Best Quotes from Trailer:
Marsh: I worked this blaze near Montana, in the blink of an eye this fire everywhere, and then charging out of these flames comes this bear on fire. That was the most beautiful and terrible thing I’ve ever seen.
Brendan McDonough: I heard you guys had some slots available.
Firefighter: Are you lost or…
Marsh: We’ve got one slot open.
Marsh: Do you know what we’re training for?
Brendan McDonough: Hotshots get to engage the fire directly. If you give me a chance I won’t let you down. I just had a daughter and I just really want to give her what I never had.
Man #1: A sea of team of six picks up firefighters.
Marsh: Sooner or later a fire is going to come knocking in our hometown. I’ve been training for over four years. We’ve got all our hours, all our qualifications, but until we’re certified Hotshots my crew won’t even be able to set foot on the line.
Man #1: I told you it wouldn’t be easy.
