Lone Survivor 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 ďLone Survivor,Ē 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.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Robocop, Lone Survivor And More This Week In Home Entertainment: Robocop, Lone Survivor And More
RoboCop has a lot going for it. The PG-13 remake of a 1987 hard R classic is a visually appealing narrative with plenty of glossy action sequences. It ranks up there with Gravity and Avatar as far as its VFX goes. Add in a few nice acting performances and a fine enough script and RoboCop becomes a decently entertaining movie. The only angle that it is really missing is fun.

It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isnít still coked up from Martin Scorseseís Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that werenít good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.

Well this is the big one. Christmas week is like, umm well, Christmas for moviegoers. Studios pump films on to the big screen knowing folks are on vacation and trying desperately to get away from their families. So they head to the theaters for a much-needed respite from holiday "cheer". Itís an extravaganza with wolves, Ronin, daydreamers, boxers and Beliebers.

Lone Survivor's Marcus Luttrell On What It's Like Making A Movie About The Worst Day Of Your Life Lone Survivor's Marcus Luttrell On What It's Like Making A Movie About The Worst Day Of Your Life
He's a retired SEAL with a Navy Cross. He's a proud Texan, who repeatedly addressed me as "ma'am" during our conversation. He's a big fan of movies, though isn't the kind of guy to get star struck. And perhaps most importantly, he felt it was up to him to pay tribute to his fallen brothers by telling their story.

Hirsch made it clear how dedicated he was to honoring the memory of Dietz, who was responsible for communications on "Operation Red Wings" and won the Navy Cross for his bravery there. This is a legacy that Hirsch worked hard to pay tribute to, out of respect for this fallen soldier as well as for all the others that share in this noble vocation.

All the cards of Oscar season aren't quite laid out, as we wait just one more week for American Hustle to start screening for guilds, and probably not much longer for Martin Scorsese to finally finish Wolf of Wall Street. But a lot of the question marks have been revealed, as virtually every movie with a shot in the Oscar race-- plus some major longshots-- have been unveiled in the last few months.

Lone Survivor Trailer: Bullets And Brotherhood With The SEAL Team 10 Lone Survivor Trailer: Bullets And Brotherhood With The SEAL Team 10
As you can tell from the pull-quotes featured in this trailer, from the likes of Bill Simmons and Peter Travers, The Lone Survivor isn't your average war movie, and may serve as a kind of redemption for both its director and one of its stars. No, I don't mean Mark Wahlberg-- he made a masterpiece this year already, remember?-- but Taylor Kitsch, who with director Peter Berg brought upon the world last year's Battleship.

When it was announced back in February that Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster would be starring in Peter Berg's Lone Survivor it felt like an incomplete story. After all, the film, based on the book by Marcus Luttrell, follows a group of four Navy SEALs, and if you can count you know that Wahlberg, Kitsch and Foster only make three.

The movie is based on the book by Marcus Luttrell about a group of four Navy SEALs who were captured by the Taliban while on a mission to kill a terrorist leader in 2005. As you can probably guess by now, Wahlberg, Kitsch and Foster, should they sign on, will play three of the four members of the team with Wahlberg taking the role of Luttrell.
