Trailer Talk: The Grey

January 22, 2012

Liam Neeson battling wolves = A guaranteed good time.

People love Liam Neeson. He is the new Harrison Ford. I’d pay to watch him punch any creature or human. However, what I am most excited about is the supporting cast. Frank Grillo (Warrior) and James Badge Dale (The Pacific) and Joe Anderson (The Crazies) are all actors on the rise and solid in every role they take. This is good  because you know you will like the characters as they try to survive. With every death or close call your heart will be pounding as you watch them navigate the rocky terrain.

Neeson is getting Oscar buzz for his role as a survival expert trying to help an Alaskan oil drilling team survive after a plane crash. They won’t just be battling the weather. They have to deal with wolves that are protecting their territory and looking for actor flesh. The trailer looks beautiful and director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking Aces, A-Team) makes use of the wilderness well. This is not some back stage fluff. This is a down and dirty wolf punching film.

The most featured moment looks to be Neesons mini bottle knife brawl with two wolves. How could that suck? I’ve always wondered about mini bottles. It would be cool to see the worlds smallest molotov cocktail.

Enjoy the trailer! Dig the cast! Punch a wolf.

    It’s like they actually crossed that Baldwin/Hopkins movie The Edge with Neeson’s throat-punch-tastic Taken.
