First Photos from Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s ‘The Revenant’ with Leonardo DiCaprio

With nominations for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu is already gearing up to jump into the Oscar race for 2016 with his upcoming film “The Revenant” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.  Distributed by 20th Century Fox, and currently scheduled for a Christmas Day release, Entertainment Weekly has obtained exclusive photos for the film.

Synopsis is, as per iMDB: The frontiersman, Hugh Glass, who in the 1820s set out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Adapted from the novel by Michael Punke, Iñárritu co-writes the screenplay with Mark L. Smith, who penned “Vacancy” and “The Hole.”  The film also co-stars Tom Hardy (hoping to score where his film “Locke” couldn’t this year), Domhnall Gleeson (terrific in “Unbroken” and “Frank” this past year), and Will Poulter (coming off “The Maze Runner”).

What do you think of the pictures and its chances for next year?
