The ‘Point Break’ remake now has its first trailer, which was released online on Monday night.
- Tom Hardy Stars Opposite Tom Hardy In New 'Legend' Trailer
- George Clooney Appears In New Trailer For Disney's 'Tomorrowland'
- The New 'Jurassic World' Trailer Is Suitably Dramatic
First released back in 1991, the original film tells the story of an FBI agent, who goes undercover to try and get to the bottom of a string of robberies, potentially being committed by a group of surfers.
The remake casts Edgar Ramirez in the main role of Bodhi, originally played by Patrick Swayze, while Luke Bracey takes on Keanu Reeves’ part, Johnny Utah.
However, while the new trailer looks like it’s put a modern twist on the cult classic, it seems that not everybody is thrilled to see that it’s being re-made, and Twitter users have not held back in voicing their disdain.
The new Point Break remake trailer solidifies that 'Hollywood' has zero backbone.— Alex Mathers (@MoonApe) May 27, 2015
Things I'd rather watch than a Point Break remake:
1) a well constructed barrel fire,
2) dogs swimming,
3) old relatives trying to juggle.— Kaleb Horton (@kalebhorton) May 27, 2015
I love the movie Point Break but I've always wondered, "Would this be better if the leads had no charisma?" I'll find out this Christmas!— Max Silvestri (@maxsilvestri) May 27, 2015
There are thousands of amazing scripts, sitting on desks, not being made by studios.... yet somehow we got a reboot of "Point Break".— Jesse Cox (@JesseCox) May 27, 2015
The Point Break trailer looks as horrific as expected. You can't remake perfection.— Richard James (@richjamesuk) May 27, 2015
Point Break remake looks devoid of all the things that made the original such a mad classic.— Martyn Conterio (@Cinemartyn) May 27, 2015
I just watched the Point Break trailer.
Extreme athletes- what the hell! It's pointless remaking a movie that was already so perfect.— hattie (@phanosaurusrex) May 27, 2015

Point Break remake looks god awful. Original is $5 on blu-ray. Make the right choice.— Joey Esposito (@joeyesposito) May 26, 2015

That's about it.— Chris Stuckmann (@Chris_Stuckmann) May 27, 2015
The best thing about the new Point Break movie is that you don't have to watch it and the old Point Break movie will still exist.— David Barnett (@davidmbarnett) May 27, 2015
New Point Break trailer, good parts: action, cinematography.
Bad parts: any time anyone talks.May 26, 2015
Overall, I didn't hate the Point Break trailer as much as I thought I would but it still wasn't a good trailer imo— Colin (@duckisgod) May 26, 2015
So… yeah. You can look forward to that one hitting cinemas later this year.
Alongside Edgar and Luke, British actor Ray Winstone plays Oscar nominee and ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner Gary Busey’s character, Angelo Pappas, while Teresa Palmer will play Tyler Endicott.
‘Point Break’ will get its UK cinema release on 25 December 2015.
