Ever since it was first announced I have been feverishly anticipating Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy and judging by the fascinating trailer above, which features some jaw dropping cinematography, my high expectations for this film may have been met.
The plot for The Revenant rattles along like so:
Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, hunter Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is severely injured and left for dead by a traitorous member of his team, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). With sheer will as his only weapon, Glass must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.
Since this trailer was released last week reports have leaked online that the film is $40m over budget and although it’s release date is December 25th, Iñárritu is yet to film the end of the movie.
Here’s the first official trailer for Martin Scorsese’s Wolf Of Wall St, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort who was indicted in 1998 for securities fraud and money laundering after he spent years illegally manipulating the stock market for his own financial gain. And now they’ve made a multi-million dollar movie about the prick. Who says crime doesn’t pay.
Here it is, the much anticipated first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie Django Unchained.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, (who sounds very much like Werner Herzog), Leonardo DiCaprio and Don Johnson, set in the deep south in the 1800’s it tells the story of a slave freed by a German bounty hunter, who both then work together to find the slave’s missing wife who has been captured by a sadistic plantation owner. Apparently the film is peppered with cameo appearances including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L Jackson and Kurt Russell.
The title of this latest Tarantino joint might be familiar to some of you who remember a 1966 movie called simply Django which garnered cult status for many years. It starred Franco Nero as a drifter, (who carried with him a large coffin which housed an even larger gatling gun), who spent the entire film seeking revenge for the death of his wife. For those movie affeciandos out there Nero pops up in the final frame of this trailer with Jamie Foxx in what appears to be a tribute cameo from the original Django. Nice touch.
Judging from this trailer Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby is shaping up to be nothing short of visually stunning.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton it’s based on the classic story from author F. Scott Fitzgerald and in typical Luhrmann style has a very contemporary feel. The plot rattles along like so:
Nick Carraway a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby and finds himself drawn into his social circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.
