Award-winning director Nicolai Fuglsig directed the film, which is 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”) under their Black Label Media banner. Oscar winner Ted Tally (“The Silence of the Lambs”) and Peter Craig (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Parts 1 & 2”) wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed book by best-selling author Doug Stanton. The executive producers are Oscar nominees and Alcon principals Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson (“The Blind Side”), together with Chad Oman, Mike Stenson, Ellen H.

The main cast also includes Michael PenÞa (“The Martian, “Ant-Man”) and Navid Negahban (“American Sniper,” TV’s “Homeland”).

“12 Strong” is set in the harrowing days following 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.

The behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Rasmus Videbaek (“A Royal Affair”), production designer Christopher Glass (“The Jungle Book”), editor Lisa Lassek (“The Avengers,” “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”), costume designer Daniel J. Lester (assistant costume designer on “Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Hurt Locker”) and Academy Award-winning stunt coordinator/second unit director Mic Rodgers (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “Braveheart”).

Slated for release on January 19, 2018, “12 Strong” will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Lionsgate is handling international distribution.

Marvel (@MarvelStudios) Breaks The Internet–Avengers Infinity War Trailer is Here!

Published

It feels like we have been waiting a lifetime to witness what will be the biggest superhero movie to date–Avengers Infinity War!thanos avengers infinity war

Superhero from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe are uniting to face down one of the universe’s deadliest villains–Thanos! The Mad Titan has finally opted to gather the Infinity Stones himself, but he will have to face down Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, The Avengers, as well as a coalition of Wakanda’s Army, and The Guardians of The Galaxy! Check out the trailer below!

Marvel Studios definitely attempted to break the internet with the release of this first trailer (you know there have to be more). We not only love seeing The Avengers back together, but the appearance of so many other characters–67 to be exact–is even more mind-boggling!

You might consider the appearance of so many superheroes at once for one villain to be overkill, but that would mean you’re not an avid comic book reader or you would know that all of the stones combined make him one of the most powerful being in existence!

What we can tell from the trailer is that the first wave of heroes will be defeated by Thanos–Spider-Man namely while in his Iron Spider armor. Next, we can tel you that Vision’s time is limited as he is powered by the Mind Stone. Thanos is coming for it and no single hero can stop him. Moving on; Captain America will get some sort of a shield, Winter Soldier is awakened to help in the fight, Iron Man will attempt to use the Hulkbuster Armor against Thanos, Dr. Strange and Wong will assist, and The Scarlet Witch and Vision FINALLY fall in love!

We know where we will be on May 4, 2018, and if you’re smart you will be there too cheering on a few dozen of the greatest superheroes on the planet!

This film is nothing short of wonderful. Despite having a recurring theme of death, it really can serve as a way of remembering those you have lost and remembering where you came from. The world this film is set in is nothing short of beautiful and magical, all while informative. I have heard of Dia de Los Muertos growing up, but I simply dismissed it as a Mexican Halloween celebration. Boy, was I wrong! The holiday is all about family and honoring and maintaining a connection to those you have lost. There really is life after death and this film really hones in on that. Whether you are a believer or not this is a film for your whole family. In the spirit of Thanksgiving–be thankful for everyone and everything you have around you!
