The buzz has been ridiculous for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman follow-up, The Revenant. Based solely on a handful of images and that first trailer, it’s one of my most anticipated upcoming films. Iñárritu’s wilderness epic stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter. The plot centers on the true story of trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) who 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.
Much has been made about the visual look of the film, which is lit naturally and it looks remarkable. Yahoo has provided some new looks via a handful of new images.
What do you think? Are you as excited as me to get a look at Iñárritu’s newest?
