Watch 12 Strong trailer
Fresh from the enormous success of Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth has now set his sights upon his upcoming film, 12 Strong, a new Chris Hemsworth film based on author Doug Stanton’s fact-based Afghanistan war book, Horse Soldiers.
The film will tell the story of the real-life U.S. Special Forces team first sent into Afghanistan following the events of September 11th. Hemsworth stars as Captain Mitch Nelson who, with his men, must work together with the soldiers of the Northern Alliance — including General Dostum (Navid Negahban) — to fight the Taliban.
The trailer of 12 Strong suggests it is one of those films and is rather different from the usual stuff.
12 Strong was directed by Danish director and photojournalist Nicolai Fuglsig and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
12 Strong will hit theaters on January 19 next year.
