The Sound of The Revenant

In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection sound profile we feature Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Martín Hernández and Re-recording Mixer and Supervising Sound Editor Randy Thom discuss their recent collaboration on Director Alejandro González Iñárritu's new film The Revenant.


Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT captures one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.
