Whole Liam Neeson is having his epic showdown with some arctic wolves this weekend in The Grey, Willem Dafoe is looking to follow in his footsteps with a little Man vs. Wild adventure of his own. Instead of wolves, he's got tigers on the brain.
In The Hunter, Dafoe is Martin, a mercenary hired to track down a Tasmanian Tiger, thought to be extinct almost 100 years ago. But of course, catching a tiger turns out to be the least of his problems.

The Grey is earning raves from critics and is expected to take the top spot at the box office this weekend, perhaps paving the way for moviegoers to find their way to this similarly themed movie in their further search of more "bad ass with a beard takes on all predators" stories.
The Hunter, a Toronto Film Fest premiere last year, hits iTunes on March 2nd and theaters on April 6th.
