Look who's not afraid of the big bad wolf?! The first teaser trailer for Liam Neeson's survival thriller The Grey has made its way out of the woods and onto the web via Yahoo! Movies. In the clip, the Batman Begins actor survives a plane crash with a group of oil-rig roughnecks who are forced to navigate the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries, cold weather, and ravenous hunger, the gang have another force of nature on their asses—a vicious pack of rogue wolves.

The trailer looks far more fun than expected. We always appreciate it when Liam goes maverick and watching him fearlessly sport broken-bottle knuckles to fight against the wild animals puts The Grey on our must-watch list. Directed by Joe Carnahan (The A-Team), this silly/serious adventure blend also stars Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney, James Badge Dale, and Dallas Roberts opens on January 27, 2012.
