Brad Pitt Leads Tank Platoon in WWII Movie Fury: Watch the Trailer
Tank you! The official trailer for Brad Pitt's upcoming World War II movie, Fury, dropped Tuesday, June 24, in which the A-list actor delivered the premise of the entire film in one line.
"It will end, soon. But before it does, a lot more people have got to die," says Pitt, 50, who plays a sergeant named Wardaddy in the flick. Pitt's platoon includes Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal, Scott Eastwood, and Logan Lerman.
The group shot Fury in London in 2013, while Pitt's longtime love Angelina Jolie simultaneously directed another WWII drama, Unbroken, in Australia. Fury takes place in April 1945, at the tail end of World War II as the Allies push their way into true enemy territory, Nazi Germany. Wardaddy, hardened by his experience with war, leads his five-man crew on the deadly mission.
David Ayer, who directed and wrote the screenplay of Fury, spoke to Us Weekly in March about working alongside the seasoned actor on the flick. "It was fantastic to work with him," Ayer, 46, told Us of Pitt.
Ayer has worked with numerous Hollywood veterans over the years including Denzel Washington in Training Day (2001), Christian Bale in Harsh Times (2006), and Kurt Russell in Dark Blue (2003). "The guy is just a professional, 100 percent through and through." Ayer continued. "Amazing actor, the guy's a machine."
Fury hits theaters on Nov. 14. Watch the trailer now!
