All men are created equal…then a few become firefighters. Living here in the UK we can thank the heavens we don’t suffer constantly from wildfires that plague the likes of the USA.In Only The Brave they celebrate the courage and bravery of one of those team of firefighters. One of the USA worst forest/wildfires in history the Yarnell Hill wildfire, Arizona. Today Lionsgate films have sent us the movies second official UK trailer which shows the Granite Mountain Hotshots define what ‘Heroism’ means.
Let’s get one thing straight ALL fireman and woman no matter where they are, we owe our gratitude to them for their bravery. The Grenfell Towers disaster in London that they have an extraordinary human spirit. Entering a doomed building to try rescue any sign of life and the reception they got when they left from the locals showed you how much they appreciated that bravery.
As for this film, it’s a real-life disaster which wasn’t wildly known this side of the Atlantic Ocean. The setup of the movie does remind me of Deepwater Horizon another true-life disaster that wasn’t known as much in the UK, however, a story that has to be told.This is a movie that looks to celebrate those brave men who conquered the wildfire rather than twisting the story in the name of Hollywood.
All men are created equal… then, a few become firefighters. Only the Brave, based on the True Story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it – they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.
Only The Brave now has the confirmed UK and Irish release which is 10th November (The U.S date 20th October). The movie stars Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Taylor Kitsch, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, and Jennifer Connelly.
