Inspired by true events, The Revenant is an immersive and gut-wrenching cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.
Directed and co-written by Alejandro G. Inarittu, the film is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Michael Punke.
This trailer is sick! Very little is said; the viewer is left to experience the action. If this is any indication of how the movie will turn out, then I’m almost certain we are in for one hell of a ride when the movie hits theaters.
