New 12 Strong Trailer Arrives Online: Chris Hemsworth Leads The Cast
“The most important thing a man can take into combat is a reason why.”
“Nineteen men attacked our country,” an officer says in the new promo. “The 12 of you will be the first ones to fight back.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Also amongst the cast are Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Austin Stowell, Ben O’Toole, Austin Hebert, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard, Jack Kesy, Laith Nakli, Fahim Fazli, Yousuf Azami, Said Taghmaoui, Elsa Pataky, William Fichtner and Rob Riggle. Peter Craig (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Parts 1 & 2) wrote the screenplay. Watch the new 12 Strong trailer below and look out for the film in UK cinemas from January 26th, 2018.
