Trailers from Hell: ‘Point Break’ is First Up for Kathryn Bigelow Week

Trailers from Hell: 'Point Break' is First Up for Kathryn Bigelow Week

It's Kathryn Bigelow week at Trailers from Hell! First up, it's Karyn Kusama discussing the trailer for 1991's "Point Break."

Kathryn Bigelow's first commercial hit is a visceral surfing/heist thriller that takes its title from the moment when a wave breaks as it hits a point of land jutting out from the coastline. Under such earlier titles as Johnny Utah and Riders on the Storm this was originally conceived to star Matthew Broderick and Charlie Sheen, with Ridley Scott directing. But Bigelow's Hawksian take on the material became a huge cult hit and is currently being developed (naturally) for an unneeded remake.
