Paramount Pictures has released brand-new images and the main trailer for “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.” The latter may be viewed below.
Directed by Michael Bay, the action-thriller depicts the assault of the United States embassy in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 that led to the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

As the titular soldiers, the film stars John Krasinski along with James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Pablo Schreiber and David Denman.
The screenplay was penned by The Strain author/writer Chuck Hogan based on the non-fiction book by Michtell Zuckoff.
“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” opens across the Philippines on January 27, 2016 and is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
