The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® victor Alejandro G.

During award season this year, “Birdman” director Alejandro González Iñárritu and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki escaped to remote areas of Calgary for their latest collaboration, “The Revenant“. But Glass survived – and, according to the film, vowed revenge against the men who had betrayed him, including his buddy John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy).

Leo has been nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars three times, for The Aviator, Blood Diamond and The Wolf of Wall Street.

This 19th century western thriller tells story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), a fur trader who is mauled by a bear while out in the wilderness.

20th Century FOX has released the official trailer for The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio. In Michael Keaton’s place, our Inarritutian hero is now played by Leonardo DiCaprio beneath a mountain of hair and beard. Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, and Will Poulter also star in the film.

The Revenant comes to theaters on December 25, which means, yes, the Oscar buzz begins now.
