This isn’t your parents’ Point Break. The first trailer for Warner Bros.’ remake of the 1991 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze classic looks 100 percent serious with wilder extreme sports for the gang and far fewer rubber president masks than Kathryn Bigelow’s original feature. In this glimpse, there’s rock climbing, wingsuiting, and casual motorbiking…away from a rock slide.
The basic plot details sound familiar enough: Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) is a young FBI agent tasked with infiltrating a group of thrill seekers, led by Bodhi (Édgar Ramírez), whom the feds suspect are pulling off crazy crimes. “Crazy” like taking a Walter White-like block of money from a plane, only to break the bands and make it rain on a third-world village. Don’t worry: It appears the visors on the crew’s helmets have presidential visages.
Point Break is directed by Ericson Core, based off Kurt Wimmer’s script, and is scheduled for a limited release on Dec. 25, 2015, before a wide release.
