The prototypical sounds of war films – the thick whirring of helicopter blades, tumbling rocks from explosions, frantic yelling on satellite phones, and the clink-clunk scattering of artillery shells – all have their moment in the newest trailer for Lone Survivor, but there’s also the sound of average-Joe chit-chat:
“Did she ask about me?” Marcus Luttrell (played by Mark Wahlberg) asks fellow U.S. Navy SEAL Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch) about a cute girl from a Coldplay concert. Despite their risky operative, he’s still just a guy who wants to get the girl.
Wahlberg stars as Luttrell, who penned the 2007 memoir Lone Survivor about a covert al-Qaeda mission that ran into trouble when their team faced an ambush Taliban attack. Directed by Peter Berg, it also stars Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana.
