Michael Bay has taken a break from the explosions and battles of the Transformers franchise to work on something a little more intimate. With… explosions and battles. The first trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is online.

Written by Chuck Hogan, the script adapts Mitchell Zuckoff’s book 13 Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi. The focus is on six members of a security team who took matters into their own hands and fought to defend the US State Department Special Mission Compound in Libya when terrorists attacked the place. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and one of the compound’s workers died in the initial assault and two contractors were killed during another attack on a nearby CIA facility.

With the likes of John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Pablo Schreiber and David Denman as the troops at the centre of the true story, this is Bay firing on all cylinders and barrels, with Paramount hoping this connects with people the way **American Sniper **did. The controversial nature of the American administration's response to the attack and the political fallout might get in the way of that, but we’ll see.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi will be out in the UK on January 15 next year.
