The Grey trailer has man against wolf

TheGrey.jpgShort. That's what I thought of the trailer. It's highly efficient telling us the story without letting much else out and giving us a look at the wolves that are hunting the survivors of a plane crash in Alaska, and one man who decides to do one thing and one thing only, fight.

I'm really not convinced by the trailer but then I wasn't convinced by the idea. I do like Joe Carnahan as a writer and director though so I'm going with it and being hopeful, after all the trailer does look good.

Plus, The Grey stars Liam Neeson, and the wolf itself. The film also stars Dermot Mulroney, James Badge Dale, Frank Grillo, Joe Anderson, Nonso Anozie and Dallas Roberts so there are recognisable names in there and a dramatic story to boot.

Liam Neeson leads an unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks when their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries and merciless weather, the survivors have only a few days to escape the icy elements - and a vicious pack of rogue wolves on the hunt - before their time runs out.

I'm not sure how I feel about the one on one scene at the end, but then I guess it's going to seem relevant to the story of the film. I think some trust with Joe Carnahan is needed, after all he's delivered well before.

So here's the very short, but surprisingly for Hollywood the doesn't give much away trailer for The Grey.



I think this trailer is exemplary. It doesn't drag, it establishes everything a trailer should and sets the tone without showing too much. The voice over really pulled me in too.
