Outgunned and outnumbered, Brad Pitt leads a formidable cast in the latest non-stop action thriller “Fury” with his crew of soldiers including Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs, and Scott Eastwood on a deadly mission behind enemy lines during World War II.
Pioneer Films releases “Fury’s” poster and trailer where we see Pitt take on the role of a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy who commands a Sherman tank with his crew and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
“Fury is not your grandfather’s war movie,” says producer Bill Block, “I don’t think we’ve seen the physical horror that the armored division went through. Outmanned and outgunned, they only won through true, raw fighting.”
“No one writes about men at their most vulnerable the way David does,” says producer John Lesher, who previously teamed with Ayer on his acclaimed film End of Watch. “In all of his films, I see some common themes: they are about brotherly love, friendship, fathers and sons, and some of these themes resonated quite heavily in this script.”
Fury takes place in late-war Germany, 1945. “The war’s almost over and this dying elephant – the Nazi empire – is on its last legs,” writer and director David Ayer explains. “It’s a different world from your usual war movie, where we celebrate victorious campaigns like the invasion of the European continent, or D-Day, or the Battle of the Bulge, these famous battles that American troops have taken part in. One of the forgotten time periods is this last gasp of the Nazi empire, with an American army that has been fighting for years and is on its last reserves of manpower. The men are exhausted. In World War II, you fought until you either won or died, or were grievously injured and got sent home. The fanatical regime is collapsing, it’s a confusing environment where anyone can be the enemy – it’s incredibly taxing on the fighting man’s soul.”
