"The Grey" trailer

Via Hollywood-Elsewhere:

Director Joe Carnahan aims to one-up "The Edge" in the respected-British-actor-in-silly-killer-animal-flicks game with "The Grey;" in which Liam Neeson leads a group of plane-crash survivors through an Alaskan wilderness beset by a pack of hungry wolves. Given that they've evidently managed to survive against both the elements andpsychotic governor's bloodthirsty helicopter death-squads, I'm inclined to bet on the wolves...



The title, of course, likely refers to both the breed of wolves themselves, the bleakness of the harsh Alaskan landscape they inhabit and also the morally and ethically ambiguous depths of both psychology and behavior the characters will have to plumb in order to blah blah blah WHATEVER. Did you SEE that last beat?? Qui-Gon is wearing improvised DIY "Wolverine" knuckle-claws so he can fight the Boss Wolf hand-to-hand. That's gonna be fuckin' awesome.

Those aren't wolves, those are Latin boys from Washington....right? That aside, it looks cool. It's nice that this plane-crash-survivors flick doesn't take place in a desert with not-wolves.

Did you just call Liam Neeson a "British" actor? Oooh bob, 800 years, 1916 and all that. If theres onw group you don't want to piss off it's keyboard republicans (not THAT kind of republican...)
Seriously though, this looks pretty badass.

Liam Neeson was born in Northern Island, therefore he is a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Island so British is acceptable if he had been called English on the otherhand.
