Actually, that headline is not completely accurate. I had to tone it down because the truth of what we actually see in this trailer for The Grey is too batshit insane to be contained in one headline.
I warn you in advance, this trailer is a visual representation of a sliding scale between Seen-It-All-Before and Holy-Eyegasm-Batman.
You all saw that, right? It wasn’t just all that Dentyl I swallowed while I was cleaning my teeth?
I really, really don’t want to give this any context but I feel it’s my duty. Look away now if you want the origins of that scene to remain a happy mystery.
The Grey was co-written and directed by Joe Carnahan, the man behind Smokin’ Aces and The A-Team. It’s about a team of oil drillers who crash their plane in the Alaskan wilderness and have to fight off a pack of wolves who see them as intruders. It also stars James Badge Dale and Dermot Mulroney.
Speaking of Batman, somewhere in Gotham City our favourite vigilante is watching this trailer, quietly wetting himself and praying that Neeson doesn’t survive the Alaskan climate and come back for Round Two. All of the bat-themed gadgets in the world cannot protect you from the fury of the Neeson glass knuckles.
