It also shows quite a bit more action, and hints at more of the plot. DiCaprio is a fur trapper whose camp comes under fire from a Native American tribe. Then, as he and his companions — including his son — trek across the snowy wilderness, he's attacked by a bear. One of those companions, played by Tom Hardy, leaves him for dead by half-burying his body in the ground.
But DiCaprio still lives, hauls himself out of the grave, and embarks on a quest for vengeance. "He's afraid," DiCaprio whispers to someone. "He knows how far I came to find him."
The visuals are just stunning, thanks to Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. DiCaprio looks to give an intense performance, and no doubt will be in the mix for the Best Actor Oscar this year.
"The Revenant" opens Christmas Day.
