Liam Neeson Co-Stars With Alaskan Wilderness and Angry Wolves in First Trailer For The Grey
After disappointing most critics earlier this year in Unknown, an ironically familiar amnesia thriller, Liam Neeson returns to the box office this winter with The Grey. As a plane crash survivor who is forced to fend for himself in the Alaskan wilderness, Neeson stars alongside Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo and a pack of angry wolves in the action thriller from Smokin' Aces director Joe Carnahan. Take a look at the first trailer below.
According to Open Road Films, The Grey features "Liam Neeson [as he] leads an unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks [after] their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries and merciless weather, the survivors have only a few days to escape the icy elements -- and a vicious pack of rogue wolves on the hunt -- before their time runs out."
The Grey marks a reunion for Neeson and Carnahan, who directed the actor in The A-Team last year. The film, which was shot in British Columbia, was produced by Ridley and Tony Scott and is slated for a January 27 release.
Verdict: As long as no one resorts to Donner Party survival tactics, I'm in.
