First look at Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Inarritu's The Revenant

01.21.2015

With BIRDMAN still reveling in Oscar nominations, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is already hard at work on his next film, THE REVENANT. This is the film that may have caused Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to drop out of Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic and SUICIDE SQUAD, respectively. Lest you think that Inarritu is returning to the same contemporary dramas he was known for before BIRDMAN like AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS, and BABEL, think again. THE REVENANT, based on a true story, is going to be another unique cinematic experience.

Shooting this month in Calgary (average nighttime low: 9 degrees) the writer-director has partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to tell the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), an American fur trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s. After being mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead, Glass made a heroic 200-mile trek back to civilization to find the men who abandoned him in his time of need, played by Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domnhall Gleeson.

Working with acclaimed GRAVITY cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, Inarritu is only shooting for a few hours each day as he has committed to only using natural light and physical locations untouched by modern development to make THE REVENANT look as realistic as possible. With such a fine group of actors, I have no doubt we will be in for something amazing.

Production is going to stretch over the next three months, so I expect we will see several more images in the near future, but it is the reunion of Hardy and DiCaprio for the first time since INCEPTION that is bound to make this something special to see. Both actors are known for their intense work ethic so this should be good.

THE REVENANT opens in theaters on December 25, 2015.

IS THIS A REMAKE??

Isn't this a Remake of "Man of the Wilderness" with Richard Harris & John Huston? Sounds like the same story to me. The original was directed by Richard Safafian in 1971, who also directed Vanishing Point the same year.

Well it's based on a true story, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was put to film more than once. I don't think multiple films based on the same true story count as remakes though. We'd be calling a lot more movies "remakes" if that was the case.

I'm confused. The cast came into the restaurant I was working at a month ago, so I thought shooting location was in Vancouver.

Leonardo DiCaprio is a prime example of doing more with less. No side burns, no cheek hair, scraggly genital-style wiry whiskers where there is facial hair...As a guy with patch, uneven facial hair and pretty terrible side burns, Leonardo DiCaprio gives me hope.

Can't wait.

I'm so excited for this movie. I remember when I was younger I read a book called "Hugh Glass, Mountain Man" by Robert M. McClung. I thought to myself that this would make a great movie. It was actually around the time "Ravenous" came out and like what "Pied Piper" said below, if the movie has the same tone as Ravenous it would be awesome. This year is becoming better and better with all these amazing movies coming out.

Just keep getting more jealous of dicaprio. First he makes a 2 minutes casino commercial and banks 10 mil, and now he gets to work Inarritu on an awesome sounding film for a "few hours" a day

Revenge flick in pioneer times? I like it. Ravenous was set after the Civil War but if this movie is anything close to Ravenous (in look and tone), then I'm down for it.
