Surf's up with the first trailer for Ericson Core's Point Break remake

05.26.2015

While the original POINT BREAK followed two charismatic leads in Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze amidst some surfing, free-falling and bank-robbing hijinx, the remake directed by Ericson Core is looking to expand on the extreme sports angle a bit. The basis is the same, as a young FBI agent (Luke Bracey) infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of corporate heists. The flick was filmed on four continents and presents feats performed by the world's top athletes, including extreme sports such as snowboarding, wingsuit flying, free rock climbing, high-speed motocross, surfing 70-foot waves, and ruining our childhood. I jest, but check out the first trailer for the action-packed flick below!

While POINT BREAK served as a fun action vehicle for it's time, I certainly don't hold as much love for it as, say, Nick Frost does in HOT FUZZ. The actors of the original totally sold that film. I do like that they're pushing the extreme sports angle even more-so here, but it remains to be seen if Bracey and Edgar Ramirez will have as much lovable chemistry as Reeves and Swayze did. Surely that would be the greatest Christmas present of all.

POINT BREAK aims to arrive in theaters on December 25, 2015.

He's already an extreme athlete?

.... Well there goes all of Utah's character progression, motivation, and inner conflict from the first one!

Hey congrats, give away the ending in the trailer, not like I was ever gonna see this anyway. Sure the original one is far from perfect, but it still had great action scenes. There was no need for a remake.

Guarantee it gets pushed to 2016....

Why??? So many questions.... but the biggest one has to be the release date. Star Wars comes out like a week and a half before this, Robert Redford's awesome looking film about the Essex comes out on christmas, and then you have to contend with all the awards movies. This movie is gonna flop so hard

This is totally going to be pushed to January. This is another shitty movie dump month film. If it comes out on Dec. 25, it doesn't stand a chance. Star Wars will still be earning 200Mil a week and filling everyones action craving holes.

I will say his acting inMuch Ado About Nothin and Bram Stoker's Dracula are both some of the worst I'v ever seen. But not Point Break. His hammy acting actually elevated an already ridiculous movie to classic status.

Lame. Definitely looks like they rebooted XXX instead, you even have the GCI avalanche, only boulders instead of snow. And the helmets are not a cool replacement for presidential masks. The best thing about the original was the realistic chase through the suburb while Bohdi wore a Reagan mask.

Why would they release on Christmas day? All they would have to do is push the movie a month and it probably could make money. Either way, it looked like your average remake: nothing special.

On a side note, for a second I thought Teresa Palmer was Kristen Stewart.

Well they fucked up one of the major points of the original. They never set out to kill people, they always tried to avoid any civilian casualties, and they actually kept the money. In this one they are some type of Robin Hood take the money and destroy it or give it away freaks, but at the same time, they are going to kill innocent people, that doesn't jive.

All about the Characters ...

What made the original Point Break is that the audience liked BOTH Utah and Bohdi. You actually felt something for the 'bad guy'. I don't think Ramirez (Bohdi) can pull that off here. He just doesn't have that Swayze charisma. The movie looks great ... the characters don't. Even the Aussie guy playing Utah looks too surfer, than FBI. At least Keanu could play both sides of the character fence. I hope I'm wrong ... but I don't think I am. Bohdi here, will be a bust.

I feel like whatever filter they're using just takes the fun out of it. Granted, they're far from the SoCal location of the original. Looks competently-made, but aside from James LeGros, this feels like a more serious Fast and Furious movie (the first being a more serious Point Break). Which is too bad, because I like Edgar Ramirez, and in an ironic way I think Ray Winstone might just be the best possible choice to play the Gary Busey part (older actor with a larger-than-life

Either way, I love the old Point Break. This was going to be an uphill battle for my affection, and I'm happy to say I remain unfazed. Maybe on Redbox. Maybe.

It actually looks watchable and dare I say, entertaining. It could have been a decent mid level action flick, but using the title Point Break and hearing the names Utah and Bodie, I just can't help but cringe at these poor man's interpretations.

Wow that looks terrible...

I applaud them for doing what you should do with a remake, taking the idea and doing something completely different. But this doesn't look, feel or sound remotely like anything Point Break. Why even call it Point Break? Looks like most of the surfing aspect is gone. Weird.

So you want them to take the idea and do something completely different...but this movie is too completely different? Admittedly I'm no fan of this idea, but the "idea" of point break isn't necessarily surfing, it's young fbi agent infiltrates group of adventurous rogues, which this seems to have nailed. Like I said, not a fan of this, but not a fan of your argument either.

First off, point break is a SURFING term. And there doesn't seem to be an emphasis on surfing in this movie...get it now? And yes, I think a remake should take the idea of the original and do something different with it. But the feel, the tone should be similar. This isn't. Is that enough hand holding for you now?

Didn't they already remake this movie? Wasn't it called THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS? seriously, just replace cars with surfing and its the exact same movie.

Many people have said that. In fact, I dare anyone who has seen Point Break to watch FATF and say it's NOT a blow-by-blow remake. Still, good for them turning that franchise into its own thing.

It doesn't look bad. I don't hate it. I was just hoping and waiting for someone in the trailer to say "Tyler." .. I understand there never will be another Point Break. Even Fast and the Furious couldn't top it or be on the same level. But I'm not against seeing what someone else can do with the story. This looks like they're trying to take it to another level but I can tell it won't come close to the original. Kudos for trying though.

This does not look bad. It really doesn't. But because it's a re-make of Point Break and because the Fast and Furious franchise is also based on a carbon copy of Point Break, I feel keeping the title and names was a mistake. Plus, Luke Bracey....zero charisma. Sorry. He is no Keanu. He is not AN EFF BEE EYE AGENT! just a pretty face with a so-so 'Murican accent.

The action and crazy stunts are not what make Point Break an action classic. It was the insane chemistry of the characters and how much insane fun it was. This looks like a bore.

Seeing as how this remake is financed by Warner Bros. I was suspecting that Wile E. Coyote would've just shown up @ that moment & shoved him off the cliffside himself.

Wow. This just looks...meh.

The circle is now complete

The Fast & the Furious steals from the original Point Break, so the Point Break remake steals from the more over the top Fast & Furious sequels. I give this a neutral for Edgar Ramirez, since he's a solid actor, but this will be a rental at best.

Watching this trailer, I was shocked at how expensive this movie looks. I thought this was some small remake considering mostly B-list actors, but upon checking the always reliable (Ha!) imdb, the production budget was $100M?!! Factor in maybe another $30M for marketing, this could be a huge tank job for WB.

I don't know anyone who is involved with this shitty looking movie. I thought we got over that X-Treme Sports Action movie phase 15 years ago.

This just looks horrible. The main characters look boring, the premise has been done to death and the remake aspect just makes everyone hate it more.

There is no way this movie makes any money at all.

Why??

I've said this before, I'll say it again. Why not just give this movie it's own title and make it stand on its own? Fast & Furious managed to do it. If I were a screenwriter I would want my work to stand on it's own, and would feel insulted if I relied on piggy backing on the success of past films. It's a weak way to generate ticket sales. It basically tells the consumer we don't want to win you over with this film, but use someone elses success to take your money. Pathetic. Sad part is it
