Leonardo DiCaprio’s acclaimed film, “The Revenant” from Academy Award winning director Alejandro Iῆarritu holds its public advance screenings in Philippine theatres (2D and IMAX screens) as last full show nationwide on February 2, Tuesday – hours ahead of its opening (following) day on February 3.
We got a chance to watch the movie in IMAX during a press preview last January 26th and I have to say that it was so worth it. Iñárritu's impressive visuals and those gut-wrenching action sequences wouldn't have the same impact if you saw this on a smaller screen.
Based on true events from legendary Hugh Glass’ accounts on surviving the wild, uncertain times and even returning from the dead, “The Revenant” is this year’s most awaited cinema event. In THE REVENANT, the highly anticipated film from 20th Century Fox, Leonardo DiCaprio plays Hugh Glass, a fur trapper and frontiersman who is left for dead deep in the unchartered American wilderness 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 tribes in a relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald. Inspired by a true story, the film is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker and Academy Award-winner Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
“The Revenant” opens in cinemas across the nation starting February 3 (also in IMAX screens) from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros. Check your nearest theatres for schedule and advance ticket purchase.
