Trailer for The Revenant depicts the gritty side of the American frontier


Leo gets gruff

The American Frontier was a dangerous place – a time of expansion, genocide and men looking to find their place in the world. Alejandro G. Iñárritu's upcoming film The Revenant, based on Michael Punke's novel of the same name, seems intent on depicting the hard, gritty, violent life of such a man, judging by a new trailer for the film. The long-overdue adaptation has been in production in one form or another since 2001, and the final product stars Leonardo DiCaprio as frontiersman Hugh Glass. After being mauled by a bear and left for dead by his crew, Glass sets out for revenge . 

It's a short, terse trailer, more interested in getting the film's tone across with imagery than with dialogue (though what little there is depicts DiCaprio's gloomy disposition just fine as well). Check it out below and see what you think; The Revenant hits theaters on Christmas Day in the US, and also stars Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson.
