The first proper look at the new Point Break was unveiled last month, shortly after Warner Bros. showed off footage at this year’s CinemaCon event. But while we’ve seen the film’s two leads, the new poster shows off some more of the attitude (and the altitude).
This new version of the extreme sports criminals action-thriller finds Luke Bracey taking over the Johnny Utah role once occupied by Keanu Reeves, while Edgar Ramirez slips on the wetsuit as Bodhi, formerly played by Patrick Swayze. Once more, Utah is an FBI agent in way over his head, working undercover with a group of thrill-seekers who also like to pull off staggering crimes.
Director Ericson Core’s take on the story ups the stakes even higher, with the criminals not limiting themselves to basic bank robberies, but trying truly audacious heists that involve all sorts of different sports to carry them out. Although if we’re honest, they’re going to have to go some to match up with Dominic Toretto and the Fast & Furious crew. The poster suggests that the Point Break lot obey the laws of gravity, while Dom and co. whisk said laws into protein shakes and chug them down for breakfast.
Point Break, which also features Teresa Palmer, Ray Winstone, Delroy Lindo and Tobias Santelmann, lands in the US on Christmas Day and the UK on January 8, 2016.
