6 Days Trailer

"He's got a heart of a lion, and the brains of a judge." Icon has revealed a trailer for an action-thriller titled 6 Days, telling the true story of the attack on the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980. The standoff lasted for six days, with a group of SAS soldiers eventually breaching the embassy to put an end to the horror. 6 Days is the latest from the director of the Maori action film The Dead Lands. Jamie Bell stars as one of the special forces soldiers who is tasked with leading the raid. This also stars Mark Strong, Abbie Cornish, Emun Elliott, Nicholas Boulton, Martin Shaw, and Tim Downie. It was shot on location in London, and around Knightsbridge. This seems to be just a teaser and quick intro, but it looks like it could be good.

Here's the first UK trailer (+ poster) for Toa Fraser's 6 Days, direct from YouTube (via The Playlist):

6 Days Poster

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 is directed by up-and-coming British filmmaker Toa Fraser, of Naming Number Two, Dean Spanley, Giselle, and The Dead Lands previously. The screenplay is written by Glenn Standring, who did extensive research and interviews with various individuals who played a key part in the days leading up to, during, and after the Embassy siege. 6 Days is set to open in the UK starting August 4th, but still has no US release date yet.

Is it really "the true story" or "Inspired by the true story"?

Eh. They're selling it as the "true story" but I guess all movies about the "true story" are technically "inspired by".

The movement of the SAS over the balcony looked very realistic. I appreciate that sounds a strange thing to say but I've seen that actual footage loads of times and they certainly captured. Fingers crossed that they don't try to come up with some anti-Thatcher revisionist history bullshit to dumb it down. I remember the event and certainly for me it was a source of much national pride what the SAS and the authorities did on that day. The film Who Dares Wins with Lewis Collins isn't bad. It's not great but it does have an awesomely epic theme tune.

As long as it's faithful to the real events, I'm interested in watching this. Will definitely keep an eye on it.

Just in case you're all dying to listen to the theme tune for Who Dares Win - a healthy dollop of early 80's grimed up Bond-esque theming

Interestingly the cameras were left out the front on purpose, the original plan was to move the cameras or bloke the view.

I think it will be as close as possible as these things often are. Rusty Firmin seemed pleased just to get it released, think its struggled a bit.

Steven Lewis on Apr 13, 2017


If it's as good as the Lone Survivor, I will be happy.

It is truly trying to be a true hit. Looks like standard action flick, though ...

But it does David, doesn't it?

LOL, Strong...gotta love him.

Was just wondering yesterday what Jamie Bell had been up to... He really needs a BIG role.
