A few weeks ago, director David Ayer shared some images from his upcoming tank movie, Fury. The story takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime is in collapse and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank called “Fury” that battles a desperate German army. Even though these are just set photos, the composition on some of them is superb and highly encouraging for the visuals of the finished film. This is clearly Ayer’s biggest feature to date, and it could be really impressive if he blends the scale of a World War II action film with the strong character work of his previous film, End of Watch.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Pena, and Jason Isaacs. Fury opens on November 14, 2014.

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.
