Lone Survivor Trailer: Peter Berg Tries To Make Taylor Kitsch Happen Again, and I Think It Just Might Work

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 1, 2013 | Comments ()


Based on the failed June 28, 2005 mission “Operation Red Wings,” Lone Survivor is about four members of SEAL Team 10 who were tasked with the mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader, Ahmad Shahd.

There was only one survivor, which is a shame because that means characters played by Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, and possibly Eric Bana (although, I think he’s a higher-up) will die to save Mark Wahlberg. Nevertheless, it seems as though Peter Berg — who had a serious misfire with Battleship — is getting back to his Friday Night Lights tone. There’s Explosions in the Sky (or at least, someone who sounds like them), Peter Gabriel doing a David Bowie song, and what is clearly a bro-military movie designed to make you weep.

It’ll probably work, too.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
