In recent years, we have seen a wave of modern, harrowing tales of American soldiers’ heroism with 2012’s Zero Dark Thirty, 2013’s Lone Survivor, and 2015’s American Sniper. Interestingly, all of these films released in late-December or early-January and tell the true stories of real heroes.
This year is no different with the release, this week, of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Ahead of the film’s release, we get a look at the international trailer.
Check it out!
The new trailer provides us with a lot of the action we have seen in previous trailers and TV spots. The action is also something we have come to expect from a Michael Bay film. However, we previously reported on a featurette for the film showing that this film is more than just gritty action. The new trailer gives us a look at this, showing the toll on those who volunteer to defend us.
If nothing else, it should make you feel better that men like this actually exist. These are the guys that run to the sound of gun fire. These are the guys that will fight to the death to defend America from whoever aims to attack it. Take solace that there are good men that stand ready to do whatever it takes to protect and defend. I know these guys, and work beside them every day. They are the very definition of heroism. These guys exist, and it’s good that there stories are being told. Politics aside, these men are warriors, and as much as they don’t want it (and they don’t) it’s time they get the recognition they deserve.
Directed by Michael Bay, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Max Martini, Toby Stephens, Pablo Schreiber, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, Demetrius Grosse and Freddie Stroma, and is set for release January 15th, 2016 from Paramount Pictures.
