Two of the final entries in this year's Oscar race -- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "The Revenant" and David O. Russell's "Joy" -- finally unspooled in the last few days. While three of our 21 Oscarwatchers drawn from major media outlets are now predicting that "The Revenant" will win Best Picture, those backing "Joy" sight unseen have shifted over to long-time frontrunner "Spotlight." Tom McCarthy's docudrama chronicling the efforts of Boston Globe reporters to expose pedophile priests now has the support of a whopping 15 Experts. The remaining three are backing Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller "The Martian." -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions By way of a consolation prize for "The Revenant," our Experts overwhelmingly predict that Leonardo DiCaprio will finally wi...' »
With everything but the still under-wraps “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” now having unspooled for Oscar voters this year, the season’s cards are pretty much on the table. In a month (Dec. 30), ballots will be in hand, and Academy members will start to decide on nominees. But Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “The Revenant” and Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” will be sending them to the polls with a violent pair of final salvos.
Violence and how it will be perceived by the Academy is frequently a topic of discussion this time of year. Many wondered in 2013 if the brutality of “12 Years a Slave” would push voters to the relative safety of “Gravity.” That didn’t happen (though some openly admitted to voting for Steve McQueen’s slavery drama on historical principle without having seen it). The year prior, Tarantino’s own slavery yarn, “Django Unchained,” walked away with two Academy Awards. »

For those of you living under a rock, The Revenant is Alejandro Inarritu's latest in which Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar! I jest, of course. We all know that coudn't possibly happen. Seriously though, he should just be handed the damn thing judging from the trailers alone. Speaking of, we have a new TV spot showcasing the 1820s' story of frontiersman Hugh Glass (DiCaprio)...

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t afraid of death.
Once a bear has mauled you, it can’t get much worse. In the latest TV spot for The Revenant, we can see exactly what something as traumatizing as a bear attack can do to a person. Leo is seeking revenge on the men that left him for dead — and now he has all of the power because he is fearless.
Directed by last year’s winner for Best Director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, The Revenant is a film with a vengeance. We’re going in expecting all blood, guts and primal human instinct. It's certainly a departure from the film that won the director Oscar gold, Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).
DiCaprio has said that this is the hardest role he has ever had to take on — which is saying a lot, as the actor is known for his daring roles and stunning performances. »

As we stand on the proverbial precipice, gazing down upon the December release slate, moviegoers will find no shortage of major releases vying for their attention. From the vast swathes of Oscar contenders to the monumental elephant in the room that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s almost as though we’ll be spoilt for choice over the coming weeks. And one motion picture that has fast become one of the more intriguing releases – not lest for its storied production – is Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s visceral revenge thriller, The Revenant.
Reuniting with his Birdman cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Aka Chivo), the director’s latest has struck a chord with cinephiles due to its atypical approach, shunning studio lighting and interior sets in order to capture the relentless nature of the wilderness in all of its raw and pure glory. It’s a feat that continues to impress in the »

“It was the most difficult film, I think, that any of us have ever done,” Leonardo DiCaprio at a recent Academy members screening of "The Revenant" (via Variety).

While our official review won’t arrive until the embargo is lifted at the end of the week, I was allowed to give some brief thoughts on Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant after last week’s first screening, saying that it’s a classical revenge/survival story buoyed by Emmanuel Lubezki‘s idyllic touch. Brutality often swallows emotion, yet the drama is compelling in its excess.
With still nearly a month to go until it actually lands in theaters in a limited capacity, today now brings new footage and images for the film Leonardo DiCaprio calls “the most difficult” he has “ever done.” This can be glimpsed at in a new Japanese trailer as well as a new TV spot which, aside from the opening, is wordless. Along with new images, behind-the-scene peeks, and For Your Consideration ads, check out everything below and return for our review.

2015 might now be running on fumes, but there are still some incredibly exciting films to come before it rolls over into 2016. The start of Oscar season means we can expect Important performances, and Christmas means a couple of summer-sized blockbusters to feed the family’s need for a distraction from killing each other.
Added to that there’s the small matter of the Force reawakening, Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest attempt to break his Academy duck and a surf heist movie that seems to have wandered into the wrong release window entirely.
The long and short of it is that there’s no reason to start looking to the embarrassment of cinematic riches coming in 2016 just yet…

Adam McKay’s new financial-apocalypse comedy The Big Short — the subject of this week’s Vulture cover story — was produced by Brad Pitt, who also took a small role in the film to help ensure the production got properly funded. Here, Pitt talks about his sideline as a genuine prestige-movie mogul (with his company Plan B), what it means to team up with author Michael Lewis again, and his personal outrage in 2008.Lately it seems like there are a lot of actors with production companies adapting books — you, Leonardo DiCaprio, Reese Witherspoon. Do things get competitive? For instance, your company, Plan B, recently outbid your pal George Clooney on Law of the Jungle.In all fairness, he outbid me on Argo. But, yeah, it can get competitive. We do naturally have a lot of the same tastes and interests. With The Big Short, I think maybe we got the upper »

The last few year-end big-movie guns are finally screening. "The Revenant" (Fox/New Regency) has pushed Leonardo DiCaprio to the front of the Best Actor race, while Thanksgiving critical and box-office hit "Creed" (Warner Bros./MGM) provides a major comeback scenario for the creator of Rocky Balboa, Sly Stallone, as a supporting actor contender.
