In Alaska, an oil drilling team struggle to survive after a plane crash strands them in the wild. Hunting the humans are a pack of wolves who see them as intruders.
I’m not sure what to make of this preview for the upcoming film from Joe Carnahan (of Narc, The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces). On the one hand, it has Liam Neeson being intense, which I will take over Liam Neeson being wise and fatherly any day (unless you combine the two, as in Taken), and those wolves look crazy to the point of being supernatural. Oh, and Neeson tapes broken bottles to his hands to fight them. On the other hand, all of the above. Already, The Grey is shaping up to be one of those movies that either turns out to be wicked-awesome or utterly stupid, and at this point, I couldn’t tell you which it will be. I like both Carnahan and Neeson well enough, but fist-fighting with a CGI wolf? Could be dumb, dumb, dumb.
The Grey comes out January 27, 2012.
