Brad Pitt Stars In World War II Movie ‘Fury,’ Trailer ReleasedBy: Val Powell - July 3, 2014
The trailer for Brad Pitt’s new movie entitled Fury has just been released. The movie is written and directed by David Ayer who is best known for being the writer of the 2001 Denzel Washington movie Training Day. Fury also stars Shia LaBeouf, Jason Isaacs, Jon Bernthal, and Logan Lerman.
The movie is set during the latter part of World War II. Pitt plays Wardaddy, a U.S. Army sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division who commands a Sherman Tank and his five-man crew.
In the first trailer, Pitt tells his tired crew, “It will end soon, but before it does a lot more people gotta die.”
In behind-the-scenes footage Ayer said, “They’re exhausted, they’re tired, they’re grief-stricken, they’re combat-fatigued. It’s really about a family under incredible stress.” The personal touch just might be what sets Fury apart from other World War II movies.

Fury will also be featuring the last Tiger I tank, which is still operational. The tank belongs to the Bovington Tank Museum and the production team was able to use it for the movie. It is the first time that a real Tiger tank was used on a movie set.
The movie had already garnered attention last year for an untimely issue with shooting. The filming of the movie started in Hertfordshire, England. There was an outburst from the public when the crew filmed one of the movie’s scenes during Remembrance Day and people saw extras marching on the streets wearing Nazi uniforms.
According to reports, the production team was notified in advance to stop production on that day as a sign of respect, but they chose to continue filming. Ayer was forced to apologize for the disrespect and trouble that the filming has caused among the citizens.
Fury will be out in theaters on November 12 in the United States and on October 24 in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
