Not only is it the new film from Birdman director – and reigning Oscar champ – Alejandro González Iñárritu, but the film's two leads are Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, two of cinema's most current compelling actors.
You can watch the trailer below:
Set in the 1820s, the film – adapted from Michael Punke's 2003 novel, itself based on real events – follows frontiersman Hugh Glass who seeks vengenace against the people who leave him for dead after he's mauled by a bear. Cheery, then.
The wider cast, including Will Poulter, Lukas Haas and Britain's Hugh Grant-replacement Domhnall Gleeson, are glimpsed here for the first time too. As is the bear – spoiler: it doesn't look happy.
The Revenant is released on 15 January
