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. In Theaters October 26, 2012.
Staring: Gerard Butler, Jonny Weston, Elisabeth Shue, Abigail Spencer, Leven Rambin
The music of the film is derived from the soundtrack-taking place in a time of rock n’ roll (the 90s) in which some of the best Alternative Rock was recorded and released. Featured artists include Mazzy Star, Sponge, The Lemonheads, Matthew Sweet and more… available digitally starting on October 23rd and on CD on November 19, 2012.
I love a well made inspirational movie. Even more so, when I know the movie is based on a true story. This is one I’m sure to be seeing on the big screen. I can also say – I’m also sure to be purchasing and downloading the soundtrack. A lot of people say when it comes to music, the 80’s rule, but for me it’s all about the 90’s.
