The Revenant Making of Documentary. The making of The Revenant documentary, which delves into the film currently seating at the top of the box office, has been released. This movie featurette entitled ‘A World Unseen’ is a lengthy behind-the-scenes look at the making of Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s film, reaching the 44:25-minute mark.
