Paramount has released the first trailer for Michael Bay’s upcoming film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Based on true events and adapted from Mitchell Zuckoff’s of the same name, the film is about the 2012 Benghazi attack by militants at the American diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Pablo Schreiber, and David Denman star. 13 Hours hits theaters January 15.
“13 Hours” presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack.
