Leonardo DiCaprio is The Revenant

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby) stars in the revenge-fueled adventure-drama The Revenant, which took home three Oscars, including Best Actor (DiCaprio), Best Director (Alejandro Inurittu, Birdman) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki).

Inspired by true events, The Revenant follows the story of legendary explorer Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) on his quest for survival and justice.  After a brutal bear attack, Glass is left for dead by a treacherous member of his hunting team (Tom Hardy, Mad Max: Fury Road).  Against extraordinary odds, and enduring unimaginable grief, Glass battles a relentless winter in uncharted terrain, determined to enact his revenge.

The Blu-ray includes the “A World Unseen,” which takes viewers into the world of a 19th century America, and explores the vision behind the film and the parallels found in our world today through the film’s director along with DiCaprio.
