Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for 12 Strong.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) star in 12 Strong, a new war drama from Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media, and Jerry Bruckheimer Films.
12 Strong is based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers and tells the story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11.
12 Strong’s synopsis reads as: “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 (Navid 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 Afghan 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.
12 Strong’s main cast also includes Michael Peña (Ant-Man) and Navid Negahban (American Sniper). The 12 Strong U.S. Special Forces team is 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 (The Strain).
Elsa Pataky (the Fast & Furious films), plays Nelson’s wife, and William Fichtner (Armageddon) and Rob Riggle (The Hangover) as U.S. Army officers.
