Horse Soldiers tells the true story of a small band of American soldiers in Afghanistan joining forces with local Afghan troops to fight the Taliban on horseback, navigating the unforgiving terrain with WWI-era tactics. To prepare, Hemsworth, who plays Captain Mitch Nelson, took the chance to quiz some of the US soldiers who were there. “You’re hanging on to every word they say,” he tells Empire in the new issue, “because half your brain is thinking, ‘That couldn’t have happened,’ and the second half is immediately thinking, ‘How do we put that in the film?’”


It's a soldier. On a horse. Horse soldiers!


I predict a domestic total of $79,884,879.

Take 60 % off of that total due to the fact that C-Hems is the star.


I have a precise methodology. I've averaged the dom. grosses of all war horse films; my prediction is thus 100% accurate.
