Watch: First Trailer for 'Point Break' Remake Starring Luke Bracey

Point Break

"There are some who do not fear death, for they are more afraid of not really living." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for Ericson Core's Point Break remake, a new take on the cult favorite action heist movie from 1991 directed by Kathryn Bigelow, that starred Keanu Reeves. This new version is much, much cheesier and doesn't even look like it really pays homage to that film anyway. Luke Bracey plays Johnny Utah, and the guy he's after this time is played by Edgar Ramirez. The rest of the cast includes Teresa Palmer, Ray Winstone, Matias Varela and Clemens Schick. I wish I could say all this extreme action looks exciting, but it's wrapped around such cheesy dialogue, I can't help saying this looks pretty bad. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer for Ericson Core's Point Break remake, direct from WB's YouTube:

Point Break Remake Poster

In this 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. Point Break (2015), a remake of the Kathryn Bigelow action heist film from 1991, is directed by Ericson Core (of Invincible) from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, The Recruit, Ultraviolet, Street Kings, Salt, Total Recall Remake). Warner Bros will release the new Point Break in theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year. For more info, visit the film's Facebook page or official website here.

Another shitty remake. This looks so dull, weak story, and horrible casting. Blech!

Firefly15 on May 26, 2015


Bad, so bad

bestfriend on May 26, 2015


Wow I can't believe how bad it actually is.

blkstar on May 26, 2015


Agreed. The visuals are great, but the dialog makes me want to set fire to my ears.

Benjamin Hunter on May 26, 2015


set fire to my ears, band name. I CALL IT FIRST!!

Ryan on May 26, 2015


or sex tape

you've just broken the number 1 rule of the internet... never reveal your fetishes

Ryan on May 26, 2015


Revealing fetishes is my fetish, and this post is fulfilling it.

Benjamin Hunter on May 27, 2015


All the Fast and Furious films combined have better dialog than this crap.

Jordan Odinson on May 26, 2015


It just proves even more so how much more superior the original is and always will be. All the nice cinematography and action won't be able to save this turd.

Sascha Dikiciyan on May 26, 2015


Not even the cgi rock slide ??

Tester on May 26, 2015


So they've made the team into thrill seekers of every kind - can they not trust that one sport alone could be impressive enough? Awful casting too.

Mr Chatterbox on May 26, 2015


Kept thinking, nice grading, like I was watching a short film shot on a 5D, but then I remembered it was a remake of a film set in sunny California. I'll never watch this.

Carpola on May 26, 2015


This will be the Point where I Break my tv 🙂

Sempai on May 26, 2015


LOL...looks like a comedy from KEY AND PEELE. Oh well.

DAVIDPD on May 26, 2015


Some of those shots were impressive. Then, well, the dialogue began. A film using extreme sporting could have been made without being a "Point Break" remake. Certain parts of Hollywood have become incredibly lazy. This is a disappointment. But, I'm sure there's an audience for it and I hope they have a great escape watching this flick.

Quanah on May 26, 2015


Can't be all bad - Ray Winstone is in it.

tommyturner on May 26, 2015


Thats what i said.

Rock n Rollllll on May 27, 2015


What was this filmed on? It looks so cheap

steve on May 26, 2015


Bahahaha this is actually getting released to theaters? Are you kidding me? LOL TERRIBLE

Ty Webb on May 26, 2015


It's like the movie itself is channeling how unnecessary its existence is. I already can't picture a single actor in it, it looks so forgettably weak. Larger than life characters made that first movie a classic. Doesn't look like this has that or the fun dialogue. It seems like remaking stuff from only 20 years ago pisses off a lot of 30+ year olds and waters down the tastes of all the movie fans who are under 20. There's no reason for this movie to exist, except to further ruin my continually dropping opinion of Hollywood.

Jonathan on May 26, 2015


Nailed it. Thank you sir!

Sascha Dikiciyan on May 27, 2015


At least they still have president!

superultraboy on May 26, 2015


this looks stupid all the way,but did someone of you see fast and furious ? The onley difference they have well known actors,but everything in that movie is also cheesy and filled with cgi crap! Yes this is totally unneccesary,but if we delete all cheesy movies,this site wouldn't exsist!

ari smulders on May 26, 2015


Yet another remake from my childhood that wouldn't be able to wipe the original's ass. Assuming of course said original is a live being of some kind which defecates. I'm not sober.

grimjob on May 26, 2015


I hate hollywood. Why can't they just give it another name. Another remake of one of my childhood favorites down the drain.

tyban81 on May 26, 2015


Finally someone else who feels my pain. Totally agree!

Sascha Dikiciyan on May 27, 2015


Sascha, although I completely agree with you, why just NOT watch the damn piece of crap movie and simply continue to remember the original.. That's exactly what I am doing with Poltergeist, there is no freaking way I am ever going to watch the remake and will continue to remember how much fun I had watching that movie in a theater when it first came out

Tester on May 27, 2015


My thoughts exactly!

Brandon Moss on May 27, 2015


I never understood people that complain about remakes. Ok, so the remake is horrible, so what? How in anyway does that stop the original from still being great? Thats right it doesn't….

IamSlave on May 26, 2015


Dig the attitude.

Rock n Rollllll on May 27, 2015


It doesn't hurt the original, it just stops us from caring about going to the movies. Been there done that don't care.

Bill on May 27, 2015


Agreed. Why spend $20 to go see this when I would rather put the original movie DVD in at home.

theslayer5150 on May 27, 2015


Okay don't see the remake it's not like that's the only thing being made. Go watch great original films like Ex Machina, Black Mass, Inside Out, etc.

IamSlave on May 27, 2015


The point of the discussion is that some remakes can be done with the same spirit of the original, using contemporary themes and modern film making, to create a good piece of visual art. I thought the remake of The Italian Job was pretty good in spite of the sub-par acting, but it was a 30 year old movie and not a well known property, ripe for a new telling of the story. I don;t see this Point Break as having anything to do with retelling the original story, and the only similarity are the names Bhodi and Utah. Otherwise they would have been better suited in making this a "sequel", with Special Agent Utah's kid brother on the hunt for these extreme athletes.

theslayer5150 on May 28, 2015


Do you only go to the movies for remakes? Go see Mad Max, Tomorrowland, Avengers, etc. Lots of great movies out there.

IamSlave on May 27, 2015


Bro, I mean... Fucking sick! First the Entourage movie and now this dank shit. Extreme awesomeness.

Nielsen700 on May 26, 2015


No Red Hot Chilli Peppers! For shame.

MAWG on May 27, 2015


For Anthony Keedis, "that would be a waste of time".

Rock n Rollllll on May 27, 2015


Starring Luke Bracey. That just says it all. Swayze must be rolling over.

Master Miller on May 27, 2015


Haha.......screw it. I might go watch it, of course with the expectation that it will certainly not measure up to the original, but just for kicks.

Rock n Rollllll on May 27, 2015


In a couple years they`ll remake LOTR trilogy, Nolan’s dark knight trilogy, the harry potter series, they`ll remake all the last Oscar winners of the past 15 years in the next 3 years, so that eventually every film distributed from anywhere is all remakes, and all that there will ever be is a world of direct remakes. …I`m kidding lol…sorta. On a side note whether I knew the original existed or not this new point break film looks terrible, like a sci-fi channel original film.

Jorrell Mcdaniel on May 27, 2015


Poor Swayze.....his memory is now tarnished.

TheOct8pus on May 27, 2015


Nah...the original will live on forever, while this one will be forgotten shortly after hitting the Walmart $5 DVD bin.

theslayer5150 on May 27, 2015


Hollywood should just shut down and let someone else make movies.

Bill on May 27, 2015


If I were a small dinky theater, I'd show 1991's Point Break the same weekend this remake opens.

ragethorn on May 27, 2015


Heh - & probably financially trump the remake.

avconsumer2 on May 27, 2015


k... weird casting. Also, for some reason it seems to lose a lot, in my head anyway, in the switch from almost solely surf culture to "thrill-seeking elite athletes". (among other obvious things) Though, competing with a certain other December release (*cough, Ep. VII), I imagine WB wasn't expecting much with this one - kind of blindfolded, throwing a handful of darts at a wall and hoping something hits.

avconsumer2 on May 27, 2015


I'm going to go against the tide of naysayers here. While I love the original I think this can be a cool film. I like the extreme sports angle rather than just surfing and skydiving. The casting does seem a bit odd but I'll keep an open mind and give it a shot.

David Diaz on May 27, 2015


X Games meets Robin Hood. No thanks. I mean, the film makers do know that the term "point break" is a surfing term, right?? I'll probably be seeing Star Wars 7 again that weekend anyway.

theslayer5150 on May 27, 2015


oh look. another remake.

o3mta3o on May 27, 2015


"point break" is a surfing term yet I saw like two waves the whole preview. Buncha gumps as the leads. the action looks cool but just call it something else. Would you rather people be like "oh they're ruining a classic" or call it something new and have people be like "oh that was kind of like point break?"

JohnB on May 27, 2015


Totally agree. This could easily be something else....why steal the name and the characters? Why does everything need to be a franchise?

TheOct8pus on May 27, 2015


Agreed. Change of title and character names, with a cameo from Keanu and would be interested. Hell could of used the angle of copycats to involve Keanu a bit more.

Steven on May 27, 2015


lol - wow, you're absolutely right. I might not have even made the connection if it was titled differently and had different named characters. Hell, I might've even seen it.

avconsumer2 on May 27, 2015


The same with Total Recall, I really liked it, but everyone else I know complained it wasn't like the original, so it should have had a different name.

Bill on May 27, 2015


The only law that matters is gravity?? Haha!! Gravity isn't a law, asshole.

TheOct8pus on May 27, 2015


It's called Newton's Law's_law_of_universal_gravitation

DKz137 on Jun 2, 2015


Wow that poster is awful.

OfficialJab on May 27, 2015


I have no problem with the idea which hurts international market since that exist to hurt common person. However, I have a problem with a movie which must thicken its argument with murders. And that says, if you are against the existing financial global system you are murderer ... And that's just not true. So, I'm not sure about this ...

shiboleth on May 27, 2015


Patrick Swayze be rolling in his grave right now. And if this one goes up against Star Wars, it will not fair well. My favorite quote from the trailer: "These guys are extreme athletes....LIKE ME." BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What garbage.

RAW_D on May 27, 2015


ummm... that's a "NO" for me on May 27, 2015


This is not Crazy like Patrick Swayze, this is daisy like that dude Bracey. Deffo no. A cool movie that didnt need a remake.

ErrorSapiens on May 27, 2015


If anything, this will probably boost sales for the original Point Break, purely out of rebellion. #KeepinItSwayze

touhey on May 27, 2015


Worth a Red Box but that seems like it. First glance gives impression that casting could've been better.

LightningB on May 27, 2015


Did anyone Catch that the Actor who is the AGENCY BOSS is one of the original actors in the POINT BREAK movie? Brownie points for that... but honestly, this should have been named something else.

salocin411 on May 28, 2015


No, Just no. No No NO

smokie1973 on May 28, 2015


You know those times when someone in the room needs to be brave enough to say "this is a terrible idea..."

T. Hakeem on May 29, 2015


What's interesting is that, to me, the trailer itself was actually ok. If this had zero connection to the original, and stood alone, it would be genuinely intriguing. I think it could actually be a decent flick... but why do it as a remake?

T. Hakeem on May 29, 2015


Lol the actor who played Roach is in this flick...cheers!

wpgjets4ever12 on May 31, 2015


The original had a "California" feel to it, which I think made it . This looks like garbage. Also I saw a distinct lack of Anthony Kiedis and Flea.
