From Academy Award-winner Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel) comes his highly anticipated The Revenant. A bold and brutal tale of survival and revenge with what looks like a career best performance from Leonardo DiCaprio. What you may have noticed about The Revenant is how ruddy gorgeous every single scene looks, sure the unrelenting horrors of the wilderness are grim, but by jove it looks so pretty.
Believe it or not, Mr DiCaprio has yet to win an Oscar despite putting in multiple performances worthy of a gold statue. Could The Revenant change that? Only time will tell, but for now check out this insightful featurette that showcases a portion of the gruelling task in bringing this epic to the big screen.
Also starring Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, The Revenant arrives in UK cinemas on January 15.
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 González Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
