Really liked the look of the film. Had a grainy, gritty look. Looked like super 16 to me.

Takayanagi in Variety:

"On 'The Grey,' we tested several film stocks and processes and ended up choosing Kodak 5229 forced processed. We used Panavision XL2 and Platinum cameras."

(I assume he means ”push processed”.)

Thanks for the replies. Seems like they could have used 16mm and had the benefit of more compact cameras for all the hand-held stuff.

The flashback of the young Neeson's character and his dad looked like it was shot anamorphic, unlike the rest of the movie.

Pushed 35mm still haas more resolution than Super-16, not to mention that everything was being cropped to 2.40. Plus if you needed the speed of the pushed 35mm it would have been harder to get away with pushing Super-16 as much.
