Alejandro G. Iñárritu will follow up his triumphant Birdman Oscar sweep with a movie that looks to be equally stunning, and now we have our first look. And don’t get us started on DiCaprio. If he doesn’t win for this, the Facebook memes and comparisons to Susan Lucci’s legendary losing streak are going to be deafening!
