Mavericks − Ahol a hullámok születnek
Egy hihetetlen igaz történet Jay Moriartyról, a valódi szörf- fenoménról. Mikor az ifjú Jay (Jonny Weston) felfedezi, hogy a mitikus Mavericks, a Föld egyik legnagyobb hulláma csak pár mérföldnyire van Santa Cruz-i otthonától, Frosty Hessonhoz (Gerard Butler), a helyi szörfös legendához fordul, hogy készítse fel őt a hullám meglovaglására. Ahogy Jay és Frosty nekifog, hogy végrehajtsák a lehetetlent, olyan barátság alakul ki közöttük, mely nem csak mindkettőjük életét befolyásolja, de ezáltal a Mavericks megszelídítése is egyre inkább többről kezd szólni a szörfözésnél.

Szerepléseivel több díjat is elnyert, pályafutása során Oscar-, valamint Golden Globe- és BAFTA-díjra is jelölték. A filmezés mellett televíziós sorozatokban is többször szerepelt: a CSI: A helyszínelők című drámasorozatban 2012 és 2015 között főszerepet alakított.
Elisabeth Shue was born in Wilmington, Delaware, to Anne Brewster (Wells), who worked for the Chemical Banking Corporation, and James William Shue, a lawyer and real estate developer. She is of German and English ancestry, including descent from Mayflower passengers. Shue's parents divorced while she was in the fourth grade. Owing to the occupational demands of her parents, Shue and her siblings found plenty of time to get into trouble in their suburban neighborhood, but Elisabeth soon enrolled in Wellesley College, an all-female institution which kept her out of trouble. During her studies, she found a way to make a little extra money by acting in television commercials. Elisabeth became a common sight in ads for Burger King, DeBeers diamonds, and Hellman's mayonnaise. In 1984, she landed a role in the _The Karate Kid (1984)_ (qv) as the on-screen girlfriend of 'Ralph Macchio (I)' (qv) and a role as the teenage daughter of a military family in the short-lived series _"Call to Glory" (1984)_ (qv). At this time, Shue got herself an acting coach and transferred to Harvard, where she began studying political science. She continued her acting work with _Adventures in Babysitting (1987)_ (qv), _Cocktail (1988)_ (qv), _Soapdish (1991)_ (qv) and _The Marrying Man (1991)_ (qv). Unfortunately, time was catching up with the impressive girl-next-door. Her brother 'Andrew Shue' (qv) had almost eclipsed her own fame by landing a starring role in the hit TV series _"Melrose Place" (1992)_ (qv). It was at this time that Elisabeth took a chance on a low-budget, high-risk project entitled _Leaving Las Vegas (1995)_ (qv), directed by 'Mike Figgis' (qv). Her gutsy portrayal of a prostitute mixed up with a suicidal alcoholic paid off as she was recognized with a Best Actress nomination at the Academy Awards that year. This was the turning point of her career. What followed was a barrage of film roles, including _The Saint (1997)_ (qv), 'Woody Allen' (qv)'s _Deconstructing Harry (1997)_ (qv), _Palmetto (1998)_ (qv) and _Hollow Man (2000)_ (qv).
Gerard James Butler (Paisley, Skócia, 1969. november 13. –) skót színész, jogász. Butler a skóciai Paisley-ban született, ír származású családban. Testvérei közül ő a legfiatalabb. Gyermekkorában másfél évet Kanadában töltött, majd szülei válása után édesanyjával visszaköltöztek Skóciába. A glasgow-i egyetemen szerzett jogi diplomát, majd egy vezető jogi cégnél dolgozott, amikor látta Irvine Welsh Trainspotting című regényének színpadi változatát, és ez meggyőzte őt arról, hogy hagyja ott a jogot, és próbálkozzon a színészettel. Londonba ment és néhány hónapig alkalmi munkákból tartotta el magát: Lego játékokat mutatott be és vízmelegítők eladásával foglalkozott. Steven Berkoff színész-rendezővel történt London Café-beli találkozása sorsdöntőnek bizonyult színészi pályája alakulásának szempontjából. Rövidesen részt vett élete első szereplőválogatásán, színházi karrierje a "Coriolanus"-szal indult. A filmvásznon rövid időre feltűnt A holnap markában című James Bond-moziban, hamarosan pedig főszerepeket is játszhatott, például a Drakula 2000 és az Attila, isten ostora címszerepeit. Nevét igazán ismertté a Joel Schumacher rendezésében filmre vitt Andrew Lloyd Webber-musical, Az Operaház Fantomja tette. 2007-ben egyebek mellett a Frank Miller képregényéből készült 300 című hollywoodi szuperprodukcióban volt látható I. Leónidasz spártai király szerepében.
Gerard Butler was born in Paisley, Scotland, to Margaret and Edward Butler, a bookmaker. His family is of Irish origin. Gerard spent some of his youth in Canada, but was mostly raised, along with his older brother and sister, in his hometown of Paisley. His parents divorced when he was a child, and he and his siblings were raised primarily by their mother, who later remarried. He had no contact with his father between the ages of two and 16 years old, after which time they became close. His father passed away when Gerard was in his early 20s. Butler went on to attend Glasgow University, where he studied to be a lawyer/solicitor. He was president of the school's law society thanks to his outgoing personality and great social skills. His acting career began when he was approached in a London coffee shop by actor 'Steven Berkoff' (qv), who later appeared alongside Butler in _"Attila" (2001)_ (qv), who gave him a role in a stage production of "Coriolanus". After that, Butler decided to give up law for acting. He was cast as 'Ewan McGregor' (qv)'s character "Renton" in the stage adaptation of [i]Trainspotting[/i]. His film debut was as 'Billy Connolly (I)' (qv)'s younger brother in _Mrs Brown (1997)_ (qv). While filming the movie in Scotland, he was enjoying a picnic with his mother near the River Tay when they heard the shouts of a young boy, who had been swimming with a friend, who was in some trouble. Butler jumped in and saved the young boy from drowning. He received a Certificate of Bravery from the Royal Humane Society. He felt he only did what anyone in the situation would have done. His film career continued with small roles, first in the "James Bond" movie, _Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)_ (qv), and then 'Russell Mulcahy' (qv)'s _Tale of the Mummy (1998)_ (qv). In 2000, Butler was cast in two breakthrough roles, the first being "Attila the Hun" in the USA Network mini-series, _"Attila" (2001)_ (qv). The film's producers wanted a known actor to play the part but kept coming back to Butler's screen tests and decided he was their man. He had to lose the thick Scottish accent, but managed well. Around the time "Attila" was being filmed, casting was in progress for 'Wes Craven' (qv)'s new take on the "Dracula" legacy. Also wanting a known name, Butler wasn't much of a consideration, but his unending tenacity drove him to hounding the producers. Eventually, he sent them a clip of his portrayal of "Attila". Evidently, they saw something because _Dracula 2000 (2000)_ (qv) was cast in the form of Butler. Attila's producers, thinking that his big-screen role might help with their own film's ratings, finished shooting a little early so he could get to work on _Dracula 2000 (2000)_ (qv). Following these two roles, Butler developed quite a fan base, an Internet site and began appearing on lists everywhere. Since then, he has appeared in _Reign of Fire (2002)_ (qv) as "Creedy" and _Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003)_ (qv) as "Terry Sheridan", alongside 'Angelina Jolie' (qv). The role that garnered him the most attention from both moviegoers and movie makers, alike, was that of "Andre Marek" in the big-screen adaptation of 'Michael Crichton' (qv)'s novel, _Timeline (2003)_ (qv). Butler played an archaeologist who was sent back in time with a team of students to rescue a colleague. Last year, he appeared in 'Andrew Lloyd Webber' (qv)'s musical, _The Phantom of the Opera (2004)_ (qv), playing the title character in the successful adaptation of the stage musical. It was a role that brought him much international attention. Other projects include _Dear Frankie (2004)_ (qv), _The Game of Their Lives (2005)_ (qv) and _Beowulf & Grendel (2005)_ (qv). In 2007, he starred as Spartan "King Leonidas" in the Warner Bros. production _300 (2006)_ (qv), based on the 'Frank Miller (II)' (qv) graphic novel, and _Butterfly on a Wheel (2007)_ (qv), co-starring 'Pierce Brosnan' (qv) and 'Maria Bello' (qv), which aired on network TV under the title, "Shattered". He most recently starred in _P.S. I Love You (2007)_ (qv), with Academy Award-winner 'Hilary Swank' (qv). In 2007, he appeared in _Nim's Island (2008)_ (qv) and _RocknRolla (2008)_ (qv), and completed the new 'Mark Neveldine' (qv) / 'Brian Taylor (V)' (qv) film, _Gamer (2009)_ (qv). His next films included _The Ugly Truth (2009)_ (qv), co-starring 'Katherine Heigl' (qv), which began filming in April 2008, _The Bounty Hunter (2010/I)_ (qv), _How to Train Your Dragon (2010)_ (qv), _Chasing Mavericks (2012)_ (qv) and _Olympus Has Fallen (2013)_ (qv). Butler is also a relative of rising animator and film director 'Mark Flood (III)' (qv).
