“This Op is compromised,” says Mark Wahlberg as Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in the first trailer for director Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor.
Based on a true story chronicled in Luttrell’s 2007 book, Lone Survivor tells the story of a team of Navy SEALs who set out to kill a Taliban official in hostile territory near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in 2005 and get ambushed on the way. Wahlberg’s Luttrell is joined on the mission by Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Taylor Kitsch.
Universal’s first trailer is heavy on patriotic imagery and brothers-in-arms camaraderie as we watch and hope that, despite the title, more than one member of the SEAL Team 10 will make it out alive. Check it out after the jump.
Lone Survivor will have a limited theatrical release starting Dec. 27, and opens wide on Jan. 10, 2014.
