Now in theaters is the film Chasing Mavericks. My husband and I had the opportunity to see a trailer for the film a few weeks ago. All I can say is WOW! Seeing those monster waves on the big screen is amazing. It’s almost as if you are riding the waves along side the surfers (there is NO WAY I would do that – LOL).
If you are not familiar with the film her is a brief synopsis;
Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (newcomer Jonny Weston). When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is near his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to do the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about 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 wave footage ever captured on film.
The movie is Rated PG.
The film stars Gerard Butler, Jonny Weston, Elisabeth Shue, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin.
Here is the film’s trailer. If you are reading this via e-mail you can see the trailer here, http://bit.ly/X2pSLy.
It looks really good. The kind that keeps you on the “edge of your seat”.
