Let’s all root for Alejandro González Iñárritu. His film Birdman is nominated for an Oscar, and now he’s getting the auteur treatment for his next film, The Revenant. The first stills from the film, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, have been released, and they look good. Check them out in the gallery below.
The Revenant stars DiCaprio as a trapper in 1820 who wants vengeance for being figuratively stabbed in the back by someone he thought was his partner, played by Tom Hardy. Here’s more about the film.
Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is severely injured and left for dead by a traitorous member of his team, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). With sheer will as his only weapon, Glass must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald. Based on a true story, THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu (“Birdman,” “Babel”).
