John Krasinski leads the charge in new 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi trailer

Posted on

Michael Bay is best known for his Transformers blockbusters, but his next film examines the real-life story of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The new international trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi focuses on the family man played by John Krasinski — one of the six Americans who fought to defend the diplomatic compound against terrorists.

Adapted from Mitchell Zuckoff’s book, 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, 13 Hours stars Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber, and David Denman as several of the American military operatives who initially responded to the attack.

The incident resulted in the death of U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, as well as numerous attackers.

13 Hours hits theaters on Jan. 15. See the new international trailer above.
