The Revenant ... Into the wild

LEONARDO DiCaprio looks like he went through hell in director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant.  He's left for dead by his own white people, crawls on frigid ground, and in the most improbable scene, removes the intestines of a dead horse and uses the carcass as a duvet.
   While DiCaprio's frontiersman guide Hugh Glass is keen on exacting revenge on talkative choleric trapper John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy, who appeared with DiCaprio in Inception) for killing his half-breed Native American son, the film is more about Glass surviving a bear's mauling and making it across frozen land to a fort.
