The powerful but brutal trailer for The Revenant, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, has been released.

Oscar-winning director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu follows up Birdman with this 19th century wester thriller which is based on a gripping true story.

Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is a fur trader who is mauled by a bear in the depths of the North American wilderness and then left for dead by a member of his hunting team, John Fitzgerald (Hardy), who also robs him of his son.

Glass crawls his way back to life and sets out to exact revenge upon the man who destroyed his life.

If the trailer is anything to go by (and granted, often they're not), DiCaprio may be a shoo in for yet another Oscar nod.

The film releases in Ireland on January 15.
