The Revenant and Joy Trailers
Fresh off Best Picture and Best Director Oscar wins for last year's Birdman, Alejandro G. Inarritu is wasting no time jumping back into the awards season frenzy with this year's revenge tale, The Revenant. Based on the true story of frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) who was viciously attacked by a bear on an expedition in the 1820s, he seeks vengeance on his hunting team who left him stranded to die and struggles to survive a brutal winter on his path back to his family. With two personal favorites, Tom Hardy and Domnhall Gleeson, set to co-star, The Revenant's first look is peculiar but still an intriguing late-year prospect.
Another presumed Oscar contender debuted a first-look trailer recently, David O. Russell has offered a glimpse into his Christmas Day release, Joy. From the director of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle comes the true story of a family's business and the woman who experienced multiple obstacles and turmoil on her path to creating a money-making dynasty. Starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence as the title character and Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in supporting roles, check out the debut trailer for Joy below,
