Broncos Thankful After 'Lone Survivor' Screening


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --After watching their own film at Dove Valley on Tuesday, the Broncos went to a local movie theater to screen the film 'Lone Survivor,' which is due out in January.

Also at the screening were actor Taylor Kitsch, writer/director Peter Berg and the SEAL Team 10 member that the movie is based on, Marcus Luttrell.

"Well, I think it's incredible. I think we were very fortunate to have Marcus Luttrell there – who was the Lone Survivor – and his family," Fox said of the movie. "It's just kind of the ultimate of sacrifice and commitment looked at through a movie. I think it's going to be great when it releases in January – really educate the American people and American public of really what these guys are doing over there to keep us safe here."

After the movie, Broncos players took to Twitter with their reactions:
