“I ain’t afraid to die anymore. I’d done it already.” These are the key words to the newest trailer for Academy Award winning writer and director Alejandro G. Inarritu’s (Birdman, Babel) latest The Revenant. The true story of legendary explorer Hugh Glass stars Tom Hardy, Domnhall Gleeson and Leonardo DiCaprio playing the main role of Glass. We get a little more to sink our teeth into with this first full length trailer as opposed to the earlier teaser and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Riveting and intriguing, I can definitely see some Oscars in this film’s furute; one for Leo perhaps?
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).
The Revenant is scheduled to be released on December 25th, 2015.
