Tonight Alejandro G Iñárritu’s amazing survival drama “The Revenant” received its UK premiere in London. The film opens in cinemas around the country tomorrow.
The movie picked up 12 Oscar nominations – among them nods for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) – to add to the three Golden Globes it has already won.
We are all so excited for Leonardo’s oscar nomination and can’t wait for him to win!He released a statement this morning upon being nominated:
“I am so grateful to the Academy for their recognition of this film. Making The Revenant was one of the most rewarding and collaborative experiences of my life. None of this would have been possible without Alejandro’s talent, vision and determination. Our dedicated crew also deserves to share in this moment. Together, they have created a truly unique cinematic experience. Congratulations to all of my fellow nominees this season. Thank you to the Academy.”
Based on a true story, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as 19th-century fur trapper and frontiersman Hugh Glass. Mauled by a bear, forced to witness the murder of his son, then abandoned and left for dead by an unscrupulous companion (Hardy), Glass must fight his way back from the brink of death, and undertake a perilous journey across the freezing North American wilderness.
