Point Break (2015) and Cop Car Trailer
Earlier this week I posted a trailer for the new Keanu Reeves thriller, Knock Knock. And as it turns out, Reeves is having one of his earlier career classics being remade. Inspired by the 1991 crime thriller of the same name, Point Break hits theaters this Christmas Day with a large cast of unknowns. Aussie actor Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) stars as an FBI agent Johnny Utah with a knack for extreme sports. And after a rare breed of high octane criminals devastate the financial markets with a string of mind-blowing heists, Utah must infiltrate their group and put an end to their antics. The stunts and action sequences look pretty insane, which makes me wonder why Point Break is holding off until Christmas rather than cashing in on the summer crowd.
Kicking off its festival run as a member of this year's Sundance class, Jon Watts' newest thriller looks pretty intense. Cop Car stars Kevin Bacon as a dirty cop whose squad car is stolen by a thrifty pair of ten year olds who find themselves involved in a much bigger predicament. Early reviews out of Sundance were heavily positive and you'll want to keep an eye out for Cop Car when it makes its way to theaters this August.
