’13 Hours’ Release Date + Full Title

THR is reporting that John’s upcoming movie has expanded it’s title and the release date has been announced:

Director Michael Bay’s geopolitical drama has an expanded title, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, and an official release date of Jan. 15, 2016, Paramount announced Tuesday.

The project, previously titled 13 hours, is based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book about the 2012 attack on an American compound in Libya that left U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens dead. The story centers on the special forces team that attempted to rescue Stevens.

John Krasinski, Dominic Fumusa, James Badge Dale, Max Martini and Pablo Schreiber star in the film. Erwin Stoff is producing 13 Hours, which has a script by Chuck Hogan.

13 Hours opens over the long Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, a prime corridor for moviegoing. Last year, Clint Eastwood’s war-themed drama American Sniper did huge business over the holiday.

In a twinned move, Paramount confirmed what’s been rumored for months, that Star Trek 3 is titled Star Trek Beyond (the studio announced the news one day after director Justin Lin tweeted the full title). The movie’s release date of July 8, 2016, remains unchanged.
