Alejandro G. Iñarritu always directs powerful films ripe with emotional drama. Emmanuel Lubezki always opens up the world to a new visual sense with his expansive cinematography. Leonardo DiCaprio always brings a relentless intensity to his characters. Based on the new clip from “The Revenant” above, it would seem these three are going to deliver once again on all these trademarks in the highly anticipated wilderness adventure.
The clip shows DiCaprio’s character Hugh Glass as he is ambushed in his sleep. In search of safety, he hops right up on horseback and fights off an army. It seems like nothing safe will come his way as he rides off a cliff.
“The Revenant” comes out December 25 in select theaters and nationwide January 8. Watch the clip below, via IGN.
