Michael Bay’s 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi trailer released

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for “13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” a film that was directed by Michael Bay. Set to release in theaters on January 15, 2016, the film stars Pablo Schreiber, John Krasinski and Toby Stephens.

The drama-thriller follows an American Ambassador is killed during an attack at a U.S. compound in Libya as a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos. Chuck Hogan wrote the adaptation for the film, which is based on the popular book by Mitchell Zuckoff.

This marks the first trailer that has been released for the highly-anticipated film. 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi will hit theaters nationwide on January 15, 2016. The later release date gives you plenty of time to read Zuckoff’s novel however.

The publisher describes the book starting, “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.” The description goes on to say, “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.”
