The Revenant News

Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie Recruits The Revenant Sceenwriter Quentin Tarantino’s proposed Star Trek movie is taking another unlikely step toward reality, as the film has now enlisted The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith to write a script based on Tarantino’s idea. Tarantino has long been a vocal Star Trek fan, but the film world was caught off guard when it was learned the Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill auteur had actually pitched an R-rated  film to Paramount, and that the studio was eager to make the film, with J.J. Abrams producing.

Patrick Stewart Wants in On Quentin Tarantino's 'Star Trek' Quentin Tarantino is not only developing a Star Trek movie with J.J. Abrams, but he’s convinced Paramount to let him make an R-rated feature. And if Paramount can get behind that wacky insanity, then who knows what other zany tricks are up Tarantino’s sleeve — all of which is to say that maybe we shouldn’t be surprised every time there’s a new story about this movie. Anything is possible, including the potential for Patrick Stewart to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard, which is exactly what he’d like to do. Continue reading…

It’s an Oscar-charged edition of Honest Trailers, with the film that won Leonardo DiCaprio his first Academy Award getting a comedic makeover thanks to the ScreenJunkies team. Directed by Alejandro “Hey, that’s not Scorsese!” G. Inarritu, The Revenant is, according to the trailer, “epic...

Ben Affleck Responds to 'The Revenant' Director's Harsh Criticisms of Superhero Films A couple of years ago, The Revenant and Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu shared some particularly severe opinions about the prevalence of superhero films, referring to them as “cultural genocide.” Ouch. But Ben Affleck disagrees, and having been on both sides of the equation, the actor and director is in a position to offer an informed but diplomatic response. Continue reading…

Why ‘The Revenant’ Author Has Been Silent Despite Movie-Boosted Fame Typically, when a book is catapulted to the top of best-seller lists as the source material for a multiple-Oscar-nominated film, it’s something for the author to crow about. Not so for Michael Punke. A New York Times profile of Punke highlights the 2016 Oscars’ silent success story. Punke, the deputy United States Trade Representative and the U.S. ambassador to the World Trade Organization, also wrote “The Revenant” in 2002, the novel that served as the basis for director Alejandro G.

Cool Videos: The Revenant horse carcass sleeping bag commercial One of the standout moments for me in THE REVENANT is Leonardo DiCaprio going full Tauntaun on a dead horse in order to avoid freezing to death. ("And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.") Hell, as a STAR WARS fan, particularly THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, how could you not recognize that moment you've seen elsewhere? Tauntaun sleeping bags actually do exist, enabling you to recreate that moment in... Read More...

‘The Revenant’ Sounds Best to Cinema Audio Society “The Revenant” has won the top feature-film award from the Cinema Audio Society at a ceremony in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday night. The film was competing in a category with “Bridge of Spies,” “The Hateful Eight,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” All of the CAS nominees except for “Hateful Eight” are also competing for the sound-mixing Academy Award, with “The Martian” taking that final slot at the Oscars. The Cinema Audio Society has been giving out awards since 1993.

The narrative is familiar and well known by now: Alejandro G. Iñárritu's "The Revenant" was a tough shoot. There's absolutely no debating that. Almost as punishing as the trials that Leonardo DiCaprio's Hugh Glass goes through, the director's film faced no shortage of hurdles during its lengthy on-location shoot, which included crew turnover, battling the elements, and even global warming (the ending of the movie had to be filmed at the southernmost tip of Argentina, when conditions became too warm in Canada).
