Trailer for 'Chasing Mavericks' drops


The trailer for the upcoming Fox 2000 and Walden Media film "Chasing Mavericks" has been released. The movie features Gerard Butler as Frosty Hesson who teaches a young, ambitious Jay Moriarity, played by Jonny Weston, to ride Northern California's most dangerous waves at Mavericks just off the West Coast that tower to gargantuan heights under certain conditions in the Pacific Ocean. The two forge a lifelong bond as Moriarity becomes one of the world's most renown surfers.

The Michael Apted and Curtis Hanson-directed film is scheduled to be released on Oct. 26.
