First Photos: DiCaprio In “The Revenant”

The first photos are out of Leonardo DiCaprio in “Birdman” director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s new period drama thriller “The Revenant,” currently shooting in Calgary until April. The film is shot by “Gravity” cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and uses only natural light in remote locations, which means only a few hours of filming can be done each day.

EW posted the shots from the true story film about an early 1800s frontiersman mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead by his companions. Despite his injuries, he makes the 200-mile journey back to civilization to confront the men (Tom Hardy, Will Poulter, Domnhall Gleeson) who left him to die.
