THE REVENANT: First Trailer For Iñárritu's Next Looks Stunning
Alejandro González Iñárritu follows up his Oscar winning Birdman with what looks to be his most ambitious film to date, the epic survival tale, The Revenant.

Based partially on the novel by Michael Punke, the film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as real-life 1800s frontiersman Hugh Glass as he is left for dead in the far reaches of the American Wilderness.

While I am often wary of the depiction of indigenous peoples in Hollywood movies such as this, there is no denying that the just released trailer offers some of the most breathtaking cinematography of the year. Iñárritu's man-behind-the-camera, the indomitable Emmanuel Lubezki, seems to not only be inspired by wide angle Westerns, but by Eastern epics like the medieval Marketa Lazarova and WWII nightmare Come And See

Whatever else The Revenant proves to be beyond visually stunning remains to be known... that is until its U.S. release on December 25.

If nothing else, the visuals are going to be awesome.

Oh man, that looks gorgeous.

I'm quite suprised. I thought that whole story will be revenge western with touch of thriller and DiCaprio vs. Hardy, but it looks that it will be much more richer than that. And some of these images... I expect intense atmosphere.

Looks raw and uncompromising, and as far as you can get from Dances With Wolves ( and all the better for it) definite must see!

That looks mighty tasty.
Is this the film that Iñárritu was going to shoot using only natural light?

From what I understand, and judging by how it looks, yes it is.

That fake horse is laughable. Almost as bad as the baby in American Sniper.

KurtJuly 19, 2015 11:41 PM

Disagree....go watch Seabiscuit to see how fake an actor on a horse can look.

I am not as impressed as I am supposed to be. for some reason. I understand it is technically wonderful because it is so diffcult, but why.....

KurtJuly 28, 2015 5:34 PM

because doing things this way gives a certain FEEL, which is often important...
