A Chris Hemsworth 9/11 Movie Is Dominating Netflix

The summer of 2022 was a great time for Chris Hemsworth. 

The Australian actor continues his rise in popularity with each project he contributes to. 

Netflix revealed Spiderhead, the thriller starring Top Gun: Maverick actor Miles Teller. Hemsworth also finished filming Extraction 2, which is a sequel to 2020's original. 

Chris Hemsworth may have a little more to celebrate, as one of his films is currently topping the Netflix charts.

12 Strong premiered in theaters in 2018 at the height action films about wars that American soldiers were involved in.

The story centers on a group U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers who were sent to Afghanistan shortly after 9/11. 

Nicolai Funglsig directs the film, his feature film debut. The cast includes primarily male actors such as Austin Stowell and Michael Pena. 

Hemsworth's real wife Elsa Pataky appears in the movie as his wife.

It was difficult to make a movie like 12 Strong, partly because the stars were playing fictional characters that were based on American heroes.
