The second trailer for The Revenant is here, and its packed with more violence, betrayal, and thrills. Where the first trailer focused on visual storytelling paired with DiCaprio’s tense breathing, this one features more dialogue between the characters.
This true story centers on Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) who is left for dead after a bear attacking, and seeks revenge on his compatriots, who’s betrayal also cost him the life of his son. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu wanted to give this revenge story more personal, and decided to add Glass’s son Young Hawk. As we see in the trailer, the tragic loss becomes the driving force for revenge.
Tom Hardy is featured more in this trailer as the ruthless John Fitzgerald. Can I just express for a moment how exciting it’ll be to see some high caliber actors in Hardy and DiCaprio going at it? Its just one of the many exciting things to look forward to in this trailer.
We also have our first look at Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, but its just briefly. I’m intrigued to see where they fit in. Finally, we get to see a bit of the bear mauling attack that left Glass nearly dead. The sequences looks to be more graphic and violent than anyone of us anticipated.
Check out the second trailer below, and let us know your reaction.
Deep in the uncharted 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 Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.
