AD BLOCK must be DISABLED to view preview trailer. 

The Kingdom and Battleship director Peter Berg takes on a much more small-scale and intimate film (relatively speaking) with Lone Survivor, the movie account of the real-life “Operation Red Wings” mission that went bad in Afghanistan back in 2005.

Starring as the four SEAL Team members forced to fight their way out of hostile Taliban territory are Mark Wahlberg (2 Guns), Taylor Kitsch John Carter, Emile Hirsch (Bonnie and Clyde) and Ben Foster (The Mechanic). Supporting roles will be played by the likes of Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games), Jerry Ferrara (Entourage) and Eric Bana (Black Hawk Down).

Berg had something of a misstep with Battleship, but films like The Kingdom and Friday Night Lights have shown that he can make a stirring and unapologetically patriotic film that offers some adrenaline thrills, to boot.

Ben Foster in ‘Lone Survivor’

…But if the spoilerific implications of the title (not to mention the montage of footage) tell us anything, it’s that you may want to bring a box of tissues to the theater for this one; it’s probably going to get pretty brutal in its attempt to  honor the real sacrifices of those in the armed forces.


Lone Survivor will be in theaters on January 10, 2014.

  1. Marcus Luttrell’s book was fantastic. An amazing and heartbreaking story. I’ve been waiting for this movie for a long time, I hope it does justice to the SEALs and the Armed Forces.

    • It most likely will because if there’s anything Hollywood does best, it’s military themed movies and managing to do them justice, especially those based on real life events. There’s no way the public will let them get away with a poorly made movie considering the source material and real life events.

      • not pearl harbor

    • This movie sounds really good. As a big supporter of the U. S. military, I have high hopes for this flick. We need to support our military, their high ideals and bravery, and give thanks every day to God for the fortitude of the ladies and gentlemen that help keep honor high, our freedoms safe, and protect our way of life by being willing to give it all!

  2. I read that marcus survived with a broken back and several fractures…. wow. This guys are real heros

    • Sounds like me working at Wal-Mart and just barely surviving the Black Friday crowds!

  3. i know they have to set it up for it to make a hollywood movie but sometimes it strayed a little far from what i saw of his story on 60 minutes. otherwise i really did like the movie & i was yelling at the screen so i can’t complain about the filler needed.

  4. Just saw it. Decent movie. Better than Berg’s last outing but honestly can Hollywood stop trying to push Taylor Kitsch down our throats. He is a talent vacuum. Good thing Ben Foster and Marky Mark save the film.

    • Sure Taylor kitsch ends up in s***** movies but in no way is he talented vaccuum.
