WATCH: Point Break remake - how many adventure sports can you fit in one trailer?

How many adventure sports can you fit in one trailer? That appears to be the question Warner Bros asked themselves when editing the trailer for the Point Break remake.

There are scenes of skydiving (regular and with wing suits), snowboarding, motorbikes, rock climbing, and stunts including the old jumping through the glass window routine and leaping from a cliff to the top of a cable car.

Not that it's not impressive.  While Kathryn Bigelow's beloved 1991 version starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze focused mainly on surfing and parachuting, this one ramps up the adventure with a myriad of sports.

The plot is similar with FBI agent Johnny Utah going undercover with a group of thrill seekers led by Bodhi in order to investigate a series of daring crimes although this time they traverse the world and not just California.

Point Break stars Édgar Ramírez as Bodhi and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo. It's slated for a Christmas Day release in the US and January 18th in Ireland.
