20th Century Fox and Yahoo have released six hi-res new photos from Alejandro G. Inarritu’s potential awards contender “The Revenant” which hits cinemas on Christmas Day in limited release before expanding wide on January 8th.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays an explorer left for dead by his own hunting team in the uncharted American wilderness. Guided by sheer will, he must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter also star.
The site also spoke with the film’s production designer Jack Fisk who said DiCaprio’s character has to eat a wild bison liver in order to survive. There’s one problem – the actor is a vegetarian: “He had to eat the liver, I think he threw up afterward… he was so into it. It made me really appreciate the extent to which he’ll go to make things right.”
