The Revenant

"These shots are about creating an intimacy with the actors within an epic landscape." 20th Century Fox has debuted this new making of featurette for Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, which explores the grueling processing of filming this story. The shot for almost a year in the freezing cold in Canada, using only natural light, and submitting themselves to the raw elements of nature. The end result is a spectacular cinematic experience - every shot is stunning, and it's powerful to watch so raw, real beauty. This is a brutal tale of survival, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domhnall Gleeson, and it's riveting to watch. This video shows a lot of footage and examines the themes that Iñárritu is touching upon.

Here's the behind-the-scenes featurette for Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, from YouTube:

The Revenant

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, Oscar winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel). Fox will release The Revenant in theaters on December 25th, Christmas Day.
