The first trailer for Leonardo DiCaprio and director Alejandro G. Inarritu's collaboration "The Revenant" is here, and what it lacks in dialogue it makes up for with some breathtaking imagery -- and lots and lots of heavy breathing.
DiCaprio stars in the period drama as Hugh Glass, a trapper who, according to the film's official logline, "must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on the men who betrayed him." That's not all necessarily clear from this clip, though the "hostile" and "brutal" descriptors are right on the money; the world in this film looks rough and uninviting, and is teeming with chaos and violence around every turn.
It's all seen more or less from Glass's point of view, and the thumping score gives way to the character's quick, labored breathing as the action intensifies and the clip climaxes. »

Chicago – I can’t decide which is worse: the “fake deep talk” from Jeff Bridges in “Seventh Son” or the “angry whisper talk” from Eddie Redmayne in “Jupiter Ascending,” which also opened on Friday. Both speech impediments are ugly fish out of water, both films are getting punished by critics and both are underperforming at domestic box offices.
Ironically, both movies have also also been quite delayed and now we see why. “Jupiter Ascending” opened two days ago after initially being slated to open in July 2014. That film’s push back was justified to finish its extensive special effects, which “The Matrix” creators did without remembering to fix its laughable acting and weak story.
Also knowing it was in trouble, “Seventh Son” was originally supposed to open way back in Feb. 2013, but the film was pushed back once and then a second time to Feb. 2015. It even changed distribution »
