AOL's Moviefone has the first preview trailer of "Lone Survivor," the film adaptation of retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell's first-hand account of a compromised 2005 special-ops mission that left three of Luttrell's four-man team dead, as well as 16 other U.S. soldiers who attempted a daring rescue, and his harrowing tale of survival deep in enemy territory.
Actor Mark Wahlberg takes on the lead role as Luttrell, who found himself stranded and surrounded by enemy forces after they ambushed his team in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan:
The other men of SEAL Team 10 who lost their lives fighting in Operation Red Wings were Mike Murphy (played by Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (played by Emile Hirsch), and Matt Axelson (played by Ben Foster).
The trailer also features Alexander Ludwig as Petty Officer Shane Patton, somberly reciting "Ballad of the Frogmen" as the SEAL teams trained for their missions.
"Lone Survivor" hits theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on December 27, 2013, and the rest of the U.S. on January 10, 2014.
