Michael Bay may be known for throwaway popcorn action on a massive scale, but he’s getting a little more serious for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
The film, which stars John Krasinski, Dominic Fumusa, James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Pablo Schreiber, now has a trailer, which you can watch below.
The movie is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book, which centres on six members of a security team. After the facility came under attack from militants angered about the recently release of a trailer for an Islam-bashing film called ‘Innocence Of Muslims’ and the anniversary of 9/11. The team fought to defend the lives of the Americans in the compound, although the attack claimed the life of US Ambassador Christopher J. Stevens and a foreign service worker, while two contract workers died in a second attack at a nearby CIA facility.
Chuck Hogan (The Town, The Strain) wrote the screenplay. The film is due out at the end of the year.
