‘Lone Survivor’ Trailer: Mark Wahlberg Is the Last Man Standing

How exactly do you bounce back from a critical and financial bomb as big as ‘Battleship’? If you’re director Peter Berg, you go make ‘Lone Survivor,’ a war film based on true events that’s already started generating extremely positive pre-release buzz. The newest trailer for the film has arrived and we certainly hope the finished film is as intense as it looks here.

Berg has been making good-to-great film and television for quite some time now, with highlights ranging from ‘The Rundown’ to ‘Friday Night Lights,’ but ‘Lone Survivor’ looks to be one of his most personal projects yet. The director also wrote the screenplay, which tells the story of “Operation Red Wings,” an ill-fated military operation that saw four Navy SEALS venture deep into Taliban territory to capture or kill terrorist leader Ahmad Shahd. As the title implies, only one of the soldiers lived to tell the tale.

The strong ensemble includes the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch and Taylor Kitsch. Like Berg, they’re all strong talents who aren’t exactly riding too high at the moment; and, Like Berg, this is their big chance for redemption. Could ‘Lone Survivor’ win the Oscars ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ was denied?

‘Lone Survivor’ arrives in limited release on December 27 before opening wide on January 10, 2014. Expect this one to get pushed hard during award season.
