Lone Survivor trailer: war-movie Oscar bait?

This one has been under the radar so far, but it’s getting an awards push from Universal. I can’t say that I see “awards contender” in this, beyond the general “war movies as Oscar bait” thing.

As always, I’d be happy to be wrong about that.

I like Mark Wahlberg probably more than he deserves, so I should at least find something to appreciate here.
