Warner Bros. has released an international teaser and full trailer for their Point Break remake. The trailer is obvious in its attempt to convey to you and me that this will be an extreme adrenaline-fueled heist movie. The poster gives off the same vibe as the Furious 7 poster with the cars driving out of the back of the plane. We’re struggling to be optimistic about anything we see or hear about this remake. We are huge Point Break fans, and imagining someone other than Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah and Patrick Swayze as Bodhi just feels wrong.
Are they actually surfers in this remake? The trailer gives away way too much, and we recommend only watching it halfway. It felt like a major mashup of one of those people are awesome videos on Youtube. A compilation of people doing awesome, extreme sports stuff. Will this movie be any good? A small part of us still has hope…
Here’s the synopsis:
In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string of staggering crimes that kill innocent people and send the world’s economy into a tailspin.
Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the callous architects of these inconceivable crimes.
Point Break also co-stars Teresa Palmer, Ray Winstone, Delroy Lindo, and Tobias Santelmann. It’s set to be released in the US on Christmas Day. Are you looking forward to this?
