'Chasing Mavericks' Trailer is Gnarly, Bro!George Roush |
No way, dude! Gerard Butler just totally got paid to hang out at the ocean all day. Whoa. The Butster recently shot 'Chasing Mavericks' and now there's a brand new trailer out for the movie where Gerard Butler surfs and acts and acts like he's surfing.
Gerard Butler and Jonny Weston star in 'Chasing Mavericks,' the true life story of surfer Jay Moriarity, who tried to conquer the massive waves at Mavericks in Northern California. Did he succeed? Well, that's why they make movies, silly. To show us exactly what happened in real life.
CHASING MAVERICKS is the inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Jonny Weston). 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 (played by Gerard Butler) 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. Chasing Mavericks was made with the help of some of the biggest names in the surfing world, and features some of the most mind-blowing real wave footage ever captured on film.
Having been born and raised in Northern California and having gone to Santa Cruz growing up as a kid, this is one movie that looks to be a lot of fun to watch. There's nothing cooler than hot blonds and surfing in one movie. The only thing that could make it a masterpiece is if Gary Busey co-starred.
Check out the trailer below. 'Chasing Mavericks' crashes into theaters on October 26th. Bro.
