Had to post this, Glenn Ennis the stunt man behind the bear attack in the Oscar nominated Revenant has said a few words about his preparation for the role. But my main reason for posting is the fabulous blue costume Ennis wore for filming.
Revenant is in cinemas now and is up for a number of Oscar awards including best film and best actor.
The film also gained DiCaprio his 5th nomination for the best actor award. I think he has a fair chance of winning this year after years of missing out.
“In rehearsals, I would wear a blue suit with a bear head,” he said in an interview with Global News. “Obviously that doesn’t make it into the film, and the CGI guys paint the bear in. Alejandro [Iñárritu] was adamant that the blue bear moved just like a real bear would move, and it was essential that it had the same nuances that a bear would have. Even though it was a big Smurf bear, it still had to be as authentic as possible.”
