FURY Poster: Brad Pitt Leads a World War II Tank Unit

Sony Pictures has released the first Fury poster for director David Ayer’s (End of Watch) upcoming World War II action drama.  The original story is set in 1945 as the Nazi regime is in collapse, and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank called “Fury”.  Brad Pitt plays U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Wardaddy, as he leads his unit in the fight against a desperate German army.  This is undoubtedly one of my most anticipated films of the fall, and this moody debut poster hits all the right notes.  Ayer has been growing more ambitious as a director with his past few features, and I’m eager to see what he does with this eclectic ensemble cast and WWII setting.  I imagine a proper trailer will be coming our way soon, but if you missed this featurette, check out the first footage from the pic.

Hit the jump to take a closer look at the Fury poster.  The film also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, and Jason IsaacsFury opens in theaters on November 14th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Fury:

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 (Brad 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.

    David Ayers means this will be a very good, potentially even great, movie until the very end. Hopefully he had some more creative control this time, cuz most of his movies (especially End of Watch) stink of studio interference in the last act.

    Please don’t let Pitt have a Southern accent again….

    That is one stunning poster. It’s use of empty space and mood and color is terrific. It’s haunting and moving all at once!

    Perfectly captures the mood of World War II

    • The Flobbit

      It captures the hoplessness and futility of war.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        It captures especially the talent of Brad Pitt

      • DEADP00L

        yeah staring at the face of a tank posing for a camera and looking constipated takes A LOT of talent.

        It’s a lot of work getting a laxative up ones poophole after all.

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        don’t be so jealous dude. =D

      • DEADP00L

        I’m not, my brothers a Marine and we both come from a line of them. I happen to share his sentiment when it comes to war flicks. It’s NEVER about the highlighted war, nor the real soldiers or the truth; but about a fictional storyline with fictional soldiers portrayed either callously or melodramatically with units that never existed. In a movie war that normally has political correctness and agendas behind it – with heartthrobs in starring roles.

        There are enough of these movies.

      • Norbert

        Ayer was actually in the Navy and worked as a submariner, many of his friends also are in the armed forces so before hating a movie you apparently know nothing about please do some research.

        Also it seems you want it to be a documentary if you want all of it to be a step by step retelling of reality.

      • DEADP00L

        Is the movie about a REAL tank unit yes or no?

      • Norbert

        Why is it so important to you? You do realize you can’t make a 2 hour movie about a real unit without fictionalizing parts of it so it would by fake in your terms anyway.

        Also what are you doing on a movie blog when so obviously you don’t understand what a feature film is.

      • DEADP00L

        The answer is NO. Thank you. I look forward to Angelina Jolies movie however – about a real soldier in a real war. Who went through real shit and unlike this movie will be told by the man himself.

        Not so much to ask for as it turns out and not so hard to do.

      • Norbert

        You don’t realize you can’t make a 2 hour non fiction feature film? And how I am not assume you are a troll. Because if you aren’t trolling the only other answer is you are a bit slow and that kinda makes it hard to be an effective marine.

      • DEADP00L

        I am the BROTHER of a marine – you didn’t catch that? That doesn’t make me the marine. But I’m the slow one?

        I don’t realize I can make a 2 hour fictional war movie, I DO realize that, actually, that’s what I am complaining about. That’s all it has EVER been.

        It’s not much to ask for the real thing. You make it sound impossible and that fiction approach has never been done before, when really it’s been done over and over and over again. The Pianist was the REAL thing and that was told brilliantly told so don’t say it doesn’t work or can’t be done it has been done but not nearly as often as it should – specifically the stories around and about the soldiers.

      • santelmojack

        What is your complaint with the movies on your list? Are none of them, in your opinion, realistic enough? true enough? what, exactly? i think there are some war movies that can make us feel the true realities of war far more deeply than a non-fictional account or historic text.

      • Clarence Boddicker

        He (Mr. Norbert Korzus up there^), is saying that it is a film…you know, where people PRETEND to be other people in a SIMALACRUM of an event?
        The Pianist, which you mentioned above, was indeed fictionalized. You want to know why? Because it’s not a fucking documentary. That’s why. You are truly baffling.

        And, why don’t you ask some WW2 veterans if they feel a film like Saving Private Ryan, for example, failed to convey the hell of war, simply because it had a fictitious, or loosely real-world inspired premise?

        Also worth noting, none of this inconsequential bullshit that is nothing less than absurd to have to explain to you in the first place, is in any way indicative of the film’s potential quality, or lack thereof.

        Try documentaries, which are also inevitably non-objective. Or I dunno, read a book? But even this is also a re-telling of the event(s). Only the actual experience itself is true, and (this is going to blow your mind so make sure you’re sitting down), even THAT is still relative and subjective.

        Is any of this sinking in my friend?

      • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

        Agreed. But blame Hollywood, not Brad Pitt.
        The guy is talented, no matter what you say.

      • DEADP00L

        Never doubt it I thought Burn after reading was pure genius.

      • Norbert

        It’s just a nice poster. He may as well be looking down because he saw a penny.

  • DEADP00L

    Yep this is all about Brad Pitt..suuuuure. I look forward to a real WW2 movie that is actually about the actual war instead of WHO is staring in it. What FICIONAL unit it’s about and how gritty it was. The tag line is farcical too. ‘ war never ends quietly’ …well no shit? I’d like to know the idiot that believed otherwise!

    I shall not go quietly into that good night! Rage RAGE er …FURY! against the dying of war! er the LIGHT!

    Really, the real stories with the real soldiers who were there are enough. And they have yet to be told. There is no need to produce a movie about a fictional tank unit when there is literally decades of material to go by. The only excuse is the usual one – artistic ‘license’.

    • Norbert

      You do realize there is a difference between the movie and the movie marketing.

      Also whats your problem with artistic license? You can’t create interesting war stories that are fictional because one internet troll feels bad about it?

      • DEADP00L

        Oh now I’m an internet troll for wanting a true story told? Classy.

      • Norbert

        There are movies about true units and true evens. What’s so bad about this not being one of them? I don’t see how this movie being fiction makes it something bad or pointless.

        Also looking at your other comments you are a troll.

      • DEADP00L

        That’s because you aren’t apart of a military family who are sick of watching people who don’t know war reenact their torment while making money off of the misery that the real soldiers endured.

        Vets are living in our streets today as Zero Dark thirty gets an Oscar and this year is the 70 year mark of D-Day while Brad Pitt is Wardaddy. I’m sorry if I find that unnerving.

      • Strong Enough

        what the fuck are you blabbering about? It’s called acting. by your logic people who never were cops shouldn’t play cops in movie roles. No one is profiting off misery. quit being overdramatic. and don’t reply with “MY BROTHER IS A MARINE” we fucking get it

      • DEADP00L

        Yeah yeah it’s all babble and crap to you. We fucking get that too.

      • Sweet Pea

        There’s no way this guys brother is a marine… Unless he’s the guy with the mop and bucket who cleans up the vomit and shit at BUD/S training – that’s not a real marine tho bro.

      • Brian Jensen

        Lol! Excellent comment.

    • Santelmojack

      Art is about taking reality and making it something new, something different. And enough with the whole military family, pretty much every american has had a soldier in the family, that doesn’t make you an authority.

  • Bo

    Yea, okay. Pretty good photo/poster. I’ve got two problems with this film. One is Pitt’s character’s name. Wardaddy? Come on now, man! Let’s hope it’s somehow intergrated into the film as a nickname for some reason…otherwise it’s a bit lame IMO. The other is Pitt’s hip, modern hair style. I’ve been seeing young dudes wearing their hair like that for the past year or so. I’ve never seen a World War II soldier wearing his hair that way close on the sides and long on the top. It’s ridiculous. It didn’t happen and I challenge anyone to find me a photo a of WW II guy with his hair like that. And I really like Pitt as an actor, but I’ve seen him toting this hair-do for this film for awhile now and it keeps remaining an issue for me. Oh well…he is an actor and like Sean Penn they really love their hair trip…lol…but then again, who of us doesn’t?

  • Rob

    how does LaBOOF keep getting in good films like this…he made what good have a great film in Lawless unwatchable…

    • Norbert

      Well if Pattinson is geting roles then Beef can get them too.

  • Joseph M

    Will they show an Uncle Sam Needs You poster before the film starts?

    • DEADP00L

      Pure gold this comment.

      • The Flobbit

        Because you’re so starved to find a fellow hater that you’ll jump at the chance to promote one.

      • DEADP00L

        Sure that’s exactly it right? Yep yep uhuh.

      • The Flobbit

        Cool then. I respect an honest troll.

      • DEADP00L

        oh shut up you know I aint no troll. quit being a girl and stooping to the pussy retort – its gotten old and boring.

  • i AN LEGEND

    One of the best posters I’ve seen in a while.
