The Grey To Battle Wolves And Weather On Blu-Ray In May

Despite your feelings on existentialist thrillers, survival films, and gruesome winters, Liam Neeson is almost always fun to watch, and January’s The Grey proved this once more, pulling in a healthy $51 million domestically on what was a relatively inexpensive $25 million budget. It can’t be denied: some people have the Liam fever, and The Grey was a quick fix for those of us who can’t wait to see the Irish actor spring into action (well, hopefully) in this summer’s Taken 2. If you haven’t yet caught the flick, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing the man vs. wolf flick to Blu-Ray and DVD on May 22nd.

Despite costing $34.99 for the Blu-Ray and $29.98 for DVD copies, the R-rated film’s at-home release will be relatively free of extras. Director Joe Carnahan makes an appearance in a commentary segment that also features editors Roger Barton and Jason Hellman. Rounding out the extras are deleted scenes, although I’m not so certain how well the “stay alive” theme will translate into 30-second throwaway clips. It seems Universal is hoping people will shell out extra cash due to all of the random extras they throw into the mix on Blu-Ray copies, including UltraViolet, U-Control, pocket Blu, and BD-Live.

Apart from facing a Sicilian with death on the line or getting into a land war in Asia, testing you mettle against wolves is one of the most dangerous things a person can do, but that doesn’t mean it's not worth watching.
