I’ve long-since been a huge fan of Leonardo DiCaprio, which is why I’ve been perplexed by the fact that he’s never had the opportunity to accept an Academy Award for his acting efforts even though he’s been the main star of many a classic over the years. This might all change with the release of the brand new epic The Revenant. Here’s what 20th Century FOX had to say about it:
Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
Damn… sounds and looks like it’s going to yet another amazing movie starring Leo when it is released in December this year.
