The Revenant — New TV Spot: 'My Son'


added: Sat, Dec 5th '15

In the newest 45-second commercial for the much-buzzed-about survival thriller "The Revenant," Leonardo DiCaprio, playing a 19th-century frontiersman, is seen sharing a few tender moments with his half-Native American son. Sadly, he learns later his boy had been murdered by one of his men (played by Mad Max's Tom Hardy). It's the same man who'd left him to die after a gruesome bear mauling. With nothing else to lose, Leo vows vengeance for his son's death. But it will take every ounce of his strength, and possibly what's left of his soul, to see justice done.

Inspired by true events and based on author Michael Punke's historical book, "The Revenant" comes from Oscar-winning filmmaker Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman). Early reviews of the gritty film have been glowing, making it a surefire awards contender.

"The Revenant" is set to open in select theaters on Christmas Day and then opens wide 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.
