Looks like someone needs to re-watch ‘Jaws’. In a ham-fisted attempt to extol the rough-and-ready virtues of Donald Trump, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee compared him to Quint from Spielberg’s timeless classic, while in his poorly thought-out analogy, Hillary Clinton is the deadly shark. Except – spoiler alert – the shark eats Quint at the end of the movie.

Nearly 26 years ago, moviegoers got their first glimpse of Jaws 19 — the waterlogged sequel that Marty McFly spots on a theater marquee while visiting future-set Hill Valley future in 1989’s Back to the Future II. Now, in a cheeky bit of faux-marketing, Universal has unleashed the first teaser trailer for the film, which promises that this time, it’s really personal.
