‘Lone Survivor’ Preview: The Storm Inside of Us

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 ...

Justified Season 5: We Spy Red John, NewsRadio Stars, a Prison Breaker, House's Honey & Others

29 December 2013 2:49 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

On Saturday as I screened Episode 2 of Justified Season 5 (premiering Jan. 7), I was prompted to declare on Twitter that “All the actors” appear in the coming cycle of the FX drama. Or at least it feels that way.

Many tweeted at me for details, so I hereby offer up this “role call.” Some of it, yes, has been reported here (and elsewhere) or glimpsed in publicity stills, while the rest, best I can tell, managed to slip under the radar. (But sorry, Twitter follower Ken: No Jennifer Lawrence.)

Interview: Peter Berg on Following the Lone Survivor

24 December 2013 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Peter Berg is an interesting guy. He's certainly not the first guy who ever came to Hollywood to become an actor, only to then become more involved with writing, producing and directing both films and television, but his resumé as a director runs the gamut from dark comedies ( Very Bad Things ) to buddy comedies ( The Rundown ) to a serious look at high school football both on film and television ("Friday Night Lights") and then big mega-budget blockbusters like Hancock and Battleship . His latest film, Lone Survivor , may seem somewhat of a departure for the filmmaker after the movies listed above, being a serious dramatic military thriller based on the autobiographical telling by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell of how he and three other SEALs were left fighting for »

Mark Wahlberg, Eric Bana, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsh, & Real-Life Navy Seal Talk Lone ...

23 December 2013 12:08 PM, PST | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Not only did the true story of a Navy Seal team’s Afghanistan mission inspire the movie Lone Survivor, but star and producer Mark Wahlberg says the whole experience inspired him to be a better person, while director Peter Berg reveals Eric Bana, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch were so committed to their roles that they snuck onto the set during the dangerous stunts to try to do it themselves. The Lone Survivor cast, director and Marcus Luttrell, the real-life lone survivor, talk about gettting it right and honoring the fallen on the big screen.

Lone Survivor, the new film from director Peter Berg (The Kingdom, Battleship, Friday Night Lights), is drawn from retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell’s harrowing true-life account of a covert mission that turned into an ambush in the mountains of Afghanistan in the spring of 2005. Berg along with

Kyle Chandler on 'Wolf of Wall Street,' Overwhelming Anxiety, and Playing the Perfect Authority Figure

23 December 2013 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kyle Chandler is one of those actors whose mere presence in a movie elevates it a few degrees.

While most will probably remember him from his two beloved TV ventures (CBS's supernatural-y drama "Early Edition," where he played a man gifted with a rundown of the next day's events, and "Friday Night Lights," as a high school football coach in small town Texas), but in the last couple of years, he's had an amazing string of big screen performances. Last year he starred in two Best Picture Oscar nominees, one of which ("Argo") ended up taking home the top prize.

And this year the streak has continued, first as a politician who is murdered for his honesty in thriller "Broken City," then as an alcoholic father in the festival favorite "The Spectacular Now" and now, spectacularly, as a dogged FBI agent who is hot on the heels of Leonard DiCaprio's »

Taylor Kitsch Is Single, Not Marrying Anytime Soon

18 December 2013 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Taylor Kitsch, best known for playing Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights, recently revealed that he’s single and on the mend following a difficult breakup.

Taylor Kitsch Talks Bad Breakup

“I went through a terrible breakup a while ago and [hockey] was the one thing that allowed me to actually not think about it for an hour-and-a-half,” Kitsch told Man of the World magazine for his cover story. “Us Canadians, we find that sh--t," he said of his favorite sport. "Hockey's like therapy for me.”

Kitsch, who got his hockey fix in the Valley in Southern California, is tightlipped about what his romantic life currently looks like – but implies there’s no serious relationship to report. "I'm not getting married next year, I'll tell you that much," the actor said.

Kitsch's Film Career

After two blockbuster vehicles for Kitsch, 32, flopped in 2012, the Canadian-born actor has no regrets and is only looking towards the future. »

Adrianne Palicki Comes Out of the Past in From Dusk Till Dawn

18 December 2013 5:09 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

With Robert Rodriguez launching his 24-hour cable channel, El Rey Network, it seems there’s been a lot of talk of the channel’s first drama series, which is, appropriately, inspired by one of Rodriguez’s earlier films, From Dusk Till Dawn. The 1996 feature is all kinds of badass, which is why Rodriguez would show so much interest in adapting it into a 10-episode supernatural crime saga. El Rey is supposed to bring the most multicultural generation together to enjoy the most intense and fearless original content you’ve ever seen. From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series has, so far, been fearless in its casting.

Thus far, the series has nabbed Wilmer Valderrama as Carlos, D.J. Cotrona as Seth Gecko, Zane Holtz as Seth’s volatile brother Richie, and Jesse Garcia as Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez. Joining the cast is Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki. According to EW, she’ll be playing Vanessa Styles, »

Omar comin.! If there.s ever been a film that could give the world a spiritual revival of Michael K. Williams. urban outlaw from HBO.s The Wire, it.s the upcoming sequel The Purge 2 from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions. Who better to run, duck and hide from on the scariest day of the year than one of TV.s most frightening anti-heroes? Of course, it probably won.t turn out that way, but Williams definitely joined the cast, along with Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford, Away We Go.s Carmen Ejogo and The Glades actress Kiele Sanchez. They all join the previously cast Frank Grillo (The Grey), as THR reports, which technically gives this film more star power than the first film, in which Ethan Hawke was the only redeeming value.
