When I was born in 1976, a killer grizzly bear movie called Grizzly (an appropriate and ingenious title indeed) was born as well. It has somewhat developed a bit of a cult status, and the DVD can get you a nice bit of cash if you’re in a bind. Sadly, since that year – the murderous bear movies have been scarce and often terrible (Grizzly Rage, Bear, Grizzly Park), but that could possibly all change very soon. That’s right – a new movie with the same name as the 1976 flick is coming! Ladies and gentlemen – I give to you the new trailer for Grizzly:
Well that looks awesome. And it’s got Billy Bob Thornton in it! Let’s not fool ourselves though, the real star of this is the blood-thirsty grizzly bear. Grizzly really does look like a ‘guilty pleasure’ ready to happen, doesn’t it? Here’s a quick plot synopsis below, as if you really need a plot to know if you’re going to enjoy this one or not:
‘In the action thriller Grizzly, a deputy whose mission is protecting the threatened grizzly bear suddenly finds himself conflicted when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc on a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother, he enters the labyrinthian Grizzly Maze to track down his wife who’s gone missing before the bear does. As the body count mounts, and an infamous bear hunter enters the fray determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life, no one is safe in the harsh Alaskan wilds.’
Ok, that’s all great and all but all I really care about is watching Billy Bob Thornton chew some scenery and the bear chew on some heads. Looks like from the trailer that we’ll get both of those things, so stay tuned for more info and a release date on Grizzly soon!
