The trailer of Hotel Mumbai, about the November 2008 terror attacks, helmed by Australian director Anthony Maras, was released on Tuesday. The film recounts the attack on Mumbai’s luxury Taj Mahal Hotel, where dozens of guests and hotel workers were killed during a three-day siege carried out by Pakistan-based Islamist militants.

The siege at the Taj Mahal Hotel was one of a coordinated series of attacks across Mumbai in which more than 160 people were killed and hundreds wounded.
