We were given our first tease of Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant back in July, and now comes the official full length trailer for his epic northern-western…

We’ve heard much in recent months about the production running over budget and over schedule, but by the look of those stunning visuals, Iñárritu’s choice to keep things raw and real has paid off big time. You can almost feel the cold seeping from these visuals, and it’s clear the director wants you to feel like you’re taking every arduous step along with these characters. The Leo Vs. Bear fight should be reason alone to see this film, and that’s just first act!

Here is the official synopsis

Deep in the unchartered American wilderness, hunter 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 tribes in a relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.  Inspired by a true story, THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker and Academy Award winner Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).

 

Aside from The Force Awakens, this is a close second on the list of upcoming films I’m most looking forward to seeing. If the finished product has even an ounce of what we’ve seen seen in the trailers, this will be one hell of a ride.

THE REVENANT will be released in Australia on January 7, 2016
