Seal Rocks (Neptune Islands), South Australia.
After the shark was built, it was never tested in the water, and when it was put in the water at Martha’s Vineyard, it sank straight to the ocean floor. It took a team of divers to retrieve it
The mechanical shark spent most of the movie broken-down, and was unavailable for certain shots. This led Steven Spielberg to use the camera as the "shark", and film from the shark’s point of view. Many think this added to the "chilling/haunting" quality in the final release saying that it would have made it too "cheesy" had they shown the shark as much as originally planned.
In the film Saving Private Ryan, who plays Private Ryan?
Leonardo Di Caprio
Matt Damon played Private Ryan in the film Saving Private Ryan. Steven Spielberg remarked that he cast Matt Damon as Ryan because he wanted an unknown actor with an All-American look. He didn’t know he would win an Oscar for Good Will Hunting (1997) and become an overnight star before the film was released. Director Steven Spielberg originally considered casting Matt Damon after viewing his performance in Courage Under Fire (1996), but thought he was too skinny. Robin Williams introduced Damon to Spielberg on the set of Good Will Hunting (1997), and Spielberg changed his mind. Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford were both considered for the role of Captain John Miller, before Steven Spielberg decided on casting Tom Hanks.
Which superhero had the alterego Bruce Banner?
Bruce Banner was the alterego of The Incredible Hulk. Johnson changed the name of the Hulk’s comic book alter ego, Dr. (Robert) Bruce Banner, to Dr. David Banner for the TV series. This change was made, according to Johnson, because he did not want the series to be perceived as a comic book series, so he wanted to change what he felt was a staple of comic books, and Stan Lee’s comics in particular, that major characters frequently had alliterative names. On the DVD commentary of the pilot of The Incredible Hulk, Johnson also says that it was a way to honor his son David. "Bruce" ultimately became the TV Banner’s middle name, as it had been in the comics. It is visible on Banner’s tombstone at the end of the pilot episode.
