Director Peter Berg’s upcoming military film, Lone Survivor, looks to be nothing short of a stunning mixture of grit, drama, action, and tense emotion. But should we be surprised? With incredible movies under his belt like The Kingdom and Friday Night Lights, Berg has proven that he can deliver the goods. Based on true events from actions involving members of SEAL Team 10, the film’s trailer gives us a peek at the emotional and visual roller coaster its sure to take us on. After watching the trailer (multiple times) and seeing the amazing cast, led by Mark Wahlberg, there’s no doubt in my mind that these guys will be able to bring it. The trailer shows several poignant moments that give you pause but there’s also scenes that will undoubtedly bring you a sense of pride.
Here’s the rundown:
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. Based on The New York Times bestseller.
