Based on the best-selling book Horse Soldiers, it is story of heroism based on true events that unfolded a world away in the aftermath of 9/11.

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. Schwartz, Garrett Grant, Yale Badik and Val Hill.

The main cast also includes Michael PenÞa (“The Martian, “Ant-Man”) and Navid Negahban (“American Sniper,” TV’s “Homeland”). Joining Hemsworth, Shannon and PenÞa as the “12 Strong” U.S. Special Forces team are Trevante Rhodes (“Moonlight”), Geoff Stults (“Only the Brave”), Thad Luckinbill (“Only the Brave”), Austin Stowell (“Bridge of Spies”), Ben O’Toole (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Austin Hebert (“Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”), Kenneth Miller (“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”), Kenny Sheard (“13 Hours”) and Jack Kesy (TV’s “The Strain). Actors portraying soldiers of Afghanistan’s Northern Alliance include Laith Nakli (“24: Legacy”), Fahim Fazli (“American Sniper”) and Yousuf Azami (“Lone Survivor”), and Said Taghmaoui (“Wonder Woman”) as a Taliban military leader. Also seen in the film are Elsa Pataky (the “Fast & Furious” films), as Nelson’s wife, and William Fichtner (“Black Hawk Down,” “Armageddon”) and Rob Riggle (“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Hangover”) as U.S. Army officers.

“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.

Movie Trailer

[TRAILER] “Fish Out Of Water!” Warner Bros. Releases New Extended “Aquaman” Trailer!

Warner Bros. remains “unbothered” in its attempts to expand the DC Cinematic Universe, and from the looks of it Aquaman will be taking it to the next level in the titular superhero’s first standalone feature film! When we last left Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa) he, alongside Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Cyborg, managed to defeat Steppenwolf and stave an invasion from the latter’s homeworld of Apokolips. Well it looks like Aquman is back in action–this time not only to save the surface world–but his own home of Atlantis as he goes to battle with his half-brother, Ocean Master for the fate of the kingdom and the world at large!

The new trailer for Aquaman has been released and it looks amazing! Everything about this film screams action and thrills. From underwater battles and an amazing origin story to deadly sibling rivalry and super villains! Check out the full trailer above!

We have to say Aquaman may very well redeem the DC Cinematic Universe. Thus far, only Wonder Woman has been met with critical acclaim, but we just know the King of Atlantis has the potential to have a film just as great. We loved seeing Ocean Master, and more so Black Manta in the mix. We are about to see just how deadly two of the biggest villains in his rogues’ gallery are. Black Manta’s eye beams from his signature helmet, alone, are terrifying!

Based on the trailer we can also see that he is not alone in his battle for Atlantis, with Mera by his side. This film may very well show just how the two of them fell in love. The desert scene and the clip we see of them running from Black Manta and his henchmen, only prove they are quite the Dynamic Duo on their own.

Finally, seeing Aquaman in his iconic costume, as more than a king, and with Poseidon’s trident is EVERYTHING!

Besides the action and the story we are hoping in future trailers and the film we get to see Aquaman’s sidekicks and family including Vulko, Aqualad, Tempest, Dolphin, and Aquagirl. Saving the world was hard, but saving the ocean–which is infinitely bigger is even harder! Be sure you catch Aquaman in theaters everywhere December 21, 2018!

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

This will definitely be a fight for the ages seeing Adonis go up against, Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago– the man who killed his father. If Viktor is anything like his father this may very well be a fight to the death for Adonis. We cannot wait for the film to debut this fall, Creed was epic and its sequel will undoubtedly be just even greater. After all Michael B. Jordan is in it! Did we we mention that Dolph Lundgren, “Captain Ivan Drago,” himself will be reprising his role as well! Hmmm maybe he and Rocky will have a nice final showdown as well.

What do you all think of the first trailer for the film? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
