Alejandro González Iñárritu cleaned up last year at the Oscars with Birdman… by the looks of this trailer, his newest film The Revenant will be following in Birdman’s steps. I mean, let’s give Leo an Oscar already.
Set in the 19th century, this thriller tells the story of Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), a fur trader who is mauled by a bear and left for dead by his partner John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), who subsequently robs him instead of trying to help. Glass ends up surviving and sets out to enact revenge. The Revenant was inspired by a true story and the film was co-written by Iñárritu.
The Revenant hits theaters on Christmas Day.
