The UK trailer for the film has been released and is already generating a generous amount of anticipation. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Forster as a team of U.S. Navy SEALs tasked with the capture or kill of senior Taliban commander Ahmad Shah (Yousef Azami). The team known as the ‘Red Wings’ are dropped into the Hindu Kush mountains to discover the whereabouts of Shah but after their mission is compromised they are forced to flee and are trapped in a deadly pursuit by their target.
The poster leaves plenty to the imagination but the trailer certainly fills the viewer with intrigue. The title itself is a spoiler but that doesn’t mean that the journey these men take together won’t make for some gripping and tense brotherhood drama.
With a strong cast and a solid story, Lone Survivor could potentially be this year’s answer to Band of Brothers.
