Sony has released the first Fury trailer for writer/director David Ayer‘s (End of Watch) World War II tank film. 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 looks like it could be a strong entry into the World War II-drama genre, and this trailer does a good job of emphasizing both the action and the character drama between the talented cast.

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.
