The first trailer for Joe Carnahan’s thriller, The Grey hit the internet last week. The film stars Liam Neeson alongside a group of oil-rig roughnecks whose plane crashes in the snowy Alaskan wilderness. With only a few days to escape their freezing surroundings, a pack of grizzly wolves make the journey more of a challenge.

Although the trailer, which can be watched here, doesn’t give away much, it suggests that Carnahan is aiming for a tense and well-produced thriller, which is enough in itself, for now.

The film is set to be released in America in January but the UK date is not yet known. It also stars Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney Dallas Roberts, Joe Anderson, James Badge Dale and Nonso Anozie.
