SCROLL DOWN TO SEE FOOTAGE OF MARCUS LUTTRELL MEETING THE TEAM AND HELICOPTER THAT EXTRACTED HIM FROM AFGHANISTAN AT THE LONE SURVIVOR FUNDRAISING GALA IN SEPTEMBER 2011. PETER BERG WAS ON HAND THAT DAY, AS WAS GLENN BECK AND AND THE LADIES WHO STARTED THE BOOT CAMPAIGN.
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. 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. www.lonesurvivorfilm.com
