New Poster and Trailer for Hemsworth’s 12 STRONG Released

The Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon drama, 12 Strong, is coming soon and a new poster and theatrical trailer are here. The movie is based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers, a tale of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11.

The film is set in the harrowing days following 9/11 when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers. But despite their uneasy bond, the new allies face overwhelming odds: outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take prisoners.

The main cast also includes Michael Peña (“The Martian, “Ant-Man”) and Navid Negahban (“American Sniper,” TV’s “Homeland”). Joining Hemsworth, Shannon and Peña as the “12 Strong” U.S. Special Forces team are Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”), Geoff Stults (“Only the Brave”), Thad Luckinbill (“Only the Brave”), Austin Stowell (“Bridge of Spies”), Ben O’Toole (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Austin Hebert (“Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”), Kenneth Miller (“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”), Kenny Sheard (“13 Hours”) and Jack Kesy (TV’s “The Strain).

12 Strong is set for a January 2018 release. Check out the trailer!
