The first trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is out, offering a glimpse of Michael Bay’s latest directorial undertaking.
The red band trailer features plenty of Bay’s hallmark explosions and actions scenes, though with a decidedly more serious tone in its depiction of the 2012 attacks in Libya.
The movie is adapted from the book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, by Mitchell Zukoff. The acclaimed nonfiction book, released last fall, details the assault on a U.S. diplomatic compound. The attacks killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, two CIA contractors, and and approximately 100 attackers.
13 Hours — which stars John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Toby Stephens, and Pablo Schreiber — is due in theaters Jan. 15, 2016.
