First Trailer: Hemsworth, Shannon In “12 Strong”

The first trailer has been released for “12 Strong,” the upcoming film adaptation Doug Stanton’s 2009 best-selling historical account “Horse Soldiers”.

Looking akin to “American Sniper” and “13 Hours,” the story stars Chris Hemsworth as Green Beret Captain Mitch Nelson who is sent on a dangerous mission to Afghanistan in the harrowing days after the 9/11 attacks.

In the unfamiliar terrain of the rugged mountains, Nelson and his team must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to form an alliance and join forces in the fight against their common adversary, the Taliban and their Al Queda allies.

Michael Shannon, Michael Pena, Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Said Taghmaoui, Elsa Pataky, and William Fichtner co-star in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced and Nicolai Fuglsig directed war drama which opens January 19th.
