The 12th Man teaser trailer

The 12th Man tells the story of the Norwegian war hero Jan Baalsrud and his legendary escape from the Nazis during World War II. He is only one of twelve resistance fighters to escape the Germans, but the Gestapo is on his heels. Jan’s moral fibre, incredible strength and his courageous countrymen keeps him alive. But when he seeks refuge in a mountain cave he ends up being trapped by a blizzard for two weeks.

The 12th Man is directed by Harald Zwart and stars Thomas Gullestad, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Anders Baasmo Christiansen.

The 12th Man is due for a Norwegian national release late next year, but here’s a teaser trailer to keep us intrigued until then!
