'Point Break' remake gets first trailer

Can Warner bank on fond memories, or is just another in a line line of unwanted sequels?

If you can believe it, it's almost a quarter of a century since the release of the classic Keanu Reeves/ Patrick Swayze bro-action flick 'Point Break', which means (at least to Hollywood) that it's time for a remake. Still, wiping away that snarling cynicism, the film looks like it could be a fun action flick. Take a look at the first trailer below.



Starring relative unknowns Luke Bracey and Édgar Ramírez and directed by former cinematographer Ericson Core, Warner Bros. are betting big on 'Point Break', gifting it a generous $100m budget - roughly 4 times that of the original.




But really is there an audience for the film, or is this another unwanted remake, just like last year's 'Robocop'? I guess we shall see when the film hits cinemas on Christmas Day.
