The first trailer for The Revenant, the upcoming mountain man Western starring Leonardo DiCaprio, has been released. Directed by the Academy Award-winning Alejandro Inarritu, the film is based upon the real-life Hugh Glass (played by DiCaprio), a mountain man in the 1820s left for dead by two companions after being mauled by a grizzly bear in modern-day South Dakota. Both historically and in the film, Glass survives and sets out on a revenge quest. UPDATE: To view the 2nd trailer for the film, visit New Trailer.
The Revenant was filmed in various Canadian locations that included both British Columbia and Alberta. Set for a December 2015 release, The Revenant also stars Tom Hardy and Will Poulter as the two men DiCaprio’s character seeks revenge against. The term “revenant” refers to a ghost or corpse that has returned from the dead to threaten the living. Here is the first trailer for the film:
