The GreyLiam Neeson (Unknown) takes on a pack of wolves in The Grey, a film that Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers called “a true call of the wild.”

Based on a short story by co-screenwriter Ian Mackenzie Jeffers, the movie tells the story of John Ottway (Neeson), a sharp-shooting wolf hunter who must lead a group of oiling roughnecks on a dangerous trek through the Alaskan wilderness. The trip gets worse when their plane crashes on a remote mountaintop. With limited supplies, Ottway must get the eight survivors back to civilization while turning the tables on a pack of wolves that’s stalking the group.

Dermot Mulroney (J. Edgar), Frank Grillo (Warrior) and Dallas Roberts (TV’s The Good Wife) also star. The movie is the second teaming of Neeson with co-writer/director Joe Carnahan, who impressed us back in 2002 with Narc then in 2010 with the updated The A-Team, starring Neeson.
