If you haven’t seen the new trailer for The Revenant, please check it out now!
Firstly it isn’t a trailer that reveals major plot lines and is riddled with spoilers, so nothing to worry about there. Additionally it is an amazing trailer, and will leave you wanting more. Here are some bold predictions:
The Revenant will receive at least 6 Oscar Nominations and win at least 2 of those.
Leonardo Dicaprio will receive an Oscar Nomination for Best Actor and could actually win this time. Although he may have to be up against Jake Gyllenhaal for his performance in Southpaw and maybe even Johnny Depp for his work in Black Mass.
The Revenant will win an Oscar for Best Cinematography. This is based on the decision to shoot this film only using natural light. Also, a lot of the locations they chose to film in, have never been used for a big-budget film like this, and the scenery looks tops!
Alejandro González Iñárritu will be nominated for at least another Oscar, probably in the Best Director category.
The Revenant was filmed using this bad boy, the Alexa 65, making it one of a kind with its wide sensor, giving an equivalent to a cinematic 65mm digital look. The trailer really highlights how amazing this film is going to look. Let’s just say that Quentin Tarantino’s, The Hateful Eight has some serious competition this award season.
