'Lone Survivor' trailer: Mark Wahlberg and Taylor Kitsch fight for their lives in Afghanistan

“This Op is compromised,” says Mark Wahlberg as Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in the first trailer for director Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor.

Based on a true story chronicled in Luttrell’s 2007 book, Lone Survivor tells the story of a team of Navy SEALs who set out to kill a Taliban official in hostile territory near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in 2005 and get ambushed on the way. Wahlberg’s Luttrell is joined on the mission by Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Taylor Kitsch.

Universal’s first trailer is heavy on patriotic imagery and brothers-in-arms camaraderie as we watch and hope that, despite the title, more than one member of the SEAL Team 10 will make it out alive. Check it out after the jump.

Mark Wahlberg disgusted over Boston Marathon tragedy

Mark Wahlberg was in a somber mood at the New York premiere of his new film, Pain and Gain — still grappling with the tragedy that struck his hometown in Boston.

Earlier Monday two bombs went off near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and at least 140 were injured.

“I really didn’t even want to come tonight. I hadn’t really heard much — I spoke to my mom, and most of my family seems to be okay. It’s such a big event, there’s so many people there. It’s horrible man. It’s [expletive] disgusting, man. I just — I’m very upset,” Wahlberg said Monday night. READ FULL STORY

'2 Guns': Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg team up and bust up in trailer -- VIDEO

Two badasses — played by Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg — banter in a car and then (bam!) they rob a bank and then afterward try to (bang!) double-cross the other before realizing (boom!) that they are both, in actuality, good guys.

Welcome to 2 Guns, about a DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence officer who are forced to work together even though, obviously, they’re complete opposites. Washington and Wahlberg wrestle with and then shoot at one another, more than once. A woman held hostage cries. James Marsden wears glasses.

'Pain & Gain' red-band trailer: Dwayne Johnson gives his blood, sweat and toe -- NSFW VIDEO

Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain is about more than really large biceps. It’s about what happens when those biceps devise a plan to kidnap a rich man and take all of his assets. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie as the half-smart goons with a get-rich-quick scheme, the film’s red-band trailer gives R-rated insight into a world of poolside parties and the mayhem that erupts when things go awry. Wahlberg brings new meaning to, “Say hello to your mother for me,” the Rock toes the line for the job, and Mackie makes nice with Rebel Wilson in leopard-print lingerie. Plus, Ken Jeong has a very important lesson to share: “Don’t be a don’ter. Do be a doer.”

The total Seth MacFarlanification of this year’s Academy Awards telecast is nearly complete.

Now the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has confirmed that Ted star (and two-time Oscar nominee) Mark Wahlberg will present an award on Oscar night — alongside the animated bear who gave that film its name, who is voiced, naturally, by MacFarlane. READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: 'Mama' may take Jessica Chastain to No. 1 (again) over holiday weekend

Jessica Chastain is having a banner week. On Sunday, the statuesque actress won a Golden Globe for her performance in Zero Dark Thirty, which simultaneously topped the box office with $24.4 million. Tomorrow, Chastain will attempt to replace herself at the top of the chart with the Guillermo Del Toro-produced horror flick Mama. And she’s done all this while still performing in Broadway’s The Heiress!

Mama isn’t the only new entry this weekend. The Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe thriller Broken City will face the Arnold Schwarznegger vehicle The Last Stand in a quest to win over male action fans. Oscar hopeful Silver Linings Playbook is also moving into wide expansion, giving many audiences their first opportunity to see the award-festooned dramedy.

Here’s how the box office may shake out over the four-day holiday weekend:

1. Mama – $21 million
As Texas Chainsaw 3D proved two weekends ago, horror movies play well in January, and Universal’s latest effort, Mama, which boasts a slim $15 million budget, should have no trouble scoring a solid opening weekend. Jessica Chastain’s increased awards season visibility should lift the film’s prospects, as will the cache of Del Toro’s producing credit. Of course, hordes of horror-loving teens, who don’t care much about awards prestige, will likely make up the most substantial part of the audience, and in 2,647 theaters, Mama could scare up just over $20 million in its first four days.

A Brother Goes it Alone: Allen Hughes on directing his first solo feature, 'Broken City'

Twin-brother directors Albert and Allen Hughes have been making movies together ever since their mother bought them a video camera when they were 12 years old. For as long as they can remember, they split everything down the middle: “My mom raised us as communists in the best sense of the word,” says Allen Hughes, 40. “We had the same amount of Kool-Aid, the same number of Cheerios.” But being part of a directing team is like being in a band; no matter how much success you may have together – and over the past two decades, the Hughes brothers have had plenty, from their breakout 1993 debut Menace II Society to their 2001 thriller From Hell to their 2010 postapocalyptic action film The Book of Eli – there comes a time when you feel the itch to go solo. “As you get older, you get on different pages,” says Allen, who acknowledges that working with Albert had its stormy moments. “Just ask Fleetwood Mac about that.”
