Michael Bay's True Story Action Thriller '13 Hours' Official Trailer Drops Online!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

The trailer for Michael Bay's first film since the highly underrated Pain and Gain besides all that "Transformers Crap Aroma" is here, and is surprisingly in the form of a serious political action thriller based on a true story.  The film is called 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi and it actually looks really good and stars John Krasinski from The Office, among many other notable character actors.

The film is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book 13 Hours about the pair of terrorist attacks on American compounds in Libya on September 11, 2012.  Here is the Official Synopsis from the book:

13 HOURS presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack. 13 HOURS sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Written by New York Times bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff, this riveting book takes readers into the action-packed story of heroes who laid their lives on the line for one another, for their countrymen, and for their country. 13 HOURS is a stunning, eye-opening, and intense book–but most importantly, it is the truth. The story of what happened to these men–and what they accomplished–is unforgettable.
