Warning: The above trailer from Red Bull Media House and Garage Entertainment has no story. It's packed with epic shots: surfers riding giant slabs of water, skiers carving lines through virgin powder, and helicopters delivering athletes to remote landscapes devoid of other people. It's OK that the trailer lacks story, because the companies are promoting cinema screenings of feature-length adventure movies packed with stories.

The good news about the screenings is that the two companies have picked a dozen of the best action sports movies of 2012. The bad news is that the select screenings are only happening in Australia, from June 24 to November 18. You can find out more about the movies they picked, from Attack of La Nina to Strength in Numbers, on the Garage Entertainment website.
