Josh Brolin in Only the Brave

Only The Brave Trailer #2 (2017) “It’s Not What Stands In Front of You; It’s Who Stands Beside You”

I’ve been a fan of Joseph Kosinkski’s since Tron: Legacy (still mad Disney killed the third film), and he’s got an amazing ensemble cast to tell an incredible true story here.  The trailer is definitely near-Michael Bay levels of testosterone but when you have a cast with Josh Brolin, Jennifer Connelly, Jeff Bridges, Miles Teller, James Badge Dale, Andie MacDowell, and Taylor Kitsch, you have everything you need to do justice to a group of incredible men and women.  Check out the official summary below.  Only the Brave opens October 20, 2017.

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.

      1. Try 2.0 one day. It’s one of the best games I’ve ever played. It has uber cool graphics even 14 years later, it expands the whole world of TRON, and the story is well developed and touching. The design solutions are just jaw drapping… The music is awesome too.


  1. Such an unusual choice for Kosinski, after Tron and Oblivion. I loved Oblivion, but thought Tron Legacy was a colossal letdown. The original was an important film from my childhood, and I was really hyped, but I don’t even understand when people rave about the soundtrack. Wendy Carols for me! Wendy Carlos forever! And since the third film would have involved the grid people invading the real world, I’m kind of glad it never happened.

    However… when you commit to a trilogy you make the trilogy, so long as the first film is profitable and not a total bomb. If Disney reboots Tron at some point in the near future, and you just know they will, that will be really interesting.

    I think the biggest mistake Disney made with Legacy was trying to keep people away from the original instead of making sure everyone saw it. It is a cool, cool movie. The effects are so dated (of course they are, first use of CGI in a film) and yet the aesthetic works today. There is just something about it. Modern people unfamiliar with the film would not have thought it was hokey, they would have flipped out, and if not, they’re not the audience for the sequel. But you needed to see the original to understand Legacy, and Disney needed to push the old one on home media, in a major way. Foolish that they did not.

    1. It is a very different look for Kosinski and I liked Oblivion as well, but I fricking love Tron: Legacy. I think it takes the first film and raises it story-wise, I think it’s a much stronger film, the F/X are astounding and Daft Punk’s score is some of the most listened to music on my iPod. I thought they took the initial world created in the game and blew it up into an even bigger game, and I will always hate that Tomorrowland cost Tron 3 its chance at being made.

      1. Non-sequitur, but Harry Dean Stanton is gone, and he passes my pang test: I got a pang when I heard. I often don’t fully realize the affection I had for an actor until that moment. He was one of a kind, so subtle yet so expressive.

      2. The first Tron is like a fairy tale from the dawn of the digital age. It’s much closer to The Wizard of Oz than The Matrix. Legacy failed to capture that. I liked the first thirty minutes, but after that it got bogged down, lost its energy. I can’t fault the look of the film, which was fantastic, but the nightclub scenes should have been the highlight of the whole movie, and they so were not. The saving grace was Jeff Bridges. It’s easy to overlook how weird his affect always is, because he’s so ubiquitous, but the Dude is charismatic, and abides.


      3. The nightclub scene and Michael Sheen were cringe worthy agreed but I think the rest of the film is pretty flawless. The Dude abides indeed.
