As much as people complain about an endless chain of remakes, there are some stories that are so good they deserve to be retold in new ways. For example, there's Romeo and Juliet, about two star-crossed lovers from different families who get caught up in a history they wish they could escape. Or there's Point Break, about a bank robber and the cop who is brought in to take him down, only to learn that they are two sides of the same coin. Point Break has basically already been remade in the form of The Fast And The Furious, and we can all agree that worked out pretty great in the long run, but now it's officially getting a redo thanks to Equilibrium writer Kurt Wimmer and Invincible director Ericson Core. This new version stars Edgar Ramirez as the criminal Bodhi...

"Point Break" is no longer just about eco-terrorism and surfing. It's about eco-terrorism and surfing, motocross, base jumping, snowboarding, skydiving and all other manner of "extreme sports." The Ericson Core-helmed new reboot of the 25-year-old film -- which was originally directed by Kathryn Bigelow -- stars your new boyfriends Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez as Johnny Utah and Bodhi, respectively. "These aren't normal people sir," Bracey's character reports in this new 2-minute-plus trailer, the first look at the film. That's beautiful, Johnny. The action-crime flick will be out Christmas Day, Dec. 25. The 1991 original starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. »

Bank-robbing extreme athletes are back on the big screen in the "Point Break" remake trailer!
Heaps of money falling from the sky, skydiving, snowboarding, motocross, surfing (naturally!) and a few billion dollars of gold are just some of the things going on in this (possibly epic?) trailer.

The Point Break that you know and love, featuring Patrick Swayze as a surfer/criminal mastermind and Keanu Reeves as the undercover agent who infiltrates his gang, is getting a face-lift this Christmas with the remake. This time, Edgar Ramirez is in the part of Bodhi and The Best of Me's Luke Bracey is FBI agent Johnny Utah, and the first trailer will at least please the action junkies (or, uh, the stunts junkies). The plot is generally the same - Utah infiltrates Bodhi's gang, who use their extreme sport prowess to pull off high-stakes heists, but everything is just a bit more 2015. The stunts are bigger, the sports more extreme - as Keanu would say: whoa. »
As in the 1991 original, Point Break follows FBI agent Johnny Utah – this time played by Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe Retaliation) – as he goes undercover, snowboarding, rock-climbing, parachuting, and of course surfing his way through his latest investigation alongside suspect Bodhi (Zero Dark Thirty’s Édgar Ramírez).
Pushing familiar themes of brotherhood, betrayal, and… explosions, the remake's trailer feels like the original had a baby with The Fast and the Furious franchise – and you know what? We’re kind of okay with that.
Point Break is directed by Ericson Core, written by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium), and also stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Ray Winstone (The Departed). It plays in Cineplex theatres on December 25.

Originally written as a Cannes market closer for Variety’s last print daily, on May 19, this article has been updated through Tuesday, May 26:
Cannes – Five years ago, Cannes biz was powered by movies selling out worldwide. U.S. distribution pick-ups were something of a sideshow.
Now it’s the U.S. and China that are driving the train. One week after on-site trading at Cannes wound down, 2015’s edition still looks like a tale of four markets: U.S. and China, both galvanized by new players; Europe, depressed by eroding ancillary markets; arthouse, still a buyers’ market focused on star titles and ever more near completed films.
Trouble is, the U.S. is helping to make up for the weakness in the market but its growth is not yet at a par with the shortfall, doesn’t take up all of Europe’s slack, said Lotus Ent.’s Bill Johnson. »

That is some serious stuff. The new trailer for Point Break was released on Tuesday, May 26, and it looks even more extreme than the 1991 original. In the remake, Australian hunk Luke Bracey (The Best of Me) plays undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah, replacing Keanu Reeves in the classic role. His opponent Bodhi is portrayed by Edgar Ramirez, who replaces the late Patrick Swayze as the philosophical, thrill-seeking criminal genius. The teaser opens with a jetliner soaring through the clouds. Suddenly, two men hiding in the aircraft [...] »
The first full trailer for the Point Break remake has been released - complete with sky diving, rock climbing and surfing.
Gerard Butler was originally attached to play Bodhi in the project, but was replaced due to scheduling conflicts before production began.

So, Point Break has been remade. We all thought that it might just be a bad dream, but it looks like thry’ve actually gone and done it. The star-power is somewhat limited in this remake of the classic Patrick Swayze/ Keanu Reeves original (which was released in the summer of 1991), with former Home and Away actor Luke Bracey playing the role of undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah (originally played by Reeves) and Édgar Ramírez (The Bourne Ultimatum, Wrath Of The Titans) playing renegade extreme sports athlete Bodhi (originally played by the late, great Patrick Swayze). These are two potential star-making turns for the undoubtably talented actors. Oh, and for some serious character acting support, the likes of Ray Winstone (Noah), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Delroy Lindo (Ransom) are in the film too.
The original movie largely revolved around surfing and skydiving, but this new version adds to that »

In all the time we've been running Den Of Geek, it would be fair to say that Point Break has been comfortably one of the least popular remake stories we've ever run (well, that and Naked Gun). It would be fair to say that the new take on the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze-headlined original has not gone down well.
However, you never know, the film itself might turn out to be a treat. We've got here, at the very least, a first glimpse of it to see how it's shaping up.
“Still surfing?” “Every day.”
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”).

Will the new Johnny Utah at any time say, “I am an F! B! I! Agent!” Will Gary Busey show up for a surprise cameo? Will Danny Butterman approve? None of these questions are answered in the first trailer for the new Point Break, but go ahead and watch it anyway.This new version of the extreme sports criminals action-thriller finds Luke Bracey taking over the Johnny Utah role once occupied by Keanu Reeves, while Edgar Ramirez slips on the wetsuit as Bodhi, formerly played by Patrick Swayze. Once more, Utah is an FBI agent in way over his head, working undercover with a group of thrill-seekers who also like to pull off staggering crimes.Director Ericson Core’s take on the story ups the stakes even higher, with the criminals not limiting themselves to basic bank robberies, but trying truly audacious heists that involve all sorts of different sports to carry them out. »
"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: In this fast-paced, high-adrenaline action thriller Point Break, »

The first poster came our way earlier, and now we have the trailer for Ericson Core’s (Invincible) Point Break remake, and they weren’t lying when they said this was just inspired by the 1991 action classic. Apart from character names and some minor plot similarities, this differs in some really big ways from the original, especially with the Ex-President’s now recast as extreme athletes looking to upend the global economy. From an action point of view, this promises to be absolutely stunning, taking a page or two from Fast & Furious’ book and delivering some over the top set pieces, with the mid-air sequences looking absolutely spectacular. But it seems to be playing everything a bit too straight and serious, which renders some lines, especially Bodhi’s (Edgar Ramirez) proclamation of the only law he follows, as incredibly cheesy. I was incredibly sceptical of this when I first heard about it, »

Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey channel their best Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in the first trailer for “Point Break,” the remake of the classic Kathryn Bigelow 1991 actioner. The action film directed by Ericson Core has Bracey playing Johnny Utah, originally portrayed by Reeves, and Ramirez as philosopher-antagonist Bodhi, memorably played by Swayze in the original. The new film moves from the Southern California surf scene and goes international, with the first trailer teasing such extreme stunts as a skydiving bank heist, as well as action sequences involving snowboarding, base jumping and mountain climbing – all in the name of disrupting the. »

The original film starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze and revolved around an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of surfers moonlighting as bank robbers. This version is similar, except that the group of bank robbers are extreme sports addicts.
“Point Break” bows on Christmas Day.
