O próximo e nono filme de Quentin Tarantino abordará os assassinatos cometidos pela "família" Mason.
A Sony Pictures confirmou que filme narrará “uma história que se passa em Los Angeles, em 1969, numa Hollywood hippie”, acrescentando que “os protagonistas são Rick Dalton (Leonardo Dicaprio), antiga estrela de um programa de televisão e Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), um duplo que acompanha o actor há muitos anos. Os dois tentam sobreviver e ter destaque numa Hollywood que já não reconhecem mais… Mas Rick tem uma vizinha muito famosa… Sharon Tate.”
Aos 41 anos e depois de cinco nomeações (quatro para Melhor Actor e uma para Melhor Actor Secundário) Leonardo DiCaprio venceu um Óscar de Melhor Actor pelo seu trabalho em The Revenant.
"Thank you all so very much. Thank you to the Academy, thank you to all of you in this room. I have to congratulate the other incredible nominees this year for their unbelievable performances. The Revenant was the product of the tireless efforts of an unbelievable cast and crew I got to work alongside. First off, to my brother in this endeavor, Mr. Tom Hardy. Tom, your fierce talent on screen can only be surpassed by your friendship off screen. To Mr. Alejandro Innaritu, as the history of cinema unfolds, you have forged your way into history these past 2 years... thank you for creating a transcendent cinematic experience. Thank you to everybody at Fox and New Regency…my entire team. I have to thank everyone from the very onset of my career…to Mr. Jones for casting me in my first film to Mr. Scorsese for teaching me so much about the cinematic art form. To my parents, none of this would be possible without you. And to my friends, I love you dearly, you know who you are.
And lastly I just want to say this: making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much."
Para promover The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio e o realizador Alejandro González Iñárritu estão em destaque na Variety de Dezembro. Com um look vintage, o par posa em fotografias em tom sépia da autoria de Art Streiber.
Quando o jornalista questiona o actor sobre o facto de nunca participar em sequelas, DiCaprio responde:
“To me, every movie that I’ve done has been its own piece of individual art.” E continua: “That’s not to say I wouldn’t do something that has sequels. Some of the greatest movies in the world — The Godfather — have had sequels. The Godfather 2 is fantastic. You read a script, it’s got a beginning and an end. It’s hard to envision that being resurrected again. It just hasn’t happened.”
A Wired chega a 2016 com Leonardo DiCaprio na capa de Janeiro - a edição Survival. O actor de 41 anos fala na entrevista sobre os três momentos em que esteve muito perto da morte. Numa situação teve um encontro inesperado com um tubarão na África do Sul. A estrela de The Revenant explica: “A great white jumped into my cage when I was diving in South Africa. Half its body was in the cage, and it was snapping at me. They leave the tops open and you have a regulator line running to the surface. Then they chum the water with tuna.”
DiCaprio continua: “A wave came and the tuna sort of flipped up into the air. A shark jumped up and grabbed the tuna, and half its body landed inside the cage with me. I sort of fell down to the bottom and tried to lie flat. The great white took about five or six snaps an arm’s length away from my head. The guys there said that has never happened in the 30 years they’d been doing it."
