DiCaprio’s The Revenant – Intense New Trailer

Leonardo DiCaprio's The Revenant New Trailer

Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy have gone frontiersman feral in this new trailer for The Revenant, an intense wilderness thriller from Alejandro González Iñárritu, the director of Birdman. Also for the ladies, DiCaprio has never worn a more cuddly outfit.

Inspired by true events, this looks to be an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival. Be warned, the trailer, while brilliant, does lay out the entire story, spoiling pretty much everything significant up to the final showdown.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In 1822, during an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, a legendary explorer (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, he endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, the explorer must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

Adapted from the 2003 novel of the same name. The director and cinematographer of the Oscar-nominated Birdman are reteaming here, and they filmed The Revenant in a similarly ambitious way. The shoot was an incredible 9 months, filmed in sequence (highly unusual on a production like this), with all-natural light, and they spent a significant amount of each day getting to beautiful but difficult to access locations.

The Revenant is released 25th December in the US, 15th January in the UK. This creative team is on fire, and now they have DiCaprio vs Hardy to work with.
