The Revenant | Leonardo Dicaprio’s Latest Film

Leonardo Dicaprio’s latest film, The Revenant, is coming out in early January 2016. In this biographical 20th Century Fox film, Leo sets out on a path of vengeance after his companions left him to die.

The entire story was inspired by the life of Hugh Glass. He was a legendary frontiersman and explorer in the early 19th century America. While being on an expedition, a bear viciously attacked him, and his own hunting team abandoned him and left to die. Driven by anger, hate and survival instincts, he went in a pursuit for revenge.

It was really difficult to shoot The Revenant since it was filmed using just natural light. This way the scenes would look as realistic as possible. The crew faced many difficult weather conditions and Leonardo stated he had many challenges with this film- “Whether it’s going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set.”
