June 16 1978: Universal Pictures releases Jaws 2 nationwide. The film’s advertising tagline “Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…” becomes one of the most famous and popular taglines in motion picture history. Andrew J. Kuehn, who developed the first film’s trailer (Jaws), is credited with coining the phrase. The blurb is still frequently spoofed and referenced in social vernacular to this day.
