Good morning cats and kittens! Speaking of Gerard Butler (and really, aren’t we always?), look what I have for you today…it’s better than Starbucks…a brand new trailer for Chasing Mavericks! Yay! *demented poodle dance*
It’s not drastically different from the other trailers, although there is some new footage. It is cut to skew more toward Jonny Weston’s character of Jay Moriarty. (Again, I’ve watched all of the trailers over and over for comparison. I'm a giver.) Also, as you might have guessed, I do not care how different it is. It’s a new trailer, 20th Century Fox has seen fit to give it up and I’m posting it, by Crackie!
The inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarty. When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is not only real, but exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to accomplish the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms both their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing.
Both Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted get directing credit. Chasing Mavericks which stars Gerard Butler as Rick “Frosty” Hesson, Jonny Weston as Jay Moriarty, Leven Rambin as Kim Moriarty, Abigail Spencer as Brenda Hesson and Elisabeth Shue as Christy Moriarty as well as Scott Eastwood and some of the best surfers alive, including Peter Mel, Zach Wormhoudt and Greg Long, opens in the US on October 26 (the LA premiere is October 18 – new red carpet pics! Yeah baby!) and on 2nd November in the UK. You can see the rest of our coverage at the links here and here..
