10 Great Movies That Opened In January
January is a rough month for movies. Itís a time thatís also considered a dumping ground for plenty of films that weíll all forget about by the time the summer blockbusters roll around. But nobody ever thinks of January as the time weíve all been waiting for. However, there are a few movies that have broken this nasty cycle.

Liam Neeson Has Killed Fewer People On Camera Than You Think
Ever since he took on the role of ass kicker extraordinaire, Liam Neeson has been labeled as a man that could mow down quite a few baddies in the confines of a feature film. At least, that's what we were lead to believe before the graphic above was released onto the internet this afternoon. For those of you who are hardcore Liam Neeson fans that are convinced of his godly powers of justice, you're going to want to sit down for this one.

Weekend Box Office: Number One Goes To The Wolves
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.

Liam Neeson Talks Working With A Different Joe Carnahan On The Grey
The Grey isnít the first movie that Liam Neeson has done with director Joe Carnahan. Back in 2010 the duo worked together to make The A-Team a fun action romp in which Neeson played the classic role of John "Hannibal" Smith. The Grey, however, is a completely different beast (and Iím not talking about the wolves). And working on such a different film required a different kind of director, a director that Joe Carnahan had to become.

When Animals Attack: 6 Excellent Man Vs. Beast Movie Moments
There are plenty of movies out there where wild animals are portrayed as fluffy adorable little beings. Hell, almost the entire world of animation is based around that principle. We all love the idea that every creature on Earth would be totally fine with you snuggling with it. Welcome to reality: there are animals out there that would take your invitation to snuggle as a hostile maneuver and claw your face until all thatís left is a pile of red ribbon.

Red Band Trailer For The Grey Arrives Online
Joe Carnahan's The Grey is a dark, gritty, brutal piece of cinema, but you probably figured that out when you read that the film is about an oil drilling team that crash lands in the Alaskan wilderness and must fend off a series of wolf attacks. As you can imagine, the film has more than enough bloodshed and cursing, meaning that the green band trailers that we've shown you previously - as cool as they have been - haven't really given audiences the clearest picture about the content.

Frank Grillo And James Badge Dale Talk Plane Crashes And Extreme Conditions In The Grey
In Joe Carnahanís The Grey, a plane carrying a group of oil drillers are stranded in the Alaskan wilderness following a plane crash. The crash itself is a harrowing scene filled to the brim with panic and stress as it appears the actors are being put through a real disaster. So just imagine how hard it would be to get off that plane cabin set and on to a real plane that will be taking you to the site where the rest of the film will be made on-location.

Joe Carnahan Says We Won't See An A-Team Sequel, But There Could Be A Narc 2
Thanks to movies like Smokin Aces†and The A-Team, Joe Carnahan's career took kind of a weird turn over the last six years, but with The Grey†he's finally back to his roots. The gritty survivalist drama is the best movie that he's done in years, dating back to the film that really launched his career: 2002's Narc.

The Grey Full Trailer Has More Liam Neeson, More Wolves To Be Punched
I realize that the last film Neeson and Carnahan worked on together was the generally disappointing The A-Team, but it's hard to contain my very childish glee over this. The last movie about people surviving in the frozen wilderness I can think of is The Edge, and while it's hard to imagine anything topping the high-stakes drama in which Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins fight off a bear

Now the teaser trailer for the new Carnahan-Neeson team-up, The Grey, has arrived online...
