One of my most anticipated films of the year is Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant. It was high on my list already, but after the release of that spectacular trailer, it moved right to the top. Last week, we got our first official poster for the film, and today, the studio has released two new character posters, featuring the two stars of the film, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. Check them out:
At this point, the marketing for this film really doesn’t matter. I’m at the shut-up-and-take-my-money point, already. These posters are okay (nowhere near as stunning as the one from last week) and I get where the studio is coming from. It’s the actors that sell the film, so placing DiCaprio and Hardy front and centre is the right thing to do. I appreciate the fact that they’re grizzled and dirty, in keeping with the tone of the film. It’s nice to see the pretty boys all roughed up every once in a while.
All in all, this movie looks absolutely stunning. It’s raw and visceral and I know what I’m doing on Christmas Day, provided I live in a place that gets the limited release, that is.
The Revenant is set for limited release on December 25, 2015, with a wide release on January 8, 2016.
