Universal has released an early trailer for Lone Survivor, the Peter Berg-directed adaptation of the memoir by Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell about the harrowing firefight that resulted when a group of commandos out to kill a terrorist leader were ambushed by Taliban forces in 2005. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Eric Bana. I can remember Berg telling me years ago that he agreed to direct Battleship because Universal pledged to make this passion project of his, which he felt was all courage and heroism; the film was funded by Emmett/Furla Films, and Universal releases the film in an Oscar-qualifying run December 27 before going wide January 10. Here’s the trailer:
