We have another featurette for the intense-looking Navy Seal film Lone Survivor. It's called "Real Heroes," and it focuses on bringing these heroic men back to life on the big screen. It's actually quite emotional, especially when the parents of the SEAL team talk about their sons. This is just one of those true life stories that needs to be told.
The movie was directed by Peter Berg and stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster.
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 "Lone Survivor," 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.
The movie will get a limited release on December 27th and will go wide January 10th.
