"The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio. Aiming at the Old West.

Okay, nothing to do with our publishing outfit but it's good to know that the Old West still has a big screen presence.

Alejandro Gonzales Iñárritu and Leonardo DiCaprio take on the tale of American mountain man Hugh Glass in The Revenant, which 20th Century Fox is ramping up for a December 25 limited bow before going wide January 8. The survival tale follows explorer Glass and his hunting team as they chart and do battle in the wilds of the early 1820s Western frontier.

Leonardo DiCaprio

The tale as depicted here, based on true events, may take some liberties — DiCaprio’s Glass has a son in the film, which fuels in part his thirst for revenge, and after being mauled by a bear (that really did happen) it is his own confidant (Tom Hardy) he seeks out for betraying him. Those are trifles compared with the big picture, literally: this ambitions pic is a gorgeously shot sweeping epic, with stunning panoramic takes that puts the frontier front-and-center as a main character DiCaprio must confront as he heals from his massive wounds to exact his own pound of flesh — and after what he’s been through, he could use some spare flesh.

Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter also co-star in Gonzalez Iñárritu’s follow-up to his Oscar Best Picture winner Birdman, from the screenplay by Mark L. Smith and Gonzalez Iñárritu and based in part on the 2003 novel by Michael Punke.
