“Live to tell the story.” Universal has debuted the trailer for Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana. Thankfully, this looks a lot better than Berg’s last directorial effort, the disastrous 2012 flop Battleship. Check out the trailer and poster below.
Lone Survivor is based on Marcus Luttrell’s memoir titled Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Last Heroes of SEAL Team 10. The adaptation chronicles the failed 2005 mission “Operation Red Wing” where four members of SEAL team 10 were tasked with the mission to capture or kill a notorious Taliban leader, but only one survived (hence the title).
Lone Survivor opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 27th and nationwide on January 10th, 2014. Universal is reportedly planning an Oscar campaign for this film. We’ll have to wait and see if this film becomes this year’s Zero Dark Thirty. What do you think of the trailer?
