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!
  • bestfriend
    Bad, so bad
  • blkstar
    Wow I can't believe how bad it actually is.
  • Agreed. The visuals are great, but the dialog makes me want to set fire to my ears.
    • Ryan
      set fire to my ears, band name. I CALL IT FIRST!!

          you've just broken the number 1 rule of the internet... never reveal your fetishes
          • Revealing fetishes is my fetish, and this post is fulfilling it.
    • Jordan Odinson
      All the Fast and Furious films combined have better dialog than this crap.
  • 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.
    • Tester
      Not even the cgi rock slide ??
  • Mr Chatterbox
    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.
  • 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.
  • Sempai
    This will be the Point where I Break my tv :)
    LOL...looks like a comedy from KEY AND PEELE. Oh well.
  • 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.
  • tommyturner
    Can't be all bad - Ray Winstone is in it.
    • Rock n Rollllll
      Thats what i said.
  • steve
    What was this filmed on? It looks so cheap
  • Ty Webb
    Bahahaha this is actually getting released to theaters? Are you kidding me? LOL TERRIBLE
  • Jonathan
    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.
  • superultraboy
    At least they still have president!
  • ari smulders
    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!
  • grimjob
    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.
  • tyban81
    I hate hollywood. Why can't they just give it another name. Another remake of one of my childhood favorites down the drain.
    • Finally someone else who feels my pain. Totally agree!
      • Tester
        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
    • Brandon Moss
      My thoughts exactly!
  • IamSlave
    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….
    • Rock n Rollllll
      Dig the attitude.
    • Bill
      It doesn't hurt the original, it just stops us from caring about going to the movies. Been there done that don't care.
      • theslayer5150
        Agreed. Why spend $20 to go see this when I would rather put the original movie DVD in at home.
        • IamSlave
          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.
          • theslayer5150
            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.
      • IamSlave
        Do you only go to the movies for remakes? Go see Mad Max, Tomorrowland, Avengers, etc. Lots of great movies out there.
  • Nielsen700
    Bro, I mean... Fucking sick! First the Entourage movie and now this dank shit. Extreme awesomeness.
  • MAWG
    No Red Hot Chilli Peppers! For shame.
    • Rock n Rollllll
      For Anthony Keedis, "that would be a waste of time".
  • Master Miller
    Starring Luke Bracey. That just says it all. Swayze must be rolling over.
  • Rock n Rollllll
    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.
  • Jorrell Mcdaniel
    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.
  • TheOct8pus
    Poor Swayze.....his memory is now tarnished.
    • theslayer5150
      Nah...the original will live on forever, while this one will be forgotten shortly after hitting the Walmart $5 DVD bin.
  • Bill
    Hollywood should just shut down and let someone else make movies.
  • ragethorn
    If I were a small dinky theater, I'd show 1991's Point Break the same weekend this remake opens.
    • avconsumer2
      Heh - & probably financially trump the remake.
  • avconsumer2
    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.
  • David Diaz
    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.
  • theslayer5150
    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.
  • o3mta3o
    oh look. another remake.
  • JohnB
    "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?"
    • TheOct8pus
      Totally agree. This could easily be something else....why steal the name and the characters? Why does everything need to be a franchise?
      • Steven
        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.
    • avconsumer2
      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.
    • Bill
      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.
  • TheOct8pus
    The only law that matters is gravity?? Haha!! Gravity isn't a law, asshole.
  • OfficialJab
    Wow that poster is awful.
  • shiboleth
    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 ...
  • RAW_D
    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.
    ummm... that's a "NO" for me
  • ErrorSapiens
    This is not Crazy like Patrick Swayze, this is daisy like that dude Bracey. Deffo no. A cool movie that didnt need a remake.
  • touhey
    If anything, this will probably boost sales for the original Point Break, purely out of rebellion. #KeepinItSwayze
  • LightningB
    Worth a Red Box but that seems like it. First glance gives impression that casting could've been better.
  • salocin411
    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.
  • smokie1973
    No, Just no. No No NO
  • T. Hakeem
    You know those times when someone in the room needs to be brave enough to say "this is a terrible idea..."
  • T. Hakeem
    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?
  • wpgjets4ever12
    Lol the actor who played Roach is in this flick...cheers!
  • MaqueeStalker
    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.
