After failing to win an Oscar for leading roles in the great films like “Titanic,” “The Great Gatsby,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Departed,” many began to wonder if DiCaprio could ever do enough to win an Oscar.
A newly released trailer for DiCaprio’s latest film “Revenant” has been released, and this movie based on a true story be the one that seals the deal for DiCaprio.
“In the 1820s, a frontiersman, Hugh Glass, sets out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling,” according to the IMDB description for “Revenant.”
DiCaprio plays the lead role of Glass and stars opposite Tom Hardy. The film is directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu and is scheduled to release just in time for award season on Christmas Day. (VIDEO: Watch Steve Carell Talk To Strippers About Refinancing In This New Trailer)
