Man vs. Wild is one way to explain Open Road Films’ The Grey, although that’s a simple comparison. After a plane crashes in the pristine Alaskan wilderness, a group of survivors must battle the harsh elements and a pack of hungry grey wolves — some, to say the least, are luckier than others. I’d like to think I possess the will to survive like Liam Neeson’s character although I suspect I’d become a wolf chew toy in mere moments. Watch the impressive trailer that’s attached to get a sense of what I’m talking about.
The Grey stars Liam Neeson, Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts, Nonso Anozie, Joe Anderson and James Badge Dale.
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.
The Grey hunts in US theaters on January, 27 2012.

Hey sorry but I love Liam,but a movie about bad wolves in this day and age seems sad. Like a movie about killer dolphins.Just wrong time.Hungry black bear or mob of racoons would be better,no? Wolves are having a bad time as it is. I’m not being a jerk,but to make a movie about just wolves threatening a group of survivors seems dumb. Am I wrong?

I Love Liam but I agree with Paul”s response. I am a supporter of wolves right to co-exist in this world. They are most fascinating and beautiful creatures. With the new laws in Alaska to aerial hunt them is a horrible mistake. I think this film just adds to the false ideas of wolves. I do not know of wolves hunting man! Am I wrong in my belief? Can this really happen? Why not a Grizzly ? Bears darn sure have attacked man more often in the wild.

In the last 111 years ( To date ) there have been 8 documented fatal wolf attacks in all of North America. 3 of these were from captive wolves, one of which was on a chain. The premise of a pack of smart wolves hunting down a group of crash survivors is POSSIBLE but highly unlikely. And we just know that these movie wolves will be extra diabolically smart and have powers of logic and reason. Sure a wolf will eat anything .. if is starving and will attack a human , if rabid. But a movie ? In this day and age abo=t devil wolves ? Bad idea.
