Chris Hemsworth (the Thor and Avengers films) and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals, Revolutionary Road) star in 12 Strong, a powerful story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11. In those harrowing days, a U.S. Special Forces team, led by Captain Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troop 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 Afghani 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 starring Michael Peña and Trevante Rhodes. Based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton.
