12 Strong Trailer
“12 Strong 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 film also stars Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, Navid Negahban, Trevante Rhodes, Elsa Pataky, William Fichtner, Rob Riggle, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Austin Stowell, Ben O’Toole Austin Hebert, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard, and Jack Kesy.
Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig.
Written by Ted Tally and Peter Craig, based on Doug Stanton’s non-fiction book Horse Soldiers, about the CIA paramilitary officers and U.S. Special Forces sent to Afghanistan right after the September 11 attacks.
12 Strong opens in theaters on January 19, 2018.
