The Revenant – Official Teaser Trailer #1 – Leonardo DiCaprio

the-revenantThe Revenant stars Leonardo DiCaprio (right) as frontiersman Hugh Glass, who in the 1820s set out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Inspired by true events, the film captures his epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, in a quest to survive, legendary explorer 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 due out in the UK on January 15th 2016, whereas it premieres in the US on Christmas Day, getting a limited release before its main release in January.

Also starring Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Paul Anderson, Lukas Haas, Brendan Fletcher and Brad Carter, it’s directed by co-written by Alejandro González Iñárritu, who triumphed with the Oscar and BAFTA-winning Birdman earlier this year. No doubt he’ll be a major contender for 2016’s awards season and while I watched the trailer on my phone, I can imagine how the film itself would look on the big screen!
