New Trailer for THE GREY

     December 2, 2011


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 AnozieThe Grey opens January 27, 2012.

Trailer via Moviefone.

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.

    There’s the fantastic “Into the Wild” I had to watch in one of my English classes with Emile Hirsch, Vince Vaughn, Hal Holbrook, and William Hurt. It came out back in 2007 so it’s fairly recent.

    OT: How exactly can wolves be “rouge”? Do they dye their hair in crazy colors? Do they refuse to play by lupine societal rules?

    Scott free productions handled this film too, right? The Long trailer just looks to epic. I am looking forward to this perhaps even more the TDNR.

      I mean TDKR. My bad. lol.

    They only way I see this film working is if Liam Neeson’s relationship with his wife is really compelling and heartfelt; that will make the action scenes in the wilderness more suspenseful. If it doesn’t have that, it’s a generic, survival thriller.

    Psychopathic and probably terrorist wolves get their comeuppance.
