With January just around the corner, Warner Bros has released a new 12 Strong trailer.

Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon star in this powerful new war drama based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers.

Award-winning director Nicolai Fuglsig tells a story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11 when a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (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.

12 Strong will release on January 19, 2018.
