The Malta-filmed Benghazi movie 13 Hours has finally got a trailer, and as expected it's dripping with the kind of chauvinistic jingoism to be expected from the king of explosive American blockbusters, Michael Bay - who comes to this based-on-a-true-story thriller fresh after Transformers: Age of Extinction.


Known for high-octane action blockbusters like Pearl Harbour, Armageddon and the Transformers franchise, Bay adapts the non-fiction book by Mitchell Zuckoff, ’13 Hours’ will dramatise a 2012 terrorist attack on an American Embassy in Benghazi. It focuses on a six-person security team that defended the compound during the titular thirteen hours of the attack.

Starring John Krasinski, Pablo Schrieber, Toby Stephens and James Martini, the film - slated for a mid-January 2016 US release - also features bit parts from Maltese actors Frida Cauchi, Elektra Anastasi, Andrei Claude, Manuel Cauchi, Davide Tucci, Steffi Thake, Joe Azzopardi, Marc Cabourdin, Alan Paris, Wesley Ellul, Andre Agius and Fabio D'Amato.
