Mark Wahlberg and his Lone Survivor costars shared some lighthearted moments while filming the war movie, which recounted a 2005 military mission.

"Amazing experience in bonding," Mark Wahlberg, who plays the lead character, Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, told reporters at the movie's premiere in New York City on Dec. 3.

Actor Eric Bana, who stars as Lieutenant Commander Erik Kristensen, also attested to Wahlberg's words and spoke about working with his cast members and actual Navy SEALS. 

"It's a really special privilege," he said on the red carpet. "We really get a sense of humor and camaraderie. And that's what's really important to us as actors."

Ali Suliman, who plays Mohammad Gulab, also said that the set was "a lot of fun" and revealed that the cast members sometimes played football in between scenes.

As Suliman emphasized the great energy while filming in New Mexico, his costar Sammy Sheik walked on the red carpet and energetically greeted him. After the two hugged, Suliman joked with EnStars and said, "This is who I kill in the movie." (Sheik stars as one of the movie's terrorists, Taraq, while Suliman's character aides Wahlberg.)

The 36-year-old also went on to praise Wahlberg, who helped produced the film.

"This guy is really challenging and gives you a lot of advantage to create and be good enough," he said. "I believe he is one of the most really important actors here in America and so funny."

Lone Survivor is based on the ill-fated military mission called "Operation Red Wings". The assignment involved four members of SEAL Team 10, who aimed to capture a Taliban leader, Ahmad Shah. Luttrell, who received a Navy Cross for his efforts, was the only one to survive.

Lone Survivor, also starring Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster, hits select theaters on Dec. 25 and will release nationwide on Jan. 10th, 2014.
