Extended Twitter TV Spot for The Grey Starring Liam Neeson
12.23.11 by Ryan
The first trailer for the upcoming The Grey made it almost seem like Liam Neeson was going to be alone as he fights off the elements and a pack of wolves after being stranded in the Alaskan wild after a plane crash. The second trailer offered more of Neeson's fellow survivors, including Frank Grillo (Warrior), Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding), Dallas Roberts (3:10 To Yuma), Joe Anderson (The Crazies), James Badge Dale (the upcoming World War Z, HBO’s The Pacific), and Nonso Anozie (Conan The Barbarian).
The Grey debuted at Ain't It Cool News' Butt-Numb-a-Thon earlier this month, and, after the strong response, The Grey director Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) sent them an extended, Twitter TV spot, which includes footage mostly pulled from the second trailer along with reviews and responses sent over Twitter about the movie.
The Twitter spot is identical to the extended TV spot released a couple weeks ago, but without any of the reviews.
Based on the sort story "Ghost Walkers" by Ian Mackenzie Jeffers, The Grey was adapted by Jeffers and Carnahan.
