Much of the footage from Alejandro González Iñárritu’s upcoming adventure tale The Revenant has been confined to scant trailers and clips, but a new behind-the-scenes featurette blows the lid off the savage world of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Hugh Glass. DiCaprio, Iñárritu and Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki share their vision for bringing the American frontier legend to life in brutal yet beautiful fashion. As this behind-the-scenes look shows, the film looks absolutely fantastic in every conceivable way, and I for one hope that it leads to a resurgence in the popularity of adventure stories.
The Revenant will open in limited release on Christmas Day before expanding into more theaters starting January 8th. The Revenant also stars Tom Hardy, Domnhall Gleeson and Will Poulter.
Watch the behind-the-scenes featurette for The Revenant below:
Explore the different levels of the beautifully poetic and epic story of one man’s journey of survival. Go behind the scenes of this triumphant American story.
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. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
