Paramount released the first trailer for Michael Bay’s upcoming film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on Tuesday.
Bay is directing the film from a script by Chuck Hogan (FX’s The Strain). James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Pablo Schreiber, Toby Stephens, David Denman, Max Martini, and Dominic Fumusa star.
The trailer conveys a strong sense of dread before the classic Bay-inspired action kicks in.
“When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right,” the text in the trailer reads.
With a budget reportedly in the range of $30-$40 million, Bay is working on 13 Hours with a lot less money than he usually gets to play with on blockbuster films like Transformers. Here’s hoping the result is a return to form for Bay and a tight, focused action film that honors the memories of the American heroes who sacrificed their lives on that day.
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi hits theaters January 15.
