“THE REVENANT” Teaser Trailer: Watch Leonardo DiCaprio Fight For Survival
The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio finally has its first teaser trailer. Watch below!
The historical fiction film features DiCaprio as hunter Hugh Glass, fighting for survival on the American frontier in the 1800s. Attacked by a bear and abandoned by his compatriots, Glass stops at nothing to survive… and get revenge. Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Will Poulter co-star.
The highly-anticipated film has been in development since 2001, with Christian Bale and Samuel L. Jackson both attached at one point. Alejandro González Iñárritu came on board in 2011. DiCaprio didn’t officially join until last year, and production finally began last fall.
The movie was entirely shot using natural light, and DiCaprio, heavily beared and covered in dirty, is largely unrecognizable. Set to open on Christmas Day in a limited release before going wide in January 2016, expect the western-thriller to be a major player come awards season. Iñárritu, of course, is coming off last year’s success with Birdman, which earned him Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
DiCaprio seems to be the Academy Awards version of “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” But can the repeat nominee finally win with The Revenant? Check out the teaser trailer below, and tell us what you think!
