Point Break review – nature calls in this fantastically pointless remake

4 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kathyn Bigelow’s cult action movie is given a lifeless reboot as Luke Bracey goes deep undercover in a world of bikes, bank robberies and bad CGI

Hey: what if we could turn all those YouTube hits on extreme sports action into box office cash? What if we did a new version of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 action movie about a bank-robbing surfer gang, widened it to include loads of other extreme sports and made it pompously eco-conscious? These are the questions that evidently triggered this fantastically pointless remake, stuffed with humourless and self-important machismo. Luke Bracey is Zoolanderishly good-looking, sporting plenty of transfer-tattoos and as supple and expressive as a surfboard. He plays Utah, the extreme-sports fanatic turned undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a super-cool crew of extreme-sportsy people who rob stuff and then ride their bikes off the top of skyscrapers and pull the ripcords on their parachutes.

Ericson Core interview: Point Break, the importance of a Dp

Director Ericson Core talks us through how he want about shooting his remake of Point Break...

As a cinematographer, Ericson Core filmed movies like The Fast and the Furious, Payback, and Daredevil. When he became a director on the true sports story Invincible, Core remained his own director of photography. So for his second film, Point Break, he was still the Dp. Point Break filmed in 11 different countries with athletes performing extreme stunts in the most extreme locations. Luke Bracy plays Johnny Utah, an FBI agent going undercover to root out an eco-terrorist. Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) is still the leader of a group of athletes, but with more on their mind than robbing banks.

Here's how our chat with him about the film went....

Thank you for filming everything clearly so we could see all the stunts. As a Dp yourself, what are your thoughts on the »

Five things that made the original Point Break great

3 February 2016 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

What Point Break Gave Us

Arriving in cinemas on Friday is Point Break, a remake of the 1991 cult classic of the same name. The film stars Luke Bracey and Édgar Ramírez as Johnny Utah and Bodhi 2.0, and will once more see Agent Utah hunt down a group of criminals with a surfing background. This time however, the activity doesn’t stop at just surfing; this version has Bodhi and his group of followers attempting to complete the Osaki Eight, a series of ordeals that honour the forces of nature.

It twists things up from the source material and director Ericson Core was adamant when we saw him late last year that this wasn’t a remake, but rather a spiritual re-visioning. He voiced that it would feel spiritually the same, but other than the names of the characters and the use of ex-Presidents as disguises, this was a new animal entirely. »

‘Point Break’ review: “A huge misfire. Completely pointless”

2 February 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Point Break remake review: High-octane stunts do not a good movie make. Point Break remake review

There’s an argument that the remake of Point Break shouldn’t really exist – believe me, we’ve had it out here at Thn Towers everyday since the project was announced. 25 years have passed since the Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves original graced our screens, which, let’s face it, was nigh on perfect. Perfect script, perfect direction, bromantic action aplenty, great stunts, and one of the best Swayze performances of all time (bar Road House and Dirty Dancing of course). They say that it’s too soon. They say it ain’t right. They say the original is one of those films that should never be remade. Ever. They say, they say. This argument is irrelevant. This Point Break remake review will see it graded and examined on its own merit.

Fox Developing Murder Mystery ‘A Simple Favor’ as Movie (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has bought movie rights to Darcey Bell’s upcoming murder mystery “A Simple Favor,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The pre-emptive deal for “A Simple Favor” was closed Thursday and has not yet been set with a producer. The story has been pitched as being in the vein of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel “Gone Girl” and Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut “The Girl on the Train” — two best-selling thrillers in which a female protagonist disappears from a seemingly perfect relationship, part of the “domestic noir” genre.

“A Simple Favor” centers on three small-town characters: a mommy blogger, her best friend who disappears suddenly and the latter’s husband. The story includes betrayals and reversals, a dead body and the revolving question of who is duping whom.

Bell is a pre-school teacher in Chicago. The publication rights to “A Simple Favor” have been sold as part of a two-book to Harper Collins for »

The Girl On The Train Adds Laura Prepon

7 January 2016 5:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting tonight that Laura Prepon has been added to the cast of the currently shooting adaptation, The Girl On The Train. Based on Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel of the same name, the film has Tate Taylor behind the camera and Emily Blunt leading the charge in front as Rachel Wilson.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Wilson is the story’s protagonist and Deadline describes her as a “drunken divorcee who daydreams about the perfect NYC life of seemingly perfect couple Scott and Megan on her daily commute as she passes their house.” Trouble brews, however, when Megan goes missing and Rachel finds herself caught up in the mystery.

As for Prepon, she’ll step into the shoes of Cathy, the landlord and college friend of Rachel. Rounding out the supporting cast are Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson, Edgar Ramirez and Justin Theroux. Not a bad collection of talent, »

Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee & David O. Russell Lean on Music to Finesse Tales

7 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scores played significant roles in determining the use of source material in the three recent films from directors long known for their adept use of pop tunes: Spike Lee, David O. Russell and Quentin Tarantino.

Before any songs were selected for Russell’s “Joy,” David Campbell and West Dylan Thordson’s score was already in place; Tarantino’s musical coup was getting Ennio Morricone to score his first Western in decades — and the first full-fledged score for a Tarantino film — and having his actors sing. And as Lee says of “Chi-Raq,” “in reality, there’s only 35 minutes of score, the least amount of score I have used while working with (composer) Terence Blanchard.” (That would be 15 films).

“We started with a lot more score and have more score than in ‘American Hustle’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’,” says Russell’s music supervisor on his last four films, Sue Jacobs. “Every process is different, »

Will They Make Another Point Break Movie? Edgar Ramirez Has Thoughts

1 January 2016 2:47 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remakes of cult favorite films are a dicey proposition. You want to honor what fans love about the original at the same time you bring something new to the table with your update, otherwise, what the hell is the point? Thus far, fans and critics of the new rehash of the 1991.s bro-tastic surfing crime actioner Point Break have been underwhelmed by the latest incarnation, but at least one of the stars sounds sure that this won.t be the last we see of Johnny Utah, Bodhi, and the rest of the skydiving bank robbers. Before the movie opened on Christmas Day, Edgar Ramirez, who plays Bodhi, the character first brought to life by the late, great Patrick Swayze, talked with Variety about the remake and the future of the title. He said: I.m just the second Bodhi. I think there will be more. I have the feeling this »
