Mark Wahlberg blasts Hollywood privilege at 'Lone Survivor' premiere: 'I'm sorry for losing my sh-t'

Mark Wahlberg has never been one to shy away from the truth.

Even so, at the premiere of Lone Survivor at the AFI Fest Tuesday night in Los Angeles, the veteran actor and producer shocked the audience with his candor about his role in Lone Survivor, an adaptation of Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell’s account of his Navy SEALS mission in Afghanistan in July of 2005, which director Peter Berg recreates with harrowing, explicit, and relentless precision.

When Wahlberg took the stage with Berg and Petty Officer Luttrell after the credits rolled for a brief Q&A, he looked distraught and distracted. After Luttrell explained how he and Berg teamed up for the film, the moderator, Festival Director Jacqueline Lyanga, turned to Wahlberg to ask about his rigorous training and the rough shoot. Wahlberg looked visibly pained by the question and started on what would become an almost five-minute monologue. “For actors to sit there and talk about ‘oh I went to SEAL training’? I don’t give a f-ck what you did. You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f-cking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours,” Wahlberg said.

New 'Lone Survivor' trailer: Will a bloodied Mark Wahlberg live to get the girl?

The prototypical sounds of war films — the thick whirring of helicopter blades, tumbling rocks from explosions, frantic yelling on satellite phones, and the clink-clunk scattering of artillery shells — all have their moment in the newest trailer for Lone Survivor, but there’s also the sound of average-Joe chit-chat:

“Did she ask about me?” Marcus Luttrell (played by Mark Wahlberg) asks fellow U.S. Navy SEAL Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch) about a cute girl from a Coldplay concert. Despite their risky operative, he’s still just a guy who wants to get the girl.

Wahlberg stars as Luttrell, who penned the 2007 memoir Lone Survivor about a covert al-Qaeda mission that ran into trouble when their team faced an ambush Taliban attack. Directed by Peter Berg, it also stars Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana.

'Entourage' movie: 'It's a go,' tweets Doug Ellin

Just two days ago, Entourage creator Doug Ellin seemed pessimistic about the future of HBO and Warner Bros.’s Entourage movie — which was greenlit back in January, then delayed, allegedly because all its stars wanted to be paid as much as Jeremy Piven. When a fan asked Ellin via Twitter to give a hint as to when the movie was coming, Ellin replied with a wistful “if only I knew.”

What a difference 24 hours make! Last night, word broke that after months of uncertainty, the movie is finally, definitely happening. (Presumably, hugging it out played a role.)

The news was actually first announced by Jerry Ferrara, who played street smart driver Turtle on the comedy:

Four years after the war in Chicago, the Transformers may be facing extinction.

At least that’s the main takeaway from the perfectly hyperbolic new title for Michael Bay’s fourth franchise installment — Transformers: Age of Extinction.

'2 Guns': Bill Paxton explains how he became one of summer's best scene-stealers

As we say in our review of 2 Guns, don’t let the film’s August release date fool you into thinking it’s not one of summer’s funnest rides. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star as an undercover DEA agent and naval intelligence officer, respectively, who’ve infiltrated a narcotics syndicate with the goal of bringing down drug kingpin Papi Greco (Edward James Olmos). The catch: Neither of them knows the other guy isn’t a real criminal until they receive orders to steal $3 million of Papi’s cash from a Savings & Loan but find $40 million more in the vault than they should. They have to work together, for real, to figure out who double-crossed them and how to save their asses from, among others, Earl (Bill Paxton), the bolo-tie-wearing, Russian-roulette-loving badass the CIA has tasked with tracking down its missing money. Here, Paxton talks about building the character, meeting Wahlberg in the ’90s, and his next films with Tom Cruise and Jon Hamm. READ FULL STORY

'Transformers' and Michael Bay rock Detroit: 'It's insane' says Mark Wahlberg

When Michael Bay and the crew of Transformers 4 descended upon Detroit, residents were warned to expect “simulated gunfire, controlled pyrotechnic explosions, precision driving involving squealing tires, controlled vehicle crashes and smoke” during filming. The Hollywood production didn’t disappoint. Detroit’s Grand Circus Park, dressed up to look like a ravaged Hong Kong, was the site of all of the above, as Mark Wahlberg, who takes over the franchise from Shia LaBeouf, dodged multiple explosions.

Watch two amateur recordings of the scene, which really give a greater appreciation of Bay’s talents — because you know this will look magnificent once it’s all pieced together on screen. READ FULL STORY
