The moviegoing world still has plenty left on its 2015 calendar, but buzz for next year's releases has already begun to escalate. The Huffington Post has an exclusive featurette centered on one of 2016's first high-profile titles. Like "American Sniper" and "Zero Dark Thirty" before it, "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" chronicles military crews at a pivotal moment in recent history. In this case, it's the fatal 2012 Islamic attack on the American diplomatic compound in Libya.

The featurette presents reflections from the real-life military men who were involved with the incident, juxtaposed with footage from Michael Bay's movie. John Krasinski, James Badge Dale and Pablo Schreiber are among the actors who portray the main players in what has become an inciting incident in global politics, and what could now become one of 2016's first big-screen hits. 

Watch the clip below. "13 Hours" opens Jan. 15.
