Now playing in theaters around the country is director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant. As most of you know, the film is set in the 19th century and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a hunter left for dead by his compatriots following a bear mauling. Once he regains enough strength, he sets out for revenge. Loaded with breathtaking cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki, incredible action set pieces that make you feel like you’re in the movie, and brilliant performances by the entire cast, The Revenant is one of those special movies that should be seen in a movie theater on the largest screen possible. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Domnhall Gleeson, Will Poulter and Forrest Goodluck.
At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Forrest Goodluck, who plays DiCaprio’s son in the film. He talked about working with Emmanuel Lubezki (Chivo), how Alejandro G. Iñárritu offered him the role, what he learned making The Revenant that he hopes to take with him on his own films, what it was like working with DiCaprio and Hardy, and more.
