Only the Brave 
 
   

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 is a tribute to the bravery you all display every day. As we watch the actions of first responders across the country in real time, please spread the word that ONLY THE BRAVE shines a light on these everyday heroes. Support our brothers and sisters by going to see ONLY THE BRAVE in theaters on October 20th.
