Universal has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Peter Berg's Lone Survivor.  The film centers on four Navy SEALs on an ill-fated covert mission who try to neutralize a high-level Taliban operative, but are ambushed by enemy forces in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan.  This behind-the-scenes featurette explains the real story behind the film, and the ethos of the SEALs.  There's a heavy emphasis on brotherhood and fighting for the sake of the man next to you.  The tragic aspect is that at the end, there was only the "lone survivor", Marcus Luttrell, who went on to write about his experiences, and his book became the basis for the movie.  It looks like Berg has tried to create a film in the vein of Black Hawk Down, and I hope he's succeeded. Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, »
