12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. Under the leadership of new Captain Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
Might sound like a great idea on paper, but in the telling for this trailer, it looks like another post-9/11 gung-ho ‘Americans will save the world’ toss.
12 Strongis released in the UK on January 26th, 2018, and clearly it’s not aiming for BAFTA/Oscar awards, so has just been dumped in that early-year slot.
Director: Nicolai Fuglsig
Screenplay: Peter Craig (based on the novel by Doug Stanton)
Also Stars: Elsa Pataky, Taylor Sheridan, Michael Shannon, Yasmine Aker, Michael Peña
