Leonardo DiCaprio Fights For Survival In The New Trailer For THE REVENANT

Following the uproar received last year over his costume dramedy, Birdman, Babel helmer, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu's latest cinematic offering now comes through the reunion of Inception co-leads, actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy for the Holiday release of The Revenant. Author Michael Punke's 2002 book of the same name provides just the source material here for the compelling look now seen here with our actors starring as explorers in the late 1800's - one of them forged in the wake of near-tragedy, betrayal and harrowng survival.

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.

It's a piece of work that since deemed its author as "the most successful" according to Maxim last November, and judging by Iñárritu's reception, I don't have much reason to believe it shouldn't deserve the Oscar appeal it is currently generating. The film does, however, open on December 25 going up against films like J.J. Abrams's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ericson Core's Point Break remake and the 70mm premiere of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

Boy oh boy... Unless you're up for a quadruple-header, choose your destiny!
