Ford On Film

Chronicles of a silver screen addict

The Revenant trailer is the manliest thing you’ll see all year

After hype, speculation, and a rather indecipherable teaser, the official trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman follow-up The Revenant has arrived. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a bear tracker left for dead by crew member Tom Hardy, the film looks as grim and violent as you’d expect from the man who gave us the downbeat fables Amores Perros and 21 Grams.

DiCaprio’s lack of Oscar wins is now something of a running joke and while the competition is sure to be as strong as ever come next year’s awards season, the intense acting shown just in the trailer suggests some hope for the actor. Given the acting quality of the cast (DiCaprio and Hardy are joined by Will Poulter and Domnhall Gleeson) and the recent success of the director, The Revenant has the potential to be one of the film events of the year.
