WATCH: ‘Point Break’ Reboot Trailer

The antagonists in the 1991 version of 'Point Break' were surfers and skydivers; the reboot seems to feature additional extreme sports.    Warner Bros. Pictures/YouTube

Production house Alcon on Wednesday released the first trailer for its reboot of the 1991 movie Point Break. The new film stars Edgar Ramirez (as Bodi) and Luke Bracey (as Johnny Utah) and will hit theaters on Christmas Day 2015.

The 1991 original, starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze and directed by Kathryn Bigelow, was about an FBI agent who infiltrates a group of surfers moonlighting as bank robbers. If the new trailer is any indication, the 2015 film appears to skew more extreme—featuring free-solo rock climbing, BASE jumping, wingsuit flying, and motorbiking, in addition to skydiving and surfing, which were the main activities of the antagonists in the original.
