Wolves Are No Match for Liam Neeson in New ‘The Grey’ Trailer

A new trailer for the Liam Neeson “I’m going to survive, no matter what it takes” movie The Grey premiered over at Moviefone…and it looks phenomenal. If you like Taken, and you like Snow Dogs, you’ll love The Grey. Neeson and a plausibly intoxicated Frank Grillo introduce the clip below, predating the intensity with a bit of silly merriment.

The Grey follows the story of several survivors of a plane crash in the wild tundra. Neeson, a survivalist to some degree, becomes the leader of the group in an effort to travel south to safety. However, the torrential climate is not their only enemy: there are wolves. So, to everyone who has ever said, “I want to see Liam Neeson fight a wolf,” (and I believe there are hundreds of you out there), you’ll be getting your wish here.

Like Taken, the movie looks to be so much better than its summary would suggest: yes, it might come of as a simple, actiony survival film. But Neeson inspires confidence that The Grey will be a superb, exciting story. Watch the first trailer here for some more assurance.

The Grey, directed by Joe Carnahan, comes out Jan. 27, 2012.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
