From Leonardo DiCaprio and NOT Martin Scorsese comes the movie that will go down in history as the movie that got Leo his Oscar, even if it’s mostly pure Oscar-bait. While the views get tallied from last week’s Batman V SupermanHonest Trailer battle, the gang at Screen Junkies give the HT treatment to one of 2015’s best reviewed films, The Revenant.
You can check out the Honest Trailer for The Revenant below.
Watch the film that put its cast through months of torture in order to put its audience through nearly three hours of torture. Narrator Jon Bailey has a lot of fun pointing out all the sky shots, and then rehashes all Leo’s sad-faced Oscar losses, before moving to all the fun stuff, like the unintelligible grunting and Tom Hardy’s constant rambling about pelts. But really, it’s all about Leo because he stacked the deck on the Academy with “a true story about an American figure, shot by last year’s Oscar winning director and cinematographer, and the best competition he had was Heisenberg playing Trumbo.”
So watch as Leo actually endures the cold, sleeps in a dead horse, and eats raw fish and bison liver… “doesn’t being good at acting mean you’re good at pretending to do things?” And then the best part as Bailey changes the music and shows how close The Revenant is to MTV’s Jackass.
Starring: Academy Award Winner, Leonardo DiCaprio (ahhh that feels so good to finally say), Sad Max, Domhnall Gleeson (pronounced correctly), and Sexual Harassment Grizzly… New Title: Hugh Glass and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day… Best new title ever maybe.
