The kind folks at Icon Film Distribution have provided the first trailer for upcoming real-life drama, 6 Days; a film that chronicles the events that took place during the notorious Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980.
Featuring a stunning ensemble cast including the likes of Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, and Abbie Cornish, 6 Days largely follows the perspective of three people who played a vital part in the events at the time: hostage negotiator Max Vernon, the man responsible for communicating with the terrorists inside the building; news reporter Kate Adie, who was covering the events for the BBC, and Rusty Firmin, leader of one of the SAS assault teams that entered the Iranian Embassy to end the siege.
In April 1980, six armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London, taking 26 people inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid, the likes of which the world had never seen before.
6 Days bursts into UK cinemas on 4th August, and we simply cannot wait!
