First Fury Image: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal And Logan Lerman Make Tank Commanding Look Easy

Such is the stylisation in this first image from Fury it looks less like a tense World War II drama about tank battles than a way to sell khaki clothing to hipsters.

Fury is being directed by David Ayer, a man who has made more than his fair share of policiers. I’m glad he’s had a change of scenery at least.

Here’s the film’s official blurb:

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 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.

Wardaddy is Brad Pitt’s character. Fury is the name of the tank.

Also lounging about up there is Ayer’s End of Watch collaborator Michael Pena, The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman. Not a bad lineup at all, really. I do like that Lerman kid – I hope he gets some good material here.

Fury won’t be released until next November. We have Ayer’s own Twitter feed to thank for this early image.
