The first trailer for the upcoming ‘Point Break’ remake has finally landed and, as expected, it features a lot of blokes jumping off stuff.
The original 1991 movie is being remade, basically because Hollywood has pretty much run out of ideas so they have to re-do all the old classics.
In Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Point Break’, which starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, the bank robbing villains of the piece were a gang of surfers. In the 2015 version, the antagonists are still surfers but they can also skydive, snowboard, dirtbike and BASE jump. Plus, they love to party.
The new trailer shows the extreme athletes turned criminals generally causing trouble and diving off cliffs and jumping out of planes. Because why not?
As charismatic leader Bodhi says at the end of the trailer, “The only law that matters is gravity” and then he throws himself off a waterfall. Badass.
The new Point Break is set for release in the U.S on December 25 and January 8 in the UK.
