Having been nominated for four Oscars, it's criminal that actor Leonardo DiCaprio hasn't won a single one yet. However, based on the teaser trailer for his latest project, The Revenant, it seems as though this may be the film that finally bags him that award.

Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (who won an Oscar for his work on the multi-award winning Birdman) will helm the film which sees DiCaprio take on the role of explorer Hugh Glass who, after being attacked by a bear and robbed by his friend John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), sets out for revenge. Iñárritu will once again be reunited with his Birdman cinematographer, the Oscar-winning Emmanuel Lubezki. With an immensely talented team both in-front and behind the camera, The Revenant is the true definition of a must-see movie.

This afternoon, New Regency and 20th Century Fox have debuted a teaser trailer for the film and it's incredible. Boasting some great acting and teasing a very intriguing premise, this film is already looking like it's going to be making a bang come this year's Awards season. The reveal is terrific. The trailer only teases the project (thus being a teaser) but, from what we do get to see, this looks like a gorgeously shot, well directed and well acted piece of cinema. It's definitely a film to keep your eye on in the coming months.

Here's the film's official synopsis:

Inspired by true events, The Revenant is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).

With Alejandro G. Iñárritu at the helm, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson and Will PoulterThe Revenant is set to open here on January 16th, 2016.
