In one way or another, all of Mark Wahlberg’s movies have involved him playing the role of the savior. In many instances, this takes a pretty literal form — Wahlberg protected Earth from alien robots in Transformers: Age of Extinction, protected...

It took a few years and a few fumbles before Taylor Kitsch finally made good use of his promising talents. Following the success of Friday Night Lights, Kitsch was miscast in everything from John Carter to an X-Men spinoff, but his recent roles in Lone Survivor and True Detective Season 2 have mostly delivered on that earlier promise. Kitsch is keeping the momentum going by re-teaming with Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, who will produce the actor’s directorial debut — a drug drama that puts Kitsch in familiar territory.

Originally planned as a reunion for Mark Wahlberg and director pal Peter Berg, the duo’s big screen version of the classic 1970s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man has been pushed back just a bit as Berg has exited the director’s chair. Screenwriter Damian Szifron has taken over for the new film, which gives the hero a bit of a pay increase with the title The Six Billion Dollar Man.

Teen Wolf and Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien has rapidly become a talent to watch — the young actor was rumored for the part of the new Spider-Man in our post-Andrew Garfield world, and while that didn’t pan out, O’Brien has just landed a pretty sweet gig instead. The actor has been cast opposite Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg’s upcoming Deepwater Horizon movie, which isn’t a bad way to transition from YA to more mature projects.

You can credit 40-plus years of inflation for the title of 'The Six Billion Dollar Man,' the upcoming big screen remake of the beloved '70s series 'The Six Million Dollar Man.' The project is in the early stages of development, but director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg are officially attached, reuniting the duo after last year's box office hit, 'Lone Survivor.'

The last time Taylor Kitsch and director Peter Berg teamed up to adapt a live-action version of a popular game, the world suffered through a 'Battleship' movie. Now, Kitsch and Berg have reteamed for a live-action trailer for the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare game, and even at just under two minutes, it's already better than 'Battleship.'

Dwayne Johnson's movie stock remains consistently on the rise, but should the 'Fast & Furious' actor decide to make forthcoming HBO pilot 'Ballers' a permanent home, he'll at least be in good company. 'Hot Tub Time Manchine 2' star Rob Corddry has officially signed on to the new Mark Wahlberg-produced sports dramedy, but will it be a permanent position?

'Lone Survivor' Review

War, in case you've forgotten, is hell.
I don't mean to sound flip concerning a very serious topic, but I'm not really sure what else to glean from Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor,' a based-on-true-story tale of a Navy SEAL operation gone south. It is a brutal, unpleasant way to spend two hours. The violence is relentless and unsubtle, and when the audio/visual PTSD smoke clears, there's the realization that you've learned nothing about these characters or the wider situation in Afghanistan. Berg's sole intent is to simply show the job these men do - “gotta pay the bills,” one character IMs to his wife. While slice-of-life narrative can sometimes be rewarding, in a film with as much manipulation as this it just isn't enough. 'Lone Survivor' rattles but it doesn't stir.

How exactly do you bounce back from a critical and financial bomb as big as 'Battleship'? If you're director Peter Berg, you go make 'Lone Survivor,' a war film based on true events that's already started generating extremely positive pre-release buzz. The newest trailer for the film has arrived and we certainly hope the finished film is as intense as it looks here.
