Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s follow-up to his Oscar hit Birdman looks drastically different thematically from its predecessor, but equally as ambitious in scope.
Inspired by true events, The Revenant follows the fortunes of explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), a man betrayed and left for dead, and his subsequent attempts at survival.
The two-minute teaser trailer emphasises the film’s sweeping cinematography, epic landscapes, stark violence, high stakes, extreme tension and integral central performance by DiCaprio. The Wolf of Wall Street actor will have strong support from the likes of Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domhnall Gleeson and Lukas Haas, making this one movie to watch out for next year.
The Revenant will be released in the UK in January 2016.
