A trailer was just released for the upcoming film by Alejandro González Iñárritu titled ‘The Revenant’. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, and looks absolutely fucking awesome! I sense this film getting some Oscar attention when it releases later this year. Here is the official synopsis for the film followed by the trailer.
“Inspired by true events, “The Revenant” is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. “The Revenant” is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (“Birdman,” “Babel”).”
I don’t know about you guys, but i am super excited for this film. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Birdman, but this trailer sold me on the film. It looks gritty, intense and with the addition of Leonardo DiCaprio you cannot help but get excited for this movie.
‘The Revenant’ releases in the US on December 25th, and in Australia on January 7th.
