Entertainment Weekly has the first stills of Leonardo DiCaprio from the The Revenant.
“He’s a brave, incredible actor. I’m so surprised about how good he is,” Iñárritu says of DiCaprio. “I think there’s a profound understanding of humanity that I can see through his eyes.”
It has turned into an arduous shoot, due to the remoteness of many locations and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki’s penchant for shooting with only natural light, meaning the crew can only shoot for a few hours each day.
Says Iñárritu, “It’s a very experimental thing that we’re doing here…I’m now addicted to doing things that can fail horribly or maybe that can give us a surprise. We are all into it.”
DiCaprio will play Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and then robbed. When he survives against all odds, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on his betrayers in this captivating and inspiring story based on the Michael Punke novel, “The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge.”
The Revenant Stars Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson. Will get the release on December 25, 2015.
