A fresh new trailer for three-time Oscar-winner and reigning Best Director champ Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s lasted film, The Revenant, debuted this morning. Many have pegged its star, Leonardo DiCaprio, as the de facto frontrunner for Best Actor. DiCaprio plays frontiersman Hugh Glass, who endures unimaginable grief (a/k/a a bear attack!) as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald, played by Tom Hardy. Unsurprisingly the photography by Emmanuel Lubezki looks remarkable.
Thoughts on the trailer (below), Leo, and the other possible categories The Revenant can contend in?
THE REVENANT comes to theaters limited release December 25 and wide in January 2016!
