seal team sixSeal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden premiered on the National Geographic Channel on Nov. 4 (just in time for the election), but I didn’t see it then and haven’t heard much about it. That’s ok, though, because now it’ll be brand new to us when it hits DVD and blu-ray on Jan. 8, 2013 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company.

And you knew the minute it happened in real life, there’d be a movie, right? The casting and production probably started even before the actual raid took place.

Based on the true events and even framed by real-time footage, Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden tells the behind-the-scenes story of how the founder of al-Qaeda and the world’s most wanted man was killed.

The cast includes Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodriguez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas, William Fichtner, and Kenneth Miller. It’s directed by Tom Stockwell and produced by Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker).

The events portrayed in the film were vetted by a team of experts, including a recently retired Navy Seal, a top CIA operative, and one of the most renowned bin Laden historians. So hopefully it’s a pretty accurate recounting.

Bonus features include a featurette: The Making of Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden.

Pre-order it on Amazon.
