Introducing the Film Club – Week #5: The Revenant

Watch along with our experts on Twitter and join the conversation around your favourite films.

The Revenant

If you’re anything like us, you’ll have been desperately missing the cinema in recent weeks – and even though some chains have started opening again, it seems likely that it will be a while before cinema-going habits are truly back to normal.


With that in mind, we’re continuing the Film Club – our interactive event based around some of the best movies showing on telly.

The Revenant

The concept is simple: we choose a film showing on a free-to-air channel at the weekend, which we encourage you to watch alongside us.

We’ll be tweeting along with some interesting facts and trivia, asking you for to share your thoughts about the film we’ve chosen using the hashtag #RTFilmClub and running some new content revealing some interesting insights into the film of the week.

And if that wasn’t enough a video discussion between two of our experts goes live straight after the film has finished airing on TV – tune in to our Twitter feed to check it out.

In previous weeks, we’ve had communal watchalongs of the James Bond movies Casino Royale (2006) and Skyfall (2012) – and sparked quite a bit of conversation on Twitter as to who should replace Daniel Craig when he hangs up his Walther PPK, while more recently we opted for classic sci-fi sequels Back to the Future Part 3 and Blade Runner 2049.

This time round we’ve gone for something a little bit different – Alejandro González Iñárritu’s epic revenge thriller The Revenant, which received 12 Oscar nominations upon its 2015 release, and finally won Leonardo Di Caprio that elusive Best Actor Award.

You can watch the film on Saturday 8th August at 9pm on BBC Two – join us as we head back to the 1820s and try not to be attacked by any bears…
