Surviving a crash, surrounded by hungry wolves in a harsh, cold environment. It sounds almost like a metaphor for what a lot of movies are experiencing at the box office lately, but it was the plot of Liam Neeson's latest offering, which also happened to be the number one movie in theaters this weekend.
Sam Worthington steps out onto the ledge this Friday night when Asger Leth’s Man on a Ledge arrives in theaters. In anticipation of the film, Summit released this extended preview, which takes us through some of the set-up for the story, including Nick Cassidy’s climb out onto the ledge and what comes after.
So much happening in the world of cinema this week that I almost can’t contain myself. I mean, we've got Liam Neeson taking a break from killing people and turning his attention to killing wolves, Sam Worthington standing on ledges and Katherine Heigl making more sh#$%y flicks

This Rotten Week: Predicting The Grey, Man On A Ledge And One For The Money Reviews
Unlike the poster, though, which focused entirely on Sam Worthington's character as he stands with the city at his feet, the trailer has room for a lot more plot-- there's a bank heist going on here!-- and the expansive cast, which includes Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Ball, Kyra Sedgwick and Ed Harris. It's a cast so big that Anthony Mackie is on the poster and I couldn't spot him once in the trailer

Man On A Ledge Trailer: So Star-Studded There's No Room For Anthony Mackie
Worthington seems intent on balancing big-budget action with stirring drama, which is why we’re able to see him in dramas such as Man On a Ledge. The self-explanatory thriller casts Worthington as an ex-cop threatening to leap from a Manhattan skyscraper. Elizabeth Banks plays the negotiator trying to talk him down who also suspects that this dirty police officer might have ulterior motives.

Calling the premise out-there is being generous, but wilder crime scenarios have played out just fine on the screen. Documentarian Asger Leth (Ghosts of Cite Soleil) is making his feature debut with the film
