The new trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s THE REVENANT has dropped and it is just as spectacular as that first teaser trailer, with the added bonus of giving us a peek at what the whole darn thing is about.

The whole darn thing looks wonderful from the opening siege to the bear attack to Leo’s tracking buddies leaving him for dead to him hunting them down to deliver sweet, sweet vengeance. I’ve mentioned before my distaste for BIRDMAN, but this really does appear to be appointment viewing. These types of movies just come along far too infrequently for me to let a little blood feud with the director get in the way. I mean, come on, that bear attack…

THE REVENANT opens on December 25th in select theaters.
