Watch: Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor' Trailer Featuring Kitsch & Wahlberg
"Based on true acts of courage." Time to play a game - count how many times you can hear "heroes" in this trailer. Is it 20 or 30? It gets to about 4-per-second at one point. Universal has debuted the trailer for Peter Berg's Lone Survivor, a Navy SEAL action movie about the failed June 28th, 2005 mission where four members of SEAL Team 10 were tasked to capture or kill a notorious Taliban leader, but only one survived (hence the title, even though it's kind of a spoiler to the trailer). It stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster as the four soldiers, plus Eric Bana in there, too. Have fun with this one.
Here's the first full trailer for Peter Berg's Lone Survivor, originally from Moviefone:
Lone Survivor, directed by Peter Berg (of The Rundown, Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, Hancock, Battleship), is based on the failed 2005 mission "Operation Red Wings". Four members of SEAL Team 10, were tasked with the mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader, Ahmad Shahd. Marcus Luttrell was the only member of his team to survive. Luttrell later wrote a book with Patrick Robinson titled Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10, which this was adapted from. Luttrell previously said he wanted "to make sure this movie is as realistic as possible". It was filmed in New Mexico in late 2012. Here's the official Lone Survivor poster to go along with the trailer:
Universal will first release Peter Berg's Lone Survivor in limited theaters starting December 27th, before going wide January 10th, 2014 early next year. For more visit their Facebook. Anyone interested in this?
