It looks like we should have waited a few more weeks before making our top 5 trailers post. In that post, we mentioned how the first trailer for The Revenant barely missed the cut. But had we known this second trailer was about to be released, we probably would have waited before putting the post up.
Why? Because this second trailer for the film would have definitely made the list. It’s incredible. The new, full-length trailer provides you with more details, setting up the semi-factual story about the real-life 19th century mountain man Hugh Glass, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. He’s joined in the movie by Tom Hardy who plays John Fitzgerald, the man who betrayed Leo’s character.
After watching this trailer at least five times, I truly believe this could be the movie that finally gets Mr. DiCaprio that Oscar. Even if the full film never got released. If all we had was this 2-minute trailer, I’d still be tempted to give him the award.
The Revenant was directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. It’s scheduled for a limited release in the U.S. on December 25, 2015. It will open nationwide January 8, 2016. I was going to post the synopsis below, but this trailer sets up the story beautifully.
