Revenant, The (2015)
The Revenant is a 2015 American western survival film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. The film is loosely based on the life of frontiersman Hugh Glass and is based on the 2002 novel of the same name which was in turn based on the 1915 poem The Song of Hugh Glass.
In 1823, veteran fur trapper, frontiersman, and explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is mauled by a grizzly bear during a fur trapping expedition in what is now South Dakota. Critically injured, he is left behind to die by duplicitous fellow trapper John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Alone in the hostile wilderness, with no supplies or gear, Glass is forced to push the limits of human endurance on an odyssey to safety.
The following weapons were used in the film The Revenant:
Pennsylvania Flintlock Rifle
A custom-made Pennsylvania Flintlock Rifle is used by Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), and later by John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) and Bridger (Will Poulter). A pair of rifles were made for the production by Ron Luckenbill, who based them on an original rifle made by John Shuler of Bucks County. The rifles have had the barrels cut down to make them more usable on horseback (as was the case in the novel on which the film is based), an act which Ron Luckenbill refused to perform himself, saying "It would be too much like cutting off the arm of one of my children. I just couldn't do it".
Brown Bess Carbine
Brown Bess Carbines are seen in the hands of several characters, including Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), Captain Andrew Henry (Domhnall Gleeson), John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), Hawk (Forrest Goodluck), Murphy (Kristoffer Joner), Jones (Lukas Haas), Bridger (Will Poulter), and Anderson (Paul Anderson).
