As Paramount plots to expand the Transformers franchise into a full-blown cinematic universe, it has assembled a crack team of Hollywood scribes led by Akiva Goldsman (Winter’s Tale), all of whom are tasked with laying the groundwork for the future of the franchise.
Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil) is one member of said writers room, which also includes Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Jeff Pinker (Lost), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man), Christina Hodson (Shut In), Lindsey Beer, Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Recently, at the TCAs for Daredevil, DeKnight discussed what it’s like to be a member of such a sprawling team of writers and how he’s liking the jump from television to feature filmmaking:
You know, it’s that wonderful thing where features are now taking a page »

The Transformers explosion-wrangler is the latest derided film-maker to tackle a serious subject. Can he pull it off where these others have failed?
As a director who values sound and fury over tired old elements like story, characters and coherence, Michael Bay is not someone you’d expect - or hope - to handle a story that requires a sensitive (non-robotic) hand.

If you were wondering what Michael Bay’s been up to after finishing the last Transformers, well the answer is this war drama based on real events, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Of course it will have explosions, I mean what did you expect, it’s still a Michael Bay film. But aside from that […]

Paramount Pictures just shared the first trailer for Michael Bay's "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," which is scheduled for release on January 15, 2016. (Should somebody pre-order a ticket for Hillary Clinton?)
The action thriller is based on the non-fiction book "13 Hours," which chronicled the September 2012 attack by militants at the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. John Krasinski -- given no dialogue in this trailer, but clearly leaving "The Office" far behind -- stars with James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Pablo Schreiber, Toby Stephens, David Denman, Dominic Fumusa, and Freddie Stroma.
Michael Bay is best known for popcorn blockbusters like "Armageddon" and "Transformers," but he did give his trademark treatment to another real-life story in "Pearl Harbor," so it's possible he'll be doing something similar here. Is that a good thing?
Watch the trailer.

13 Hours trailer: Michael Bay’s real-life story of the soldiers of the Benghazi. 13 Hours trailer
The first trailer for Michael Bay‘s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of The Benghazi has just bee released by Paramount Pictures UK. The film, Bay’s first non-Transformers movie since the really poorly received Pain and Gain.
The film is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s nonfiction book 13 Hours, and will be released on 15th January, 2016 in the United States and the UK.
John Krasinski, Dominic Fumusa, James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Pablo Schreiber all star in the film which is written by Chuck Hogan who co-wrote The Strain series of vampire novels with Guillermo del Toro.
Here’s the official description for the book.

Michael Bay is putting his giant, transforming robots back in the toy box and tackling a somewhat hot button issue with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s recently released account of the infamous events of September 11th 2012, when six security operators fought to defend the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya when it came under attack from terrorists. Once you get over the fact that Jim from The Office (John Krasinksi) makes for a convincing tough guy, and that Bay has given away his obligatory and quite literal American flag waving shot in the trailer, there’s no denying this finds the director firmly in his wheelhouse, bringing along a fine cast of reliably solid actors, including Krasinksi, James Badge Dale (The Lone Ranger, Iron Man 3), and Max Martini (Pacific Rim). Time will tell if this is just the usual Mayhem through the lens of real life events, »

Taking a break from the Transformers franchise, Michael Bay has turned his attention to the 2012 terrorist attacks on an American compound in Libya for his new film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, and you can check out the first trailer below…
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 »

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi arrives in cinemas in January. Here's the first trailer...
Before he presumably re-embarks on his Transformers movie adventures, Michael Bay has taken a very different turn for his next project. He's directed 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi, based on the non-fiction book by Michtell Zuckoff.
This tells the story of the half dozen security team members who defended the Us State Department Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, when it was attacked. This took place on September 11th 2012, and the movie will bring to the screen what happened that day.
Bay's cast for this one includes John Krasinksi, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber, Max Martini and David Denman. Chuck Hogan has penned the script for the film, and the first trailer landed overnight. You can see it right here...
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is scheduled for release on Friday 15th January 2016.
2013 saw the release of Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor, the true story of Seal Team 10 and the failed United States Navy SEALs counter-insurgent mission “Operation Red Wings.” Based on Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson’s book, the film received two Oscar nominations for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, received positive reviews and went onto a $149 million box office gross worldwide.
In 2014, Clint Eastwood brought to the screen American Sniper, based on the memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History (2012) by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. The film became a box office success (worldwide $547 million), was embraced by moviegoers, received great reviews and went onto garner six Academy Awards nominations.

In 2001, Michael Bay made a film about an important moment in American history, and Pearl Harbor was the result of those actions. A film as infamous as its inspiration, it convinced people that Bay couldn't do subtle or reverent if his life depended on it. Could he turn it around with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi? Watch the trailer below and judge for yourself. Based off of Mitchell Zuckoff's book of the same name, 13 Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi, the film version dropped its trailer on Paramount Pictures' official YouTube page and it doesn't look completely terrible. The first comforting sign is the fact that James Badge Dale and John Krasinski actually look pretty bad-ass as the leads in the picture. Krasinski in particular is impressive, as this is probably the furthest we've seen him branch out from his days as Jim Halpert. »
Rare is the day a trailer for a Michael Bay movie drops and it doesn't involve a bunch of morphing machines and crappy jokes, but today is one such day as Paramount has released both a green band trailer and also a slightly extended red band trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Set for a January 15, 2016 release, 13 Hours is a political drama based on Michael Zuckoff's account of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. State Department compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi, which left one U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans dead. John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Max Martini and David Denman star while Bay directs from a Chuck Hogan ("The Town") script. When it comes to Bay's work, I'm an honest-to-goodness fan of his first Transformers flick, but the franchise suffers seriously diminishing returns thereafter to the point I didn't even bother with its most recent installment. »

Director Michael Bay takes us inside a harrowing 2012 terrorist attack with the first two trailers for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Paramount Pictures has actually released two full-length trailers simultaneously, a red band trailer and an all-ages trailer which is 9 seconds shorter than the age-restricted version. The red band trailer features some R-rated language, so watch at your own risk.
13 Hours is based on the book of the same name by Mitchell Zuckoff, which chronicles dual terrorist attacks on the Us State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya, which took place on September 11, 2012. The adaptation follows six U.S. soldiers who fought back against the terrorists in the attack, which claimed the lives of U.S. Ambassador Christopher J. Stevens, a foreign service worker and two contract workers. These six men went far beyond the call of duty that day, »
In an alternate dimension with no Pam, Jim Halpert and Roy Anderson have grown epic beards and decided that nobody should mess with them. (Actually, there are a lot of beards in here. How many can you count?) That's kind of how this trailer goes — plus some cryptic teasers ("When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right") and the wonderfully explosive montages of Michael Bay doing his thing sans robots. The film, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, is already generating politically charged articles, as well as comparisons to American Sniper (wow, that was fast!). Timing-wise, it makes sense: The film is slated for the same release window as Sniper, and it'll come as a Benghazi reminder right as the 2016 election kicks into gear. As with the book, Bay's 13 Hours will retell the true story »

One of several projects surrounding the much heated topic of the 2012 attack on a U.S. Diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Michael Bay is the first director to tackle and explore the events of the September 11 and 12 Benghazi attacks. His film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is based on the Mitchell Zuckoff’s book 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened at Benghazi. It follows the Marines both before and during the attack, veering closer to the war-torn action of American Sniper and away from the more conspiracy driven drama.
13 Hours stars James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Toby Stephens, and Pablo Schreiber, and opens January 15, 2016. Watch the first trailer for the thriller above, which perhaps sadly includes no Transformers (or maybe they were there! That’s what Hillary Clinton has been hiding!).
