A new trailer has gone online for Joe Carnahan’s survival-action flick The Grey. Once again, Liam Neeson plays a man with a very special set of skills, but this time it’s about surviving against the wild rather than surviving Paris. Neeson’s character must help a group of oil-rig roughnecks after their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness. I’ve enjoyed all of Carnahan’s previous movies (Narc, Smokin’ Aces, and The A-Team) and I can’t remember the last time we saw a solid men-vs-wild movie (maybe The Edge? It has Anthony Hopkins rasslin’ grizzly bears). I continue to hope that this movie delivers with the force of broken-bottle knuckles.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts, Joe Anderson, James Badge Dale, and Nonso Anozie. The Grey opens January 27, 2012.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Grey:
A group of oil-rig roughnecks are left stranded on the sub-arctic tundra after their plane experiences a complete mechanical failure and crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. The survivors, battling mortal injuries, biting cold and ravenous hunger, are relentlessly hunted and pursued by a vicious pack of rogue wolves.
