Action Star, filmmaker and musician Johnny Strong (Sinners and Saints, Daylight’s End, Blackhawk Down) is back in action as he makes his directorial debut along with longtime action collaborator William Kaufman in the super charged, military actioner WarHorse One. Well Go USA is launching a select theatrical engagement for the movie before it hits Digital and VOD this Fourth of July. Check out the patriotic new key art, trailer and exclusive stills below for the adrenaline, bullet filled action film!
WARHORSE ONE follows a desperate civilian rescue attempt set in motion shortly after the 2021 withdrawal of the United States military from Afghanistan. After a SEAL team helicopter is downed en route to the rendezvous point, the lone surviving operator must evade hostile insurgents and navigate treacherous terrain while guiding his one remaining charge—a traumatized young girl—to safety.
Johnny Strong (Black Hawk Down, The Fast and the Furious), newcomer and stand-out child actor Athena Durner and Raj Kala (Black Adam, Mayday) star in the military action film WARHORSE ONE, which will open in select North American theaters June 30 from Well Go USA. The film will serve as Strong’s directorial debut and will also be available On Demand and Digital July 4.
In a world of superhero movies and heavy CGI action, some heroes are real and some still do it vintage 80’s style. As you can see by the above tease, Strong is up against a rock and a hard place but thankfully that’s where he excels so the odds are probably just about even. Plus it looks like Strong is playing the role of savior to a little girl while taking aim at the bad guys that are closing in on the lone wolf. In one of the earlier teasers, the girl proclaims, “I hope the bad guys don’t get us,” to which Strong answers “they won’t.”
The Johnny Strong, William Kaufman co-directorial effort Warhorse One which sees Strong starring as a Navy SEAL trying to survive when a mission goes awry. To add to the difficulty factor of navigating the rough Afghanistan terrain and ruthless enemy soldiers, Strong must also protect a young girl as well. You might need some tissues to go along with viewing this one as it looks drama heavy to coincide with the hyper realistic combat action set pieces.
Johnny Strong brings a sense of authenticity to the proceedings with his knowledge in all things weaponry and tactics and he has that certain something when it comes to leading man bravado. Strong has that old school, throwback attitude that was welcome in the 80’s and 90’s and is sorely lacking in today’s cinema and he is one kick ass anti-hero that excels in the most explosive sequences of action cinema. Not to mention that he has extreme onscreen gravitas to spare.
