HOTCHKA has partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures to offer readers in the Baltimore area a chance to download advance screening passes for the new true military drama 12 Strong starring Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, Navid Negahban, Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Elsa Pataki, William Fichtner, and Rob Riggle.
The story of heroism is based on true events that unfolded a world away in the harrowing 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.
✦ The screening will take place Tuesday, January 16, 7:30 PM at AMC Columbia.
✦ Passes do not guarantee seats. Please plan to arrive at least one hour early. HOTCHKA has no control over the number of passes allotted or seating at the theater.
12 Strong has a run time of 2 hours and is rated R for war violence and language throughout. No one under 17 admitted without adult guardian.
