Leonardo DiCaprio has called shooting “The Revenant” the most challenging thing he’s ever done as an actor, and relentless TV spots like the one above certainly prove why. Braving a harsh winter, unpredictable natural landscapes, large scale battle scenes and grueling set pieces, DiCaprio looks to be a force of nature in Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s first project since sweeping the Oscars with “Birdman” last year.
DiCaprio stars as American explorer Hugh Glass, who is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own team, led by Tom Hardy’s John Fitzgerald. Gravely injured but alive, Glass embarks through the wilderness in pursuit of vengeance. Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter co-star.
“The Revenant” opens in select theaters December 25 before a nationwide expansion on January 8. Watch the TV spot above.
