‘The Grey’ Trailer: Liam Neeson and Plastic Bottle Knuckles vs. CG Wolves

If there’s one shot that’ll get your juices flowing for Joe Carnahan’s upcoming survival epic, it’ll be one that features Liam Neeson sporting broken glass ‐ why aren’t they plastic? ‐ knuckles to face off against a hungry wolf. From the looks of it, that seems to be the plot of The Grey. Most of this slick teaser features CG wolves looking like angry CG wolves, with the scared and pissed humans looking like scared and pissed humans. Will the film be just two hours of that?

I hope so.

Director Joe Carnahan is certainly never someone to shy away from going a little nutso. Even in a tent-pole film like The A-Team, the man had a set-piece involving Bradley Cooper and a flying tank. Would Christoper Nolan ever have the gusto to do such a thing? I think not. Take a look at a gruff and cold Liam Neeson in the teaser for The Grey after the break.
