WATCH: Leonardo DiCaprio Attacks, is Under Attack in “The Revenant” Trailer
Alejandro Iñárritu’s follow-up to Birdman also stars Tom Hardy.
When America was still wild, explorer Hugh Glass was mauled by a bear and left for dead by the members of his expedition. Once he recovered, he spent the rest of the winter fighting for survival in the wilderness. This is the premise of The Revenant, Alejandro Iñárittu’s latest film. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Glass, who a press statement describes as being “guided by sheer will and the love of his family” to a kind of redemption.
If the trailer is to be believed, that redemption doesn’t come without a serious cost. Under a stunningly blue sky, DiCaprio seems to be fighting his way out of everything—bands of attackers, solitude, a bitter dispute with Tom Hardy. Come for the long, unflinching action sequences, stay for the bitter-tinged character disputes.
You can see the trailer below.
