David Ayer writes and directs film set in Germany during the final months of World War II, as a five-man tank crew faces a German force of 300 soldiers
Brad Pitt stars as the leader of a five-man tank crew in “Fury.” His team includes a new assistant tank driver who’s never even seen the inside of a tank, while the remaining members of the crew have forged a tight bond over years spent fighting together. The story takes place in April 1945, during the waning months of World War II.
“It will end soon,” Pitt tells his team in the film’s first official trailer. “But before it does, a lot more people gotta die.”
The movie’s tagline reads, “War never ends quietly,” before showing an epic confrontation that will see the tank called Fury in a desperate situation, as the men find themselves vastly outnumbered by the German enemy, 300-5. It could well be their final battle of the war, no matter its outcome.
David Ayer wrote and directed the film, which also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, and Jon Bernthal, as Pitt’s tank crew. It was produced by Bill Block, John Lesher, Alex Ott, and Ethan Smith. The Columbia Pictures, Le Grisbi Productions, and QED International film will be distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing to theaters on Friday, November 14.
