Fury trailer

Hot on the heels of the great poster for David Ayer‘s WWII movie comes the first full Fury trailer. Brad Pitt stars as the leader of a tank squad that has survived much of the war. But the squad finds itself facing down incredible odds in the final days of the war, as it is saddled with a green kid who has never seen the inside of a tank.

Much of this trailer focuses on the relationship between Pitt’s grizzled vet and the recruit played by Logan Lerman. And it makes the film look pretty conventional… for a minute or so. Then the trailer breaks open and we see quite a few impressionistic renderings of the battle, as the strain starts to get to the men. Watch below. Read More »

Fury

The last time Brad Pitt got involved in World War II, it was all funny facial hair and terrible Italian accents. But he seems to be going in with a much heavier heart this time around, if the first poster for David Ayer‘s Fury is any indication.

Pitt toplines the drama as Wardaddy, leader of a five-man crew stuck in a Sherman tank behind enemy lines. The other four leads – Jon BernthalMichael PeñaLogan Lerman, and Shia LaBeouf – are notable names in their own right, but the first ad is all about Pitt. See the Fury poster after the jump.

Fury

Director David Ayer (Training Day writer, End of Watch writer/director) is being generous with his camera while directing the WWII film Fury. The movie stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeoufLogan Lerman, Jason Isaacs, and Michael Pena in a story about an American tank crew that tries to survive an encounter with a German army division towards the end of the war.  

Since the beginning of the shoot, Ayer has been posting an image a day to Twitter, and now that we’re a couple weeks in there’s a good collection of shots from the production. They’re not as polished and stylized as the header shot above (which was the first official image release) but they have a grit and atmosphere that works very well. Check out a bunch of more recent shots below. Read More »

Brad Pitt World War Z

The last time Brad Pitt visited World War II, he was scalping Nazis. Now he’s going to drive over them. Pitt, the star of Inglourious Basterds, has signed to headline Fury, the latest film from End of Watch director David Ayer. The film tells a fictional tale of a five-man tank crew who go into battle with the German army in 1945.

“I want to bring a fresh execution to the genre,” Ayer said in February when QED Entertainment purchased his script. “What these men went through is worthy of a complex, honest, hard portrayal. This will have incredible, visceral action and complex, rich characters. I plan to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience.” Read More »
