'Seal Team Six' Prepares to Hunt Osama Bin Laden in New Clip (Video)
The Nat Geo Channel film detailing the killing of the al-Qaeda leader is set to air Nov. 4.
A new clip for National Geographic Channel’s Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden has hit online and shows members of the storied Navy SEALS receiving orders to go after the al-Qaeda leader.
“If it gets rough, we fight our way out,” the man giving the orders says. “If you get captured, you’ve got to get killed first.”
The film, detailing one of President Obama’s most successful moments in office, airs Nov. 4, just two days before the presidential election, and will be available on Netflix streaming 24 hours later. But National Geographic Channel president Howard T. Owens told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that the timing of Seal Team Six was not politically motivated.
"We’re not trying for this to be political film," he said. "We have a fall schedule coming out and we want to be able to promote that schedule." He added that the channel’s viewers had “a passion” for U.S. military history, and the film was “a great opportunity” to bring viewers into the fold for the its fall schedule.
The Weinstein Co. film is directed by John Stockwell (Turistas), and produced by Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker) and Harvey Weinstein.
The film won’t be the last moviegoers will see of the famed Navy SEALS. Director Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which also chronicles the manhunt for Bin Laden, hits theaters Dec. 19.
Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden premieres Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on National Geographic Channel.
