First Look: Edgar Ramirez & Luke Bracey in 'Point Break' Remake

April 22, 2015

Point Break

The remake nobody asked for is coming this Christmas with Point Break, a new approach to the 1991 action thriller of the same name that was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. The film has become an action classic, but that's not stopping Hollywood from trying to cash in on its legacy with a new version starring Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil) and Luke Bracey (The November Man). Now the first photos have been unveiled after some footage was shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and at least now we know that Ramirez surfs and Bracey runs. That's exciting, right?

Here's our first look at Ericson Core's remake of Point Break from Warner Bros. Pictures:

Point Break is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible), who is also the director of photography on the film written by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Street Kings, Total Recall). 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 remake arrives on December 25th.

    The original Point Break was directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who created this amazing piece of pop perfection -- cheesy but really fun and with these gorgeously shot surfing and action sequences. The cinematography was really amazing, if you look at that film again. This remake seems like it will be a loser, like the remake of The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 or the remake of Miami Vice.

    Point Beak already had a remake: The Fast and the Furious 1 :-P. They just used street racing instead of surfing. Why remake it again?
