Michael Bay's 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI Unveils Its First Trailer
Blockbuster director Michael Bay is tentatively off the radar from making alien robots fight each other in epic death duels. Still though, it's in films like his latest, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi, that he continues to illuminate the best image of military might, and here and now through the conception of Chuck Hogan's script based on the tumultous events that took place in Libya in 2012, and Mitchell Zuckoff's subsequent book in 2014.
On the evening of September 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, a group of Islamist militants attack on the American diplomatic compound and a nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. They kill four Americans, including a US Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens. A security team of six members fight to defend the remaining Americans.
