Lori Petty: new Point Break "dumbest thing I've ever heard"

14 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Point Break star Lori Petty is not a fan of the incoming remake. Er, that would be an understatement...

There's not a huge groundswell of support in place so far for the remake of Point Break that's being released into cinemas this December. The unveiling of the first trailer for the film didn't really help in that regard either.

Now? One of the cast of the original film, Lori Petty, has added her voice to those of the dissenters. Petty played Tyler in the original movie, and she said to The Hollywood Reporter of the remake that "I think it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".

"Really? Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Kathyrn Bigelow - what are you gonna do? What are you thinking? Stupid!".

Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez headline the new movie, for director Ericson Core. Petty, for one, hasn't even watched the trailer for it. "It's the most »

Veep's Timothy Simons Heads For Gold

14 June 2015 11:37 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Although he’s primarily known for comedy on TV screens as the endlessly annoying political wonk Jonah Ryan on Veep, actor Timothy Simons has been enjoying a run of dramatic work in cinemas. That is set to continue with him joining the cast of Stephen Gaghan’s Gold, which stars Matthew McConaughey.The film, which has a script from Patrick Massett and John Zinman, tells the story of the 1993 Bre-x Corporation mining scandal. The plot follows a rough-around-the-edges prospector Kenny Wells (McConaughey) who stumbles upon one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. Which, you may not be surprised to learn given the word “scandal” before, turned out to be bogus. Simons is aboard to play a Wall Street banker who must leave his cushy corporate surroundings and travel to the jungles of Borneo to assess the company run by Wells and his geologist partner, »

Point Break star Lori Petty slams reboot: "That's some stupid sh*t right there"

14 June 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Point Break star Lori Petty has slammed the film's reboot, saying, "That's some stupid sh*t right there".

The actress, who played Tyler in the 1991 original, told The Hollywood Reporter that she wasn't impressed with the thriller's remake.

"I think it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard," she said. "Really? Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Kathryn Bigelow - what are you gonna do? What are you thinking? Stupid!"

Petty continued: "Somebody tweeted this really cute picture of me [from the film], and it said, 'What's this pig board piece of sh*t?' which is what I say to Keanu, but it was about the new movie. I'm like, 'Seconded'.

"I got a phone call from my manager: 'Why did you diss the new Point Break?' Because that's bullsh*t! That's some stupid sh*t right there!"

Petty also said that she still hasn't watched the trailer for the reboot, saying: "No, I can't do it. »

‘London Has Fallen’ Grabs 2016 Release Date That ‘Point Break’ Should Have Taken (Analysis)

12 June 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Hollywood doesn’t seem very afraid of Alcon’s “Point Break” remake, which will be distributed by Warner Bros. later this year. In the past two weeks, Quentin Tarantino‘s “The Hateful Eight” and the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg comedy “Daddy’s Home” have joined the already-crowded Christmas Day frame currently occupied by “Point Break,” a movie rumored to cost $100 million-plus that doesn’t boast a single major movie star, no offense to the wildly talented Edgar Ramirez. Christmastime always offers a pile-up of new releases because so many people go to the movies over the holidays, and each »

Legendary Pictures is developing a movie based on the life of the late Roberto Clemente, the first Latino inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Legendary has acquired life rights from Clemente’s family and movie rights to David Maraniss’ biography “Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero.”

'Point Break' Remake Highlights a Problem with Today's Blockbuster Films & No, It's Not the Story

29 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The problem with the new Point Break remake has nothing to do with your inability to grow-up. It's doing nothing to your childhood unless you still identify with a man and his mullet. Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 original is still a great film for those of us that saw it when it was released and the fact it was remade into The Fast and The Furious ten years later and is now being remade just shy of 25 years after its original release simply means they're looking to bring a similar story to a new kind of audience, and I'm actually interested in the story they are aiming to tell. As was evident in the trailer and described in the film's plot synopsis, the gang of criminal rogues led by a man named Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) are killing whoever may be in their way toward "liberating" the world's riches, sending the global economy into a tailspin. »

Point Break Gets Reimagined in New Featurette Celebrating The Extreme Stunts

28 May 2015 6:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now that we finally got a look at the Point Break remake with the first trailer, it's time to go behind the scenes of the extreme stunts, including big wave surfing and wing suit gliding, and how they're re-imagining Katherine Bigelow's beloved 1991 film. Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for the remake spotlighting the film's radical approach to stuntwork and the impressive team they assembled to pull it off. Much like the trailer, I think everything shown here looks absolutely awesome, it just doesn't look a damn thing like Point Break. The tone is so serious, the color palette so desaturated - it's hard to see any of the original film's DNA here. However, it really does look like a fine action film, and the stunts they're showing off in this featurette seem pretty incredible, I just think it might have been better serviced with a different title that »

The laws of gravity are broken in first trailer for the rebooted ‘Point Break’

28 May 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Reboots, reboots, and more reboots.

The latest one is a remake of the 1991 classic Point Break with the new version keeping the same name. Instead of Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, we have Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey; and instead of director Kathryn Bigelow, there is Ericson Core.

If this film wasn’t a remake of a film, it may have a chance, but judging from the first trailer, it looks like it wants to be something different and modern so badly. The action is hokey and it looks like a poor knock-off of Fast & Furious or a Dwayne Johnson movie, and it doesn’t help that either of the lead isn’t that big of a name.

In this version, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez).

'Point Break' Remake Trailer Throws a Ton Of Money Out Of A Plane

27 May 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

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. »
