A lot of Leonardo DiCaprio fans were certain he’d win an Oscar for The Wolf of Wall Street, and when he didn’t they wondered if it could ever happen. Well, DiCaprio’s gonna try his damnedest again this year with The Revenant, the next film from Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. DiCaprio stars as Hugh Glass, a 19th century mountain man who survived a horrible bear attack but was left for dead by his companions and had to travel though a harsh winter in the wilderness on his own. It’s a true story, and if the film is half as bonkers as the real thing, we’ve got a must-see on our hands.

The Revenant hits theaters Christmas Day.
