‘The Grey’ Red Band Trailer: Roughnecks, Wolves, Blood & Cuss Words

The Grey Red Band Trailer  The Grey Red Band Trailer: Roughnecks, Wolves, Blood & Cuss Words

The Grey is the latest film by Joe Carnahan, the director of movies like Narc, Smokin’ Aces, and The A-Team. If you’re not familiar with that lineup, let us be the ones to assure you that they are all worthy of the term “gritty.” Trailers for The Grey have promised that Carnahan’s man vs. nature/beast survival thriller will continue in that gritty trend – but it is the red band trailer that we now have to share that confirms it beyond a doubt.

Liam Neeson stars in the film as a man working on an Alaskan oil rig with a team of roughnecks. The team’s plane home crash lands in the tundra, and from there it is a deadly fight to survive the harsh elements and the pack of savage wolves that see a meal in the haggard survivors.

Check out The Grey red band trailer, which features more blood, bodies, and bad words than its green-band predecessor:


One strange thing about some of the early trailers for The Grey was that the so-called roughnecks from the oil rig came off like a gang of terrified cravens, rather than the tough guys they were supposed to be. Granted, that was because most of the scenes in said trailers were comprised of the guys facing perilous odds or attacks by murderous wolves (sure to unman any man) – but this red-band trailer does a good job of making these men seem a little more badass and capable. Because let’s be honest: the chances of a group of, say, accountants making out of this situation is pretty much zilch.

The Grey will be in theaters January 27, 2012.

  1. I didn’t plan on seeing this until I saw that red band trailer. Awesome stuff.

    • ya… the whole wolf controversy… who cares. Im just excited to see Liam again!

      • “ya… the whole wolf controversy… who cares”


        • there was something about 4 wolves being killed for the film. two were props and the other two the actors supposedly ate. so of course that didnt make some people happy

          • Oh ok gotcha – didn’t even hear about that; ill still watch it though

        • here ya go… read up.. pretty interesting actually. http://www.ecorazzi.com/2012/01/24/the-grey-director-downplays-wolf-controversy/

          • Interesting article. I don’t remember people going all crazy when wolves were killed in The Day After Tomorrow; they even showed wolves eating another wolf.

    • The First trailer was pretty sick too… http://screenrant.com/the-grey-trailer-sandy-141952/

  2. First batman, then everyone in Europe, now wolves. Who’d thought liem neeson could continue to top himself

    • hahaha.

  3. Yes. Violence, Curse Words and Liam Neeson. Everything The Expendables is missing ahaha

    • **Curse Words, Violence and Liam Neeson**

  4. Well, as I’ve linked to on another thread, wolf attacks on humans have happened and does happen. Obviously not to the degree as shown in the movie (I’ve seen it already in an advanced screening), but people can’t say that it’s just so far fetched and cannot possibly happen because all wolves are cuddly friendly creatures…

    • If the wolves have rabies, I can see why they would attack. I have also read articles on Wikipedia about wolf attacks in Europe, Asia and the US. And people have to realize that this is a fictional movie, not some historical documentary.

  5. Yeah. This is what I call a movie. Liam Neeson punching a wolf to death. That gets me there on opening night.

    And Kofi, great as The A Team is (it was a huge amount of fun, largely due to Neeson and Cooper) the one word that I wouldn’t use to describe it is gritty.

    • Liam Neeson is the new and improved Chuck Norris.

  6. yes roughnecks are tough guys,of course,but surviving in the wild is another thing, you can be toughest but without a survival guide you can loose the game.

  7. i know who the wolf is,it´s jacob .

  8. @ Kofi Outlaw. I don’t think your final remarks about oil-riggers vs accountants was apt. In both cases, there would be a fish-out-of-water thing going on, which could quite possibly turn tough guys into craven cowards. I might do quite well in an air or sea emergency, but if dumped into a snow-covered mountain range, turn into a quivering blob of protoplasm.

    I have nothing with which to back this up, but my sense is that all other things being equal, the smartest people would survive.

  9. I know its just a movie,but relentless killer wolves?I guess with the closeups and the swearing and “running for the trees” might keep some entertained,there should be a naked woman the guys risk their lives to save too…..i cant see myself ever watching this film.
