The first trailer has just dropped for The Revenant, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s follow up to Birdman. The director has proved his worth over the years with stunning films like 21 Grams, Babel, the stunning Amores Perros and, of course, Birdman, and now he’s back with a dark Western starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.
The first trailer is brutal, shocking stuff, but is filled with a haunting atmosphere that actually makes it scary and unsettling. The trailer is expertly created for maximum effect, and scenes are included which are guaranteed to shock and engulf the viewer in mystery. There’s also some fine and nifty camerawork on display, proving that The Revenant could be Inarritu’s 2015 Oscar contender.
This looks pretty fecking amazing.
The Revenant is written and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and the cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter and Paul Anderson.
The film arrives in UK cinemas 15th January 2016.
