12 Strong starring Avengers: Infinity War’s Chris Hemsworth has got a DVD, Blu-ray & Digital release date set.
12 Strong will debut on all three formats on 28th May from Entertainment in Video with a certification of 15.
In 12 Strong a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission.
There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince a Northern Alliance General 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 team —accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers, combining ancient strategies of cavalry warfare with twenty-first-century aerial bombardment technology to perform a seemingly impossible feat.
Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig and based on the acclaimed “Horse Soldiers” book by best-selling author Doug Stanton, 12 Strong also stars Michael Peña (Ant-Man) and Trevante Rhodes.
Michael Shannon, Navid Negahban, Geoff Stults, Austin Hébert, Austin Stowell, Ben O’Toole, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard, Jack Kesy, Rob Riggle and William Fichtner also appear in the film which has an adapted script by Ted Tally and Peter Craig based on Stanton’s book.
Produced by legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer (the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Black Hawk Down), together with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill (La La Land, Sicario). The screen play is written by Oscar winner Ted Tally (The Silence of the Lambs) and Peter Craig (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Parts 1 & 2).
Special Features on 12 Strong include ‘The Making of an Impossible Mission’ featurette and ‘Monumental Effort: Building America’s Response Monument’ featurette.
Chris Hemsworth is currently tearing up box office records as Thor in Marvel Studios latest big-screen blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.
