New Trailer for The Grey Starring Liam Neeson
12.04.11 by BJSprecher
Liam Neeson may be pushing 60, but he's showing no signs of slowing down. Despite his age, the Academy Award-nominated actor and former boxer proved that he was still a bankable action hero with the surprise hit Taken (2008) and is currently filming Taken's untitled sequel.
But, before he squares off on the big screen against kidnappers in Istanbul, Neeson will be fighting the frigid, sub-arctic tundra and a pack of ravenous wolves as an "oil-rig roughneck" whose plane crashes in the remote Alaskan wilderness in The Grey. The first trailer for the movie dropped back in September, and now a second, longer trailer has been released that ups the action with more death-defying thrills, spills, and chills (brrr), including more of Neeson doing an impersonation of Wolverine that is so impressive it makes Hugh Jackman look like a choir boy.
The Grey is based on Ian Jeffers' short story "Ghost Walkers." It was adapted for the screen by Jeffers and director Joe Carnahan, who directed Neeson in last year's The A-Team. The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Dallas Roberts, Joe Anderson, Nonso Anozie and James Badge Dale.
