I think it's safe to say Star Wars: The Force Awakens is at the top of all of our lists of the films we most want to see before 2015 comes to an end, and even though there are still a ton of potentially great movies that are debuting in the next few months, I think The Revenant is my number two choice. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's revenge drama stars Leonardo DiCaprio (my favorite working actor) as a trapper who survives a bear attack and swears revenge against the members of his team who left him for dead (including Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson, two of my other favorite working actors). And if that weren't enough, Inarritu and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki shot the movie entirely using natural light, which gives the movie an otherworldly look. Yahoo has some new photos from the movie that showcase its unique visuals, and you can check them out below.
The Revenant arrives on December 25th.
Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
