We, The Marines is an action-packed, giant screen film that immerses audiences in the unparalleled experience of becoming and serving as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor and former marine Gene Hackman, the film uses the giant screen to honor the dedication, the service and the first-hand experiences that create the undeniable bonds among America’s “first responders.” The result is an inspirational and moving tribute to the lives and legacy of the men and women who honor and defend our country.
