The modern-day war on terror shifted into an even higher degree of urgency after 9/11. That's reflected in 12 Strong, which follows the first Special Forces team that was deployed to Afghanistan after the horrific acts that took thousands of civilian lives and forever scarred the nation.
A new trailer reflects the great intensity that drives the military team under the leadership of a new captain as they work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban. The odds were against them, but they were determined to achieve victory, even if it meant riding into battle on horseback.
Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña and Trevante Rhodes lead the cast; watch the new trailer below. 12 Strong will open in theaters nationwide on January 19, 2018.
