‘Lone Survivor’ Preview: The Storm Inside of Us

31 December 2013 12:28 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ad Block must be Disabled to view preview trailer. 


The Kingdom and Battleship director Peter Berg takes on a much more small-scale and intimate film (relatively speaking) with Lone Survivor, the movie account of the real-life “Operation Red Wings” mission that went bad in Afghanistan back in 2005.

Starring as the four Seal Team members forced to fight their way out of hostile Taliban territory are Mark Wahlberg (2 Guns), Taylor Kitsch John Carter, Emile Hirsch (Bonnie and Clyde) and Ben Foster (The Mechanic). Supporting roles will be played by the likes of Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games), Jerry Ferrara (Entourage) and Eric Bana (Black Hawk Down).

Berg had something of a misstep with Battleship, but films like The Kingdom and Friday Night Lights have shown that he can make a stirring and unapologetically patriotic film that offers some adrenaline thrills, to ...

Pain And Gain DVD Review

31 December 2013 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Bay

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ken Jeong, Rob Corddry, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub

Running Time: 129 Mins

Certificate: 15

When the words ‘Michael Bay’ are uttered in any film related chat or debate, the mind typically associates the director with explosions, destruction and the demolition of very expensive cars. For those of you that don’t know, Michael Bay is the director of incredibly successful, popcorn entertainment films such as Armageddon and the Transformers trilogy. These films are known for their numerous forms of eye candy seen in the shape of scantly-clad women and worldwide devastation, rather than their narrative or intellectual subtext.

Pain And Gain however, offers something a little bit different from what audiences have come to expect from Bay in the form of a serious drama based on true events. The film revolves around a man named Daniel Lugo (Wahlberg) who is obsessed by »

Mark Wahlberg says 'Entourage' movie dispute 'wasn't all about money and greed'

30 December 2013 11:00 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Now that the "Entourage" movie is a go, producer Mark Wahlberg is opening up a bit about the salary dispute that almost kept it from ever happening.

Back in October, Wahlberg blamed greed by the cast members for keeping the movie from getting made, while Adrian Grenier said he simply wanted "the boys" to be given the opportunity to share in the movie's success equally.

Wahlberg doesn't quite blame greed anymore, though. While sitting down for a THR producer's round table, he explains, "Everybody was saying it wasn't all about money and greed and it wasn't. It wasn't, necessarily. It was really about fairness." That sounds like what Grenier wanted, but Wahlberg continues, "What I was trying to communicate to the guys is this is an important movie for us to do at a price. Then if the movie is successful, like the 'Sex and the City' was, »

Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana Talk Lone Survivor, Working with Real Navy SEALs, and More

29 December 2013 9:05 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It’s tough enough to perform in a film loaded with heart, military logistics, and action, but in Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana were also tasked with delivering an authentic and admirable representation of real Navy SEALs who lost their lives in the hills of Afghanistan during a devastating mid-mission attack. With the film now playing in limited release and its January 10th nationwide expansion approaching, all four actors sat down for a press conference in New York City to talk about working with the sole survivor of the real-life ambush, Marcus Luttrell, the connections they built with members of the Seal community, the pressure to honor their sacrifice, and more. Hit the jump for the full discussion. Question: There must have taken a big emotional and physical toll on all of you. How did the families embrace you? Did you become like their adopted sons? »

Transformers: Age of Extinction Merchandise Photos Reveal New Look at Optimus Prime and Grimlock

27 December 2013 4:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comic Book Movie continues to update us on the merchandising front, this time giving us a look at some Transformers: Age of Extinction tie-ins that feature new Bumblebee, Grimlock and Optimus Prime art that will be used in connection with this impending sequel. Did Paramount and Michael Bay wait to long to give us the Dinobots? As each new image featuring Grimlock (voiced by musician Mike Patton) fails to register much response from the fans. Maybe you're all just waiting to see him in action when the first trailer hits before forming any solid opinions? Anyway, this isn't much, but it should suffice for any needed Transformers 4 fix.

Transformers: Age of Extinction comes to theaters June 27th, 2014 and stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Bingbing Li, T.J. Miller. The film is directed by Michael Bay. »

Review: ‘Lone Survivor’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster & Emile Hirsch

27 December 2013 8:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Your average rock, tree, or branch will never appear harmless after “Lone Survivor.” With its depiction of warfare in Afghanistan moved to the unlikely setting of evergreens and jagged cliffs, the most horrific moments of director Peter Berg’s drama come from a body in free fall—and its eventual landing upon each. Never mind the fact that surrounding Taliban forces rain gunfire and RPGs down upon four injured American soldiers out on a recon mission; nature is the true enemy, and the extent of its cruelty is explored to the fullest over the course of the film’s harrowing two hours. Bookended by lengthy documentary snapshots of Navy SEALs—a montage from boot camp to graduation over the opening titles, then an In Memoriam for 19 U.S. soldiers during the end—the film is foremost a tribute, based off of Marcus Luttrell’s 2009 non-fiction book “Lone Survivor.” We see soldiers, »

Lone Survivor

26 December 2013 11:20 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

It hurts to watch Lone Survivor…literally. I have never seen a more visceral film about hand-to-hand combat; I can’t count how many times I winced or jumped while watching the picture. Director Peter Berg, his actors and stunt team (headed by Kevin Scott) outdid themselves to bring this gripping story to the screen, and they have much to be proud of. The reenactment of harrowing real-life events is as believable as any movie could hope to be, and while the outcome is foretold by the title, I was still on the edge of my seat. Mark Wahlberg is a very physical actor and he is well cast as Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Seal who led a hazardous mission behind enemy lines to kill a Taliban...

Lone Survivor | Review

Casualties of War: Berg’s Brutal Depiction of Failed Seals Op Career Best

For the purposes of context, one may be interested in noting that Lone Survivor is actor/director Peter Berg’s follow-up to his dismal 2012 board-game based effort, Battleship, though originally these projects were meant to be shot in reverse order. Clearly, this film was the labor of love, and while it’s not surprising to learn that leading stars took a major pay cut and Berg worked for the minimum salary allowed, it is fascinating to see the heightened quality on display from the same director, cinematographer, editor, composer, and one of the lead actors from the previous effort. Certainly, this film isn’t bound to be everyone’s cup of tea as Berg has taken pains to create a brutal, distressing, and unashamedly in-your-face depiction of the atrocities of war (and sans a definitive political agenda). He simply relays, »

Lone Survivor Review

24 December 2013 1:58 PM, PST | | See recent news »

After watching Battleship and Lone Survivor, I have no doubt that director Peter Berg has a deep and earnest respect for America's military.  While one movie is a silly blockbuster and the other is based on a true-story tragedy, they both celebrate the honor and dedication of men and women in uniform.  Where I take issue with Berg is how he expresses his adoration of the troops.  In Battleship, a movie with aliens, spaceships, and explosive pegs, throwing in an appreciation of sailors is a nice sentiment.  In Lone Survivor, appreciation isn't a sentiment; it's a cause.  Berg's desire to honor the Navy SEALs who lost their lives on a Fubar mission is admirable, but the film's heavy emphasis on action makes physical endurance appear more commendable than deeds and intentions. In 2005, Navy SEALs Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg), Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch), and Matt Axelson (Ben Foster »

Box Office: ‘The Hobbit,’ ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ to Lead Crowded Christmas; ’47 Ronin’ a Financial Wreck

24 December 2013 1:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moviegoers will have plenty to unwrap in theaters Christmas Day, with a hefty eight films opening, including Martin Scorsese’s latest “The Wolf of Wall Street”, Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and the Keanu Reeves samurai tentpole “47 Ronin.” But auds still are likely to crown Warner Bros.’ third-frame holdover “The Hobbit” as the B.O. champ, with a projected five-day gross at north of $40 million.

“Wolf of Wall Street,” which Paramount is releasing at more than 2,500 Stateside locations, looks to have the edge among the new entries, tracking in the mid-$20 millions Friday-Sunday. Par expects the film to gross somewhere in the $30 million range in five days, with opening day expectations at around $7 million.

Meanwhile, Fox’s “Walter Mitty” and Warner Bros.’ older-skewing “Grudge Match,” starring Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone, are projected to land in the high-teens in three days. Both look to eclipse »
