Liam Neeson stars in the first trailer for Joe Carnahan's The Grey

Although I don’t necessarily like the idea of a movie that focuses on men battling wolves, I have to admit that the first trailer for Joe Carnahan’s THE GREY looks pretty intense. The film is about an oil drilling team that crash in northern Alaska and struggle to survive, eventually fighting to fend off a pack of wolves that view them as hostile intruders. The trailer really only features Liam Neeson, but there are other stars in the film, including Dermot Mulroney (MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING), Joe Anderson (ACROSS THE UNIVERSE), James Badge Dale (HBO’s ‘The Pacific’), Frank Grillo (WARRIOR) and Nonso Anozie (CONAN THE BARBARIAN).
This is a reteaming for Liam Neeson and director Joe Carnahan, who first worked together on the severely underrated THE A-TEAM. Carnahan has a reputation of being difficult to work with, but that might be unfair considering Neeson was willing to work with him twice. And if you haven’t seen THE A-TEAM yet, pick it up and give it a chance. THE GREY hits theaters on January 27th, 2012.
