The Revenant — Extended TV Spot: 'Survival'


added: Sun, Nov 29th '15

Leonardo DiCaprio teeters on the edge of death in a new commercial for the 19th-century-set revenge thriller "The Revenant," which also stars Mad Max's Tom Hardy.

Inspired by true events and based on Michael Punke's 2002 historical book of the same name, the film is co-written and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the Oscar-winning Mexican filmmaker behind last year's best picture "Birdman."

"The Revenant," which should earn DiCaprio his sixth trip to the Oscars as it is already generating award-season buzz, also stars The Maze Runner's Will Poulter and Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Domhnall Gleeson.

In it, DiCaprio portrays Hugh Glass, a real-life fur trapper who, in 1823, after surviving a near-fatal bear attack, vowed to exact revenge against the men who left him for dead. Glass, though badly wounded, embarks on a 3,000-mile-long journey across the American wilderness, enduring the rigors of a freezing winter.

"The Revenant" will open in select theaters on Christmas Day before going nationwide on January 8th.

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.
