A new Point Break poster and surf action featurette
While the previously-released trailer for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Point Break remake de-emphasized the surfing aspect in favor of other extreme sports, a new featurette goes in-depth on the practical surfing stunts the filmmakers pulled off, with many of the stuntmen suffering real injuries to capture the realism. Check out the featurette below, along with a new surfing-themed Point Break poster in the gallery!
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.
The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.
The film stars Édgar Ramírez (Zero Dark Thirty, The Bourne Ultimatum, Carlos the Jackal) as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, November Man) as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (Noah, The Departed), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Sahara, Gone in Sixty Seconds), under the direction of Ericson Core (Invincible) from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Law Abiding Citizen).
Inspired by the classic 1991 hit starring Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, Point Break is scheduled for release in 3D and 2D theaters on December 25.
