Coming Attractions: The Revenant
Look at this up here! Isn’t it wonderful?
Alejandro González Iñárritu didn’t rest on his laurels after his Birdman swept up every award there is, and instead went to work on The Revenant.
El Negro‘s latest is based on the true story of the frontiersman, Hugh Glass, who in the 1820’s set out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling (IMDb).
The first teaser came out earlier today and it is glorious. There’s already Oscar buzz for Leonardo DiCaprio. Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter and Lukas Haas round out the cast. Check out the preview below.
Besides looking great and getting us all excited with very little dialogue, it definitely feels like an Iñárritu film, only on a much bigger scale (and budget).
So, what did you think of this teaser? Is it too early to call it one of the frontrunners of the 2016 award season? Will this be the one to break Leo’s Oscar curse? Will Tom Hardy get his first nomination? Can Alejandro and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki clean up two years in a row? Tell me in the comments!
