1) The Revenant – Cold enough for you yet? This oughta bring down the ambient temp. Coming off of the enormous success of last year’s Academy Award winning Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), director Alejandro Iñárritu teams up with Leonardo DiCaprio in this film based on a novel of the small name by Michael Punke which was itself based on the true story of fur trapper Hugo Glass, played by Leo. It’s 1823, in the wintry woods somewhere in the Louisiana Purchase. A group of trappers and hunters are set upon by Native Americans and Leo gets attacked by a bear. Tom Hardy is an evil hunter who decides that a wounded Leo is going to be a burden and kills him. Or does he? As it turns out Leo isn’t dead yet and he sets forth on a mission to revenge himself on Hardy for the attempted murder as well as a bunch of other really awful things Hardy’s done. The film also features Domhnall Gleeson, Lukas Haas, and Will Poulter. Check Fandango for screens and times. (TH)
