Ending the Bourne trilogy with a jolt, director Paul Greengrass delivers the most widespread installment yet with The Bourne Ultimatum. Picking up where The Bourne Supremacy left off, with Bourne bleeding in Moscow, the action then finds us visiting locales in France, England, Spain, Morocco and finally the U.S. This was easily the most challenging map of the three to make, primarily because I almost tried to map the entire sequence in London's Waterloo Station and because once the action moves to Tangier, Morocco it was nearly impossible to find any of the locations used as streets didn't seem to exist and there is no Google street view in the city. Nevertheless, I try to make as much sense of all the commotion as possible to the point I was even able to locate one of the slight turns Bourne makes in New York while being chased by Paz »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Two pictures for the upcoming reboot of Point Break have been released, and there's altogether too much clothing involved. Luke Bracey (The Best of Me) is taking over Keanu Reeves's part as the new Johnny Utah, while Édgar Ramírez (The Counselor) is playing Bodhi, the part Patrick Swayze originated. The 1991 crime film has become a classic in its own right, and it's hard to tell if this remake, which features extreme sports rather than just surfing, will live up to the first film. Let's face it: it'll be really hard to top Swayze. »
The new film is shooting on four continents, including North America, Europe, South America and Asia, with stunts performed by the world's top 'extreme sports' athletes:
"...in 'Point Break', a young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists. Deep undercover, and with his life in danger, he strives to prove they are the architects of the mind-boggling crimes that are devastating the world's financial markets..."
Extreme sports will include surfing 70-foot waves, snowboarding, wingsuit flying, free rock climbing and high-speed motorcycle stunts.

The dialogue-free footage, with church bells chiming throughout, showed a blonde, smile-free Lawrence getting married and donning welder’s gear to design the Miracle Mop in the role of inventor-entrepreneur Joy Mangano, a single mother living in Long Island. Russell previously directed Lawrence in “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.”
Fox has set “Joy” for a Christmas Day release.

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

The remake nobody asked for is coming this Christmas with Point Break, a new approach to the 1991 action thriller of the same name that was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. The film has become an action classic, but that's not stopping Hollywood from trying to cash in on its legacy with a new version starring Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil) and Luke Bracey (The November Man). Now the first photos have been unveiled after some footage was shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and at least now we know that Ramirez surfs and Bracey runs. That's exciting, right? Here's our first look at Ericson Core's remake of Point Break from Warner Bros. Pictures: Point Break is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible), who is also the director of photography on the film written by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Street Kings, Total Recall). A young FBI agent, »

Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have revealed the first look at Point Break, the Ericson Core-directed remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 classic. Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez are the new Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, or at least the new Johnny Utah and Bodhi. Do they live up to the originals? Get your Point Break first […]

Check out the images below:
And here’s the synopsis:
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).

Hot on the the heels of the Warner Bros. panel at CinemaCon come these first couple of images from the Point Break remake. Ericson Core (Invincible) is the director and cinematographer, with Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah (the Keanu role from last time) and Edgar Ramirez stepping into the Swayze-sized Bodhi wetsuit. We're told the agenda this time has broadened into more extreme sports than the original had, but for the time being the stills are keeping it familiar with a foot-chase and a surfboard.Empire is at CinemaCon and reports from the WB panel thusly: "The Point Break reboot has gone for a portfolio of all-out adrenaline sports. Big wave riding, rock-climbing and dirt bikes were all present in the footage shown. However, the most impressive and quite likely the film’s major visual set piece is an incredible flight suit sequence that blows the one in Transformers 3 out of the sky. »
Like it or not - and 'not' appears to be the consensus thus far - the remake of Point Break is edging ever closer. The movie is set for release in cinemas later this year, with Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez leading the cast. Ericson Core is directing this time, and also in the ensemble are Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.
The plan with Point Break is to have it in cinemas this December, and Warner Bros has released the first two images from the movie. Inevitably, these don't tell you much more than the fact that extreme sports remain involved. They're also a reminder that Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze aren't in it.
Here are the pics...

Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have released the first Point Break images from director Ericson Core’s (Invincible) upcoming remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 film of the same name. The redo stars Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent who infiltrates a team of thrill-seeking athletes led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez). These images don’t reveal much, but they do seem to confirm that Core’s film leans heavily on the “extreme sports” world to bring the thrills to the big screen. Indeed, Core not only serves as the film’s director, but also the director of photography. Check out the photos below, via Warner Bros., and look for Steve’s reaction to seeing the first footage from the pic later on Collider. The film also stars Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, and Delroy Lindo. Point Break opens in 2D and 3D on December 25th.
