Warner Bros. pushed the release of its “Point Break” reboot back by five months on Tuesday, while also setting an opening for its new Rocky Balboa spinoff “Creed.”

“Point Break,” starring Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey, has moved back from July 31 to Christmas Day. The action film directed by Ericson Core has Bracey playing Johnny Utah, originally portrayed by Keanu Reeves, and Ramirez as philosopher-antagonist Bodhi, memorably played by the late Patrick Swayze in the original.

“Creed,” which is directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson and Michael B. Jordan, has been given a Nov. 25 release. The plot of the boxing film is a reversal of sorts, with Stallone’s Rocky training the young Adonis Creed (Jordan).

Aaron Covington and Coogler share writing credits on “Creed,” with MGM producing.
