Pictured above is a first look at Fury starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal for director David Ayer whose End of Watch made my list of Top Ten Movies of 2012. So to say I’m looking forward to the November 14, 2014 release of Ayer’s next film is an understatement. On top of that, I like the premise.
Fury is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
