Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for Only the Brave, the true-story drama about the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Directed by Tron: Legacy and Oblivion helmer Joseph Kosinski, the film revolves around one unit of local firefighters who battled the Yarnell Hill wildfire in 2013 to tragic results. Ken Nolan and Eric Warren Singer penned the script, and the film looks to chronicle the bravery on display from these men in the face of death, as the fire bore down on thousands of people.
This new trailer ups the intensity of the drama and I’m really curious to see what Kosinski puts together here. His previous two efforts were visual effects-focused, and so his dramatic talents will be put to the test with this one. If nothing else the cinematography by Claudio Miranda looks to be a standout, and Josh Brolin and Miles Teller appear to be delivering some intense, dynamic performances.
Check out the new Only the Brave trailer below. The film also stars Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Taylor Kitsch, and Jennifer Connelly. Only the Brave opens in theaters on October 20th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Only the Brave:
It’s not what stands in front of you… it’s who stands beside you. 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 nation. 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.
