LONE SURVIVOR – Oscar Nominations

Lone Survivor is based on the failed mission, “Operation Red Wings”, which tasked four members of SEAL Team 10 on June 28, 2005 to kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. They were quickly compromised and fell under attack with Marcus Luttrell being the only member to survive and evade capture.

Lone Survivor is proud to announce to have been nominated by the Academy Awards in the following categories:

Best Sound Editing – Wylie Stateman
Best Sound Mixing – Andy Koyama, Beau Borders and David Brownlow

In addition to the recent Academy nominations, the Critics Choice Movie Awards has awarded Lone Survivor with the following:

Won – Best Action Movie
Won – Best Actor in an Action Movie (Mark Wahlberg)

Following its #1 weekend release, Lone Survivor has grossed 50M+ worldwide after its first week at the box office.

Written and directed by Peter Berg (Battleship, Friday Night Lights) with Hollywood Studios CEO, Steven Saxton as an Executive Producer, Lone Survivor was a five year long project. Only needing 42 days to shoot with its $40 million budget, stars Mark Wahlberg (2 Guns, Ted, The Fighter) and Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, John Carter) worked at a discount, along with Peter Berg in order to expedite the films production. Along with Mark Wahlberg and Taylor Kitsch, the cast was further strengthened with performances from Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana.

Hollywood Studios would like to congratulate all Oscar nominees and offer thanks for their dedication and talent towards the film industry.
