A new trailer has arrived for Joe Carnahan's man vs. nature thriller "The Grey" and it's kind of stupidly good. Once again, Neeson uses his awesome voice to tell fill us on the few details we need to know. He's security for a bunch of Alaskan pipeline workers and is forced to protect them when their plane crashes, leaving them at the mercy of the Alaskan winter and some vicious wolves. Neeson does it all here from building a shelter, getting a fire going and then strapping on some broken glass bottles to throw down with lupine villains. Damn son. Carnahan certainly seems to have made use of the Canadian wilderness where this shot, as it certainly looks much better than films in this genre generally do. Moreover, this has a pretty solid supporting cast with Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson rounding things out.
All in all, this looks like a perfectly servicable B-movie that could be some good brainless entertainment. "The Grey" will kick Mother Nature in the ass on January 27, 2012. Watch below. [Moviefone]
