When he's not busy effortlessly forcing you to reevaluate your existence thanks to a seemingly endless series of posse-related activities, confirmed Man of the People Leonardo DiCaprio frequently delivers Oscar-worthy performances in near-perfect examples of cinematic mastery.
For his latest artistic hat trick, DiCaprio joins Tom Hardy in Birdman director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's The Revenant — inspired by the apparently bear-heavy existence of legendary explorer Hugh Glass. After being abandoned by his pals in the wake of a bear attack, Glass (DiCaprio) must claw his way back home during a particularly brutal winter using only the power of DiCaprio as his metaphorical compass.
So, Academy. Can we finally start letting this guy collect trophies now?
The Revenant brings its bear survival tactics to a theater near you on January 8, 2016.
