When the name Alejandro González Iñárritu came up just a year ago, many people said “who?”. But then Birdman came out and he quickly became one of those directors where his next project was being eyed like a hawk. Now you think it would be incredibly difficult to assemble another stellar cast like Iñárritu did for Birdman, and although the list just isn’t as big, the names headlining his next film The Revenant are just as, possibly even more exciting.
A western/thriller type adventure movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy (among others), are you intrigued yet? Just like me, you probably don’t need to see a trailer to be completely sold on the film, but of course we want a trailer anyway! And luckily for us, it’s just been released.
Killer, just killer. But quite honestly, what else is expected? An Oscar winning director teaming up with two actors who will finish their careers with plenty of awards and accolades to their name, The Revenant is one of those films that’s just on another level. We’ve seen very little on the actual film up until now and all the secrecy really paid off for this trailer. It looks beautiful and intense and just sheer greatness, really. I love both survival and revenge stories and now that I get one with the two blended together featuring such names like Iñárritu, DiCaprio, and Hardy – pff, enough said.
