The Jaguar Shark

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (US-2004; dir. Wes Anderson)

Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew — Team Zissou — set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that had killed Zissou’s partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure.

Kaiju Search-Robot Avery mentioned this film yesterday and wanted to know how big the Shark was. Though not really a giant monster film as such, the Jaguar Shark is certainly big and makes a thematically significant cameo appearance at the end of the film. The film has a Moby Dick undercurrent and plays out against that classic story, though in tone and narrative it is quite different.

Here’s a few screenshoots. Click on them to see them bigger.
