I have to admit, I expected the all-important gunfight that sets most of Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor” into motion being a little rockier. And more, I don’t know, mountain-ier? That’s just how I pictured it, based on the book by Marcus Luttrell that the movie is based on, anyway. But hey, Berg directed the film and I’m guessing he got consultation from Luttrell, so he probably knows more about what the actual gunfight looked like than I do, so what do I know.
What I do know is that the first trailer for “Lone Survivor” strikes all the right notes. Heroism, sacrifice, war action, and all that good stuff. I expect the movie to be just as good. Check out the trailer, poster, and a bunch of images from the upcoming movie.
LONE SURVIVOR tells the story of four Navy SEALs on an ill-fated covert mission to neutralize a high-level Taliban operative who are ambushed by enemy forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana.
The film opens in limited release December 27, 2013 before going wide next year, January 10, 2014.
