Alejandro G. Innaritu’s The Revenant, which walked away with three Academy Awards last month, is the latest film to be given the Honest Trailer treatment by the fine people over at Screen Junkies.
The film, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD in the USA on April 19th, is described in the trailer as “epic Oscar bait” and containing a “poetic ending where he finally gets the revenge the real guy never had.”
The trailer also pokes fun at star Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar win (“literally scratches and claws his way” to the Oscar) and fellow Oscar winner Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography. The film won Innaritu his second straight Best Director Academy Award.
