First Footage from WWII Tank Film FURY Revealed in Production Featurette; Brad Pitt Is Wardaddy

     June 10, 2014


Sony has released the first footage from writer/director David Ayer‘s (End of Watch) World War II tank film Fury by way of a behind-the-scenes featurette.  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”, led by Wardaddy (Brad Pitt), that battles a desperate German army.  While we’ll have a better idea of what to expect tonally when a genuine trailer hits, this first look is extremely promising.  All involved seem to emphasize that this is a character piece, and the fact that it’s an original story allows Ayer the freedom to explore whatever avenues he’d like.  This is definitely high on my “most anticipated” list for the fall. Hit the jump to watch the Fury production featurette.  The film also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal, and Jason Isaacs.  Fury opens in theaters on November 14th. The footage and images come courtesy of Sony Pictures.

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.



    looks like it could be good

    Little to no handheld? Awesome! I’ve been intrigued by this film from the very beginning. Can’t wait!

    • Neven

      Ayer is somewhat a visual mystery to me. First he makes End of Watch in documentary style, than Sabotage which wasn’t documentary style but still a bunch of handheld stuff (Nicely done, by the way), and finally Fury — no handheld at all. A bit of an inconsistency, isn’t it?

      But yeah, I agree. Even if the film turns out to be a turd (For which i solemnly pray it isn’t the case), it will still look beautiful.

      • zac

        no it isnt…some styles you change according to story… and also those film cameras are a little bit heavier then those 5Ds ;)

  • João Paulo

    Looks good and sounds like hit drama for the holidays.

  • dickstretch

    Is this going to become the new trend for movie trailer teasers?

    • Neven

      This is not actually a trailer. But even if it were, I see nothing wrong about it. It gets you equally excited by showing you less footage from the film.

      • dickstretch

        I was referring to the fact that there was the trend of seven second clips that would be released days before the trailer, and now it seems to be a featurette that has clips from the trailer.

    I have read the script for this and it looks like the movie is going to live up to the potential of the script.

    • andi

      you’re so full of “insider” shit, stop it. Oh boy, I can access scripts! You don’t know what is going to live up to what, so quiet.

      • whoa!

        I’m sure he did read the script. It’s available online. I read it too and he’s right. The dialogue out of Brad’s and Michael Pena’s mouth are exactly what was written in the script. To prove that I read the script I can tell you of the 5-men crew who’s going to live and who’s going to die. If you want to know, read on….

        *****Warning: Spoilers below*****

        “Coon-Ass” played by Jon Bernthal will die first
        “Gordo” played by Michael Pena will die next
        “Bible” played by Shia LeBeouf will die after Gordo
        “Wardaddy” played by Brad Pitt will be the last to die
        Norman Ellison played by Logan Lerman will be the only survivor in the end

        If this movie stays true to the script, this will be a movie that no one should miss, I guarantee it.

        Anyone who wants to read the script themselves, can do so here…

    Brad Pitt is awesome as usual.
    Looks promising.

  • Neo Racer

    Woohoo ‘Predator’ laser flourish sound FX at the end of the trailer. +10 super geek power

  • MJ

    This would be so much cooler if that had a talking raccoon driving one of the tanks.

    So close ups of Brad Pitts face is the movie…I’ll stick to fight club.

    • zac

      why? you prefer his abs?

      • DEADP00L

        What person wouldn’t prefer abs other than a beer bellied redneck or Homer Simpson ?

  • Polarboy

    Have to agree with the facebook lady, Shia LaBeouf is an automatic minus point against a movie in my book. It’s a shame because this could be good but the guy is so off-putting.

    • Jay

      Eh, he’s alright. I’m not sure I’d want to be his friend in real life, but he’s a good actor. He mostly gets panned for his antics outside of movies, and for reasons beyond his control (when Spielberg tells you to swing through trees with CG monkeys, you better damn well swing through trees with CG monkeys).

      • Polarboy

        Ehh, I can see he has talent to some degree but screen presence is key and his presence irritates me. If I am going to go on a journey with an actor I have to find them likeable in some way or at least compelling.

    • Bullitt63

      Hopefully his character gets killed early on.

    I like the imagery, I’m just afraid they’ll make the characters too melodramatic and/ or incompetent. These are highly trained soldiers that rely on their training.

    The other thing that bothers me is this ‘original story’ thing. WWII is packed full of real drama and real (and interesting) people – it’s a wonder they would need to create a fictionalized fantasy version of that.

    I guess Hollywood has always done that, but I still have bad feelings towards Saving Private Ryan for making up shit when there are so many good, real stories to tell.

    • DEADP00L

      Because Hollywood hates real life – and facts.
