The Revenant, il nuovo film di Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu, debutterà sugli schermi americani pochi giorni dopo Star Wars.
Leonardo Di Caprio ci tiene a sottolineare che forse il vero spettacolo non sarà nello spazio, ma nella foresta canadese: “It’s going to be one of the most unique film-going experiences that audiences have seen in modern times. I can name 30 or 40 sequences that were some of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. Whether it’s going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set. [I was] enduring freezing cold and possible hypothermia constantly”.
I due film non si pesteranno i piedi: “There’s always room at the top. I’m going to be in line for ‘Star Wars’ as well. What’s great about this time of year is, as you know, they save the best for last in most cases. And hopefully, it just means more people are excited to go to the movies. I think that people know this time of year is where a lot of great pieces of art are going to come out. I would never think that we’d be able to compete with ‘Star Wars’—that’s something that’s embedded in our cultural DNA. But I think when people begin to hear about this movie, they’ll want to go see it. And that’s all we can hope for.”
Le immagini che si sono viste sinora nei due trailer diffusi, sono letteralmente mozzafiato. La macchina da presa di Chivo Lubezki letteralmente accompagna i personaggi, con una mobilità ancora più determinante che in Birdman.
