‘Lone Survivor’ Featurette: Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg Want to Honor Fallen Soldiers

Peter Berg‘s ‘Lone Survivor‘ is hitting theaters right at the end of the year, which means it could very well be an Oscar spoiler. Mark Wahlberg stars alongside Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster in this true-life story of a mission gone bad, and this new featurette talks to the man whose life story the film is based on.

And if you don’t want to know how the story ends, it’s better not to watch this (though the title of the film is a pretty blatant spoiler). The mission isn’t going to end well, obviously, which could put this in line with ‘Gravity‘ and ‘All is Lost’ as one of 2013′s great films about characters fighting against adverse conditions to stay alive. Berg has shown himself to be a strong director (‘Battleship’ excepted), and there’s a great cast here, so perhaps this could be one of the best films of the year.

‘Lone Survivor’ is scheduled hit theaters in limited release December 27, with a wide release on January 10, 2014. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and survival, Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative who are ambushed by the enemy in the mountains of Afghanistan.  Faced with an impossible moral decision, the small band is isolated from help and surrounded by a much larger force of Taliban ready for war.  As they confront unthinkable odds together, the four men find reserves of strength and resilience as they stay in the fight to the finish.

Mark Wahlberg stars as Marcus Luttrell, the author of the first-person memoir “Lone Survivor,” whose book has become a motivational resource for its lessons on how the power of the human spirit is tested when we are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits.  Starring alongside Wahlberg as the other members of the SEAL team are Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster.

Lone Survivor is written and directed by Peter Berg, who again crafts a striking portrait of the unbreakable bonds between men that he first explored in Friday Night Lights.
