"The Revenant," a film starred by Leonardo DiCaprio has been abuzz for an Oscar-winning nomination. The action-drama flick is described as brutal and gory by Hollywood Reporter.
On Monday, the epic period piece drama, starred by "The Wolf Of Wall Street" actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Tom Hardy, was screened for an audience of awards voters and tastemakers at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
On the same day, "The Wolf Of Wall Street" made his remarks at Q&A session. Variety reports that DiCaprio admitted that his latest film was the most difficult.
"It was the most difficult film, I think, that any of us has ever done," he said. The actor added they rehearsed like a stage production for a long time.
The action film was helmed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, the director of the 2014 movie, "Birdman," and this is the follow-up movie to "Birdman." Iñárritu's 2014 movie got three Oscars.
The director of the film said his latest film is very challenging for him as there were complicated, single takes, and there were times they're filming in 30-below temperature.
"Conditions were against us all the time," he said. The film is very challenging for him because he's a hot man. "I'm a tropical man from Mexico City," he added. According to the source, Inarritu was also co-scripter (he worked alongside Mark L. Smith).
The movie has released two trailers. The trailer showcases more drama and action. "The Revenant" is set to be released on December 25 in the United States.
On the first trailer released, which can be watched on Youtube, the video description includes plot summary that concludes, "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,"
