As the week wound down, the first reviews for Alejandro G. Innaritu’s “The Revenant” landed, and the overall verdict is that his gritty revenge tale is a powerful one, even if it’s sometimes a difficult watch. Our own Rodrigo Perez weighed in, describing the film as “unforgettably visceral” with “much to be dazzled and experientially shaken by.”
To keep the momentum going, 20th Century Fox dropped an epic new TV spot that ties together the two overriding themes of the film: family and bloody, hell-bent vengeance. Highlighting the film’s Malick-esque lensing, and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s go-for-broke performance, this should definitely get the blood pumping as you put this on your must-see list for the month.
“The Revenant” opens on Christmas Day. Watch below.
