Open Road Films has released the second trailer for Joe Carnahan’s thriller The Grey, which stars Liam Neeson as a survivor of a plane crash in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness, with the increasingly relentless environment as his only enemy. That is, until wolves appear.
Watch the trailer below, from Moviefone:
In Alaska, an oil drilling team struggle to survive after a plane crash strands them in the wild. Hunting the humans are a pack of wolves who see them as intruders.
We don’t see much of the wolves, which is probably intentional. Bad CGI (like in Twilight) has the potential to turn people off, so only giving us a brief glimpse here and there serves to increase the fear and threat, and keeps people interested. Even if the CGI of the wolves is sub-par in the film i’m sure everyone will still enjoy Liam Neeson brawling with them.
The Grey will be released January 27, 2012.
