Trailer: Fury

Brad Pitt has headed back to WWII combat duty, this time with with director David Ayer and co-stars Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena and Jason Isaacs. Fury offers a straight up story with handsome production values, but if the trailer is any indication, not much else. Ayer is most known for his morally ambiguous big-city cop dramas such as Harsh Times and End of Watch (he also wrote Training Day and Dark Blue) all of which I have found easy to skip, I don’t think I ever seen an Ayer film directed by Ayer; maybe it will be this one.

As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, the men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

  1. It may look like a cookie-cutter WWII drama with perhaps a better budget than many, but I’m actually down with this trailer. I’m looking forward to this one.

  2. Yes. A true tank battle is something I still want to see on screen with a big budget. I saw that tank movie last year at MSPIFF and it was fine, but this looks much more epic.

    Also, END OF WATCH is easily one of the best films of 2012. I wasn’t a big fan of HARSH TIME, but I was blown away by END OF WATCH.

    Anyway, this looks pretty good.
