Win A Pass To The Advance Screening Of LONE SURVIVOR In St. Louis
Based on The New York Times bestselling true story of heroism, courage and resilience, 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 bravery as they stay in the fight to the finish.
MARK WAHLBERG (The Fighter, Contraband) leads the cast 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 elite team who gave everything for their brothers-in-arms are TAYLOR KITSCH (Savages, Friday Night Lights) as Michael Murphy, EMILE HIRSCH (Into the Wild, television’s Bonnie and Clyde) as Danny Dietz and BEN FOSTER (3:10 to Yuma, Kill Your Darlings) as Matthew “Axe” Axelson. ERIC BANA (Star Trek, Hanna) joins the core team as Erik Kristensen, their commanding officer in Afghanistan.
The performers are supported by ALI SULIMAN (The Kingdom) as Mohammad Gulab, an Afghan villager who protects Luttrell when the Taliban comes to execute him; ALEXANDER LUDWIG (The Hunger Games) as Shane Patton, one of the youngest members of SEAL Team 10; YOUSUF AZAMI (Brothers) as Ahmad Shah, a senior Taliban commander who orchestrates the attack; and SAMMY SHEIK (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) as Taraq, Shah’s vicious second-in-command.
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. Based on the book “Lone Survivor” by retired Petty Officer First Class MARCUS LUTTRELL with PATRICK ROBINSON, the film tells the dramatic story of how a single decision resulted in unimaginable consequences for these SEALs and the fellow servicemen who tried to rescue them.
Universal Pictures will release the film everywhere January 10, 2014.
