"If I tell you everything, who'd have the guts to go in and put out the fire?" Sony Pictures has released an official US trailer for the Chinese action movie The Bravest, which originally opened in China last July. The epic fire disaster movie is about a group of Chinese firefighters who struggle to contain a huge fire after an oil pipeline explodes. The story is based on a real-life incident, the Xingang Port oil spill, and chronicles the firefighters' efforts to protect a city from the massive fire. Starring Huang Xiaoming, Du Jiang, Tan Zhuo, Yang Zi, Zhang Zehan, Gu Jiacheng, Yin Xiaotian, & Gao Ge. The Chinese are clearly getting better and better at making movies that look and sound like big Hollywood blockbusters. This looks intense.
