Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have released a new Point Break trailer for director Ericson Core’s (Invincible) remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film of the same name. The film stars Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent who infiltrates a team of thrill-seeking athletes led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez).
This is an absolutely solid action trailer, and the film looks like a blast, it just doesn’t look anything like Point Break. For die hard fans of original movie, that might be off-putting, but it definitely looks like Core’s take on the material has a shot at standing on its own as a thrilling caper. The new trailer boasts some impressive extreme stunt work, which I can’t wait to see on the big screen, but Point Break‘s real secret weapon is Ramirez who is endlessly charming, but hasn’t yet found his footing as a leading man in American films. Hopefully this will be the film that takes him to that next level.
Check out the new Point Break trailer below, and scroll down for a new set of posters. The film also stars Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Point Break opens in 2D and 3D on December 25th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Point Break:
In Alcon Entertainment’s fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller “Point Break,” a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar 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.
The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by extreme athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.
