Widely recognized (and critically disparaged) for a certain kind of action-packed big-budget blockbuster, Michael Bay has directed a new film taking on significantly more gravity than any one of the various Transformers films. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is based on Mitchell Zuckoff‘s non-fiction book about the dual 2012 attacks on American compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The story details the efforts of six members of a security crew who sought to provide protection during the attacks, which ultimately resulted in four American casualties. Starring John Krasinski, James Badge Dale and Pablo Schreiber, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on January 15, 2016.
