Well if one was not convinced by the first teaser, the full length trailer for The Revenant confirms that the film is a serious contender for Best Picture consideration. Much of the footage is just simply breathtaking. Some of the visuals are as stunning and as awe inspiring as anything we’ve possibly seen on film.
Of course I may be a bit biased. I am a huge fan of the western genre and this looks just incredible.
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).
