A major motion picture that tells the story of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died fighting the devastating Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013, opens on Friday, October 20. Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion), “Only the Brave” is a tribute to these real-life heroes and the ultimate sacrifice they made, including our own Kevin Woyjeck.

On October 8, 2017, representatives from the Los Angeles County Fire Department attended the world premiere in Los Angeles along with actors featured in the film including Jeff Bridges, John Brolin and Jennifer Connelly.

“Director Joseph Kosinski puts the brotherhood of the unit front and center, emphasizing the bonds forged over sweat and soot. He directs with a sense of duty to honor the crew, and he does the job,” said Detroit News’ Movie Critic Adam Graham.
