Universal Moves Mark Wahlberg’s ‘Love Survivor’ Into Awards Race Mix
As other movies have tried (and failed) in the past, Universal made a decision yesterday to open Lone Survivor in limited release December 27, 2013. Audiences in Los Angeles and New York will get to see the premiere, while other audiences must wait until early 2013. While I led with the idea of this failing, it did work for last year’s Zero Dark Thirty.
Directed by Peter Berg (Battleship), the action war film starring Mark Wahlberg and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) is based on a novel by Marcus Luttrell about an ill-fated mission in Afghanistan.
For those interested in the film, mark your calendars now. Most audiences won’t see it until January 10.
