Fox has debuted the first trailer for Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted‘s surfing drama Chasing Mavericks. The movie centers on the real life relationship between the late surfing phenom Jay Moriarty (Jonny Weston) and his legendary mentor Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) as they embark on a quest to surf five-story tall waves known as “Mavericks”. The two form a unique friendship that transforms both their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing.
This looks like your familiar inspirational sports drama based on real life characters and there isn’t anything wrong with that if you are into these kind of movies. Personally, it looks like a pleasant movie you might want to rent for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Watch the trailer below, courtesy of MTV and let us know what you think! Chasing Mavericks opens October 26th.
