The first trailer for the POINT BREAK remake has been released starring Édgar Ramírez (Zero Dark Thirty, Carlos) stars as criminal Bodhi, while Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is Johnny Utah originally played by Keanu Reeves. Ray Winstone (Noah), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo. Surfing isn’t the only sport the guys play with this time around, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling are also heavily involved. I really hope they don’t turn the movie into an advert for extreme sports and take the focus constantly off the story, eventhough that’s kinda how it looks at the moment.
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 spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways. Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.
Renowned extreme athletes performing stunts in the film include surfers Laird Hamilton, Sebastian Zietz, Makua Rothman, Billy Kemper, Brian Keaulana, Ahanu Tson-dru, Ian Walsh, Laurie Towner, Dylan Longbottom, Albee Layer, Bruce Irons, Tikanui Smith and Tuhiti Humani; snowboarders Xavier De Le Rue, Louis Vito, Christian Haller, Lucas DeBari and Ralph Backstrom; skateboarders Bob Burnquist and Eric Koston; motorcyclists Riley Harper and Oakley Lehman; wingsuit stunt pilots Jon Devore, Julian Boulle, Noah Bahnson, Jhonathan Florez and Mike Swanson, and consultant Jeb Corliss; and free climber Chris Sharma, among others.
