First 'Point Break' Remake Trailer Pulls a 'Fast & Furious'
Our first look at the film -- from director Ericson Core, the cinematographer for the first "Fast and Furious" movie -- takes a page from that franchise's playbook in terms of delivering a crime thriller with crazy, adrenaline-fueled action scenes. Unlike the "Fast & Furious" films, this remake seems to have a very serious tone as FBI Agent Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) struggles to take down a team of Xtreme athletes-turned-crooks lead by Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez).
In between shots of the bad guys literally skydiving through piles of money and jumping off cliffs without parachutes, the trailer drops uh-maz-ing bits of dialog -- like this one from Agent Utah:
"I believe that, like me, the people behind these robberies are extreme athletes... Using their skills to disrupt the international financial markets."
There is life before, and life after, that line.
"Point Break," which also stars Teresa Palmer, hits theaters Christmas Day.
