Mark Wahlberg Leads SEAL Team Into Battle in Universal’s ‘Lone Survivor’ Trailer (VIDEO)

Pic also stars Taylor Kitsch and Ben Foster

With Mark Wahlberg’s “2 Guns” aiming for the top spot at the box office this weekend, Universal is taking advantage of his spotlight by releasing the trailer for his next pic, “Lone Survivor” which bows this December.

Pic is helmed by Pete Berg and features and all-star that includes Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana. Story is based on the true story of a four-man Navy SEAL team fighting off the Taliban in the Afghan mountains after their mission is botched.

The trailer marks the second award season bait film to release a trailer today, as Sony unveiled their first teaser for the David O. Russell pic “American Hustle” earlier.

“Lone Survivor” had been dated to bow on Jan. 10, 2014, but Uni execs who saw early footage felt it warranted an award-season release by giving it a limited bow in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 27.
