Following a different glimpse of the story in the latest UK trailer for David Ayer's World War II drama Fury, now we get a featurette that dives into the vehicles of war at the center of this story about a five-man crew of soldiers facing seemingly insurmountable odds and forces from Germany. As the featurette notes, Germans had a Tiger tank at their disposal, which were far superior to the U.S. Sherman tanks. Production was able to get the only Tiger tank in existence from a museum and use it to shoot Fury. It's basically the villain tank in this scenario, a rarity towards the end of the war, and certainly a force to be reckoned with. Here's the tank featurette for David Ayer's Fury straight from Sony Pictures: Check out the latest trailer from the United Kingdom for David Ayer's Fury, coming this fall. Written »

"I had the best gunner in the entire 9th Army in that seat. And now I got you." The first trailer for Fury introduced us to the tank crew facing seemingly insurmountable odds of survival in David Ayer's World War II drama. Now a new trailer from across the pond has surfaced, and this one focuses a bit more on Logan Lerman. As the recent featurette explained, he's the newest recruit of the Fury tank crew following the death of their gunner. But he's a young kid, and hasn't seen all the horror that Brad Pitt, Michael Pena, Shia Labeouf and Jon Bernthal have seen, so he must be initiated, and it looks pretty intense. Watch! Here's the latest UK trailer for David Ayer's Fury direct from Sony Pictures UK: Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission. »

If the theatrical trailer for David Ayer's World War II drama Fury, which has flares of Saving Private Ryan, didn't convince you to see the film, then maybe the first featurette will do the trick. The film follows Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal as the crew of a tank called Fury on a mission where the odds are overwhelmingly not in their favor. This featurette dives into the position each member of the crew has inside the tank, giving us just a hint of what their character has to offer in the film. It also explains how Lerman comes to end up inside Fury for this mission. Watch below! Here's the first featurette for David Ayer's Fury, originally from Apple: Watch the theatrical trailer for David Ayer's Fury, starring Brad Pitt, right here.

The original followed a detective who slowly falls in love and becomes obsessed with a well-heeled advertising exec over the course of investigating her murder. Ellroy also penned the scripts for "Street Kings" and "Rampart". [Source: THR]

Celebrated crime author James Ellroy, whose books have been adapted into films such as L.A. Confidential and The Black Dahlia, has signed on to write the screenplay for a remake of the 1944 film noir thriller Laura.
Otto Preminger directed Laura, which centered on a detective who falls for the woman whose murder he is investigating. Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb and Vincent Price starred in the thriller, which was nominated for five Oscars, including Clifton Webb for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Otto Preminger for best director, with Joseph Lashelle winning the Oscar for Best Cinematography.
Stuart Till is serving as executive producer for Fox 2000, but the project doesn't have a director attached at this time.
It's beyond dispute — Otto Preminger's 1944 film noir "Laura" is a stone cold classic, so of course it's going to be remade. The original starred Gene Tierney, Dana Andwers, Clifton Webb and Vincent Price, and concerned a murder investigation that turns obsessive. So if there must be a new version, we're glad it's in good hands. THR reports that legendary writer James Ellroy will craft a screenplay for the redo for Fox 2000. The author has dipped his toes into screenwriting before ("Street Kings," "Rampart"), and likely knows first hand how adaptations can both be regrettable ("Black Dahlia") and great ("L.A. Confidential"). We presume Ellroy will examine Vera Caspary's novel, from which Preminger's film was derived, and we're interested to see what his way into the story will be. If you haven't yet seen "Laura" (or want to again), you can watch the whole below with an easy click of the mouse. »

“It sort of exploded out,” filmmaker David Ayer said about his latest film. “I wrote it for me.” Ayer’s kept largely inside the domain of police films thus far ("S.W.A.T.," "Street Kings," "End Of Watch"), but for his next trick, he’s taking on a WWII drama starring Brad Pitt. And if you think "so what? Pitt’s already done a WWII movie with Quentin Tarantino" (“Inglourious Basterds”), note that Ayer’s “Fury” sounds vastly different. What’s the film like? In a long feature in the New York Times recently, the movie was described as a “relentlessly authentic portrayal of the extremes endured, and inflicted, by Allied troops who entered Germany in the spring of 1945.” Intriguingly, the Times also say the movie “promises to be one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season.” Here’s the official synopsis: April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, »

"What's that? Oh yeah...we're just here. Hanging out. On our Tank."
Brad Pitt's upcoming film, Fury, now has itself a new banner. The movie is being directed by David Ayer, the man behind End of Watch, Street Kings, Sabotage, and who wrote Training Day. The film will tell a gritty, tense tale set during World War II about a group of soldiers navigating a tank behind enemy lines.
The new fragrance from Calvin Klein: Tank
"April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, 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 out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany."
The film will feature the considerable talents of not only Pitt, »

London - On a chilly October day, four Sherman tanks rumble through the mud of the English countryside. They are battle worn and weary, their crews resolute, but they carry scars of a long campaign. For a brief moment the visage makes you believe you've stepped back in time: to April 1945 and the last days of World War II. You haven't, of course; it's just an impressive set for the new period thriller "Fury." Written and directed by David Ayer ("End of Watch"), "Fury" follows members of one heroic tank crew as they embark on a dangerous mission into the heart of Nazi Germany. The tank is lead by Wardaddy (Brad Pitt), who has his loyal soldiers Boyd (Shia Labeouf), Trini (Michael Peña) and Grady (Jon Bernthal) at his back. He also has a young newbie, Norman (Logan Lerman), who will no doubt learn some major life lessons under Wardaddy's watch. »

David Ayer has begun to prove himself more and more as a director to be reckoned with. From his gritty crime films Harsh Times and Street Kings through his found footage End Of Watch and the action-packed Sabotage, Ayer has made a name for himself as the go to guy for a very specific type of film. His next movie, the Brad Pitt starrer Fury may also show that Ayer can segue into other genres as well. Maybe that is why he was connected to a remake of Arnold Schwarzenegger's cult classic »

Don’t know about you, but I’m very excited for this one. Hopefully after watching the trailer below you’ll be too. There’s just something cool about tanks I guess. Take the writer of The Fast and the Furious, Training Day and S.W.A.T., who also happens to be the director of Street Kings, End of Watch and […]
Over the course of his career, actor Brad Pitt has garnered acclaim for a wide filmography that has seen him take on roles in movies such as Se7en, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford, Burn After Reading, Inglourious Basterds, and The Tree of Life. Filmmaker David Ayer concurrently rose to prominence for his work writing 2001′s Training Day, soon taking on directorial duties as well in films such as Street Kings and End of Watch. Fans of both were thus excited to learn that an upcoming project would see the two of them working together. Titled Fury, Ayer once again takes on screenwriting and directing duties, and Pitt is joined onscreen by Logan Lerman, Shia Laboeuf, and Jon Bernthal. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

"Ideals are peaceful... History is violent." Yes - finally! Columbia has debuted the first full-length trailer for David Ayer's awesome WWII tank movie titled Fury, starring Brad Pitt as "Wardaddy", along with Shia Labeouf (hidden in this trailer), Logan Lerman, Scott Eastwood, Jon Bernthal, Xavier Samuel and Michael Peña. The story follows a tank platoon in Europe on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. The footage looks spectacular - an intense, gritty, badass but heartfelt WWII film set around/inside a Sherman tank. I love it, everything about it, and I cannot wait to see it. I'll let the footage speak for itself. Fire this up! Here's the first official trailer for David Ayer's Fury, in high def from Apple: Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission.

War Never Ends Quietly. Oh man I'm looking forward to this so much. A new poster has debuted for David Ayer's WWII tank movie Fury, starring Brad Pitt as well as Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Scott Eastwood, Jon Bernthal, Xavier Samuel and Michael Peña. However, it is only Brad Pitt who shows up on this poster, slouched over the turret of his tank. Hopefully this means we'll see a character poster for each of these guys, but aside from that, I really like this poster. It's simple, but has a gritty edge to it, and evokes the sadness and fatigue of war. Early footage for this looks awesome, one of my most anticipated fall films. In full below. Here's the new poster for David Ayer's Fury featuring just Brad Pitt, first found via The Film Stage: Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows »

The first footage from David Ayer's World War II tank drama Fury premiered yesterday at E3 and can be viewed directly below along with a batch of new pictures from the film, set for a November 14 release. Brad Pitt stars as a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy, commanding a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Scott Eastwood, Jon Bernthal and Jason Isaacs co-star. Ayer seems to be something of an up-and-down filmmaker, while I haven't yet seen Sabotage, reviews weren't too kind, but I thought End of Watch was great while Street Kings was no bueno. I have high hopes for this one, give »

How's that for some alliteration? For some reason, Wargaming.net is the first to debut footage from David Ayer's tank drama Fury after showing off a cool featuette at E3 this week. There's tons of great footage both from the film and behind the scenes, showing off the fatigued five-man crew of the titular tank as they carry on a mission behind enemy lines. Brad Pitt gets back in World War II mode, though this looks a little less exaggerated and stylized than Inglorious Basterds. But he's still got a great cast including Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal at his side. This looks pretty great. Watch! Here's the first footage from David Ayer's Fury in a featurette from IGN: Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission. As the Allies make their final push, »

See Channing Tatum go rogue this Saturday on Reelz
It's exciting to watch TV shows and movies where the police officers doggedly pursue every lead and put together a by-the-book, airtight case to bring the bad guys to justice. But, it's often far more thrilling to watch the exploits of cops who toss the book out the window and go rogue in pursuit of justice. Sometimes cops go rogue because they work in a corrupt department, but usually they're just guys who know that they can't get the job done by playing by the rules.
What we want to know is which movie has the best rogue cop. Turn on your police scanner, grab a donut and help us choose the movie cops who make going rogue look good. For more rogue-cop action, be sure to watch Son of No One starring Channing Tatum Saturday on Reelz at 8p Et/ 5p Pt. »

Following a stylish cast photo and some pictures straight from the set by way of director David Ayer, the first official photos from the World War II drama Fury have arrived. Brad Pitt, going by the name Wardaddy, leads an American tank crew in Nazi Germany, but he's probably not collecting Nazi scalps this time. However, he's surrounded by an impressive cast that includes Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal and Jason Isaacs. This has the potential to be one of the great movies that Ayer delivers as a director, especially with this talent in front of the camera. We're hoping for the best. Look! Here's two new photos from David Ayer's Fury, originally from People magazine: Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission. As the Allies make their final push, a »

Listen all of y'all, it's Sabotage. Here’s a brand new and exclusive TV spot for Sabotage, the forthcoming action thriller starring the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, plus a number of other actors who are not, let’s face it, nearly as stacked as Arnie. Directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), it also stars Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, and Joe Manganiello. »
A handsome movie in many ways, but it feels like an unpolished first draft, one that can’t quite decide how fantastical it wants to be. I’m “biast” (pro): like Keanu Reeves more than most
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
This umpteenth iteration of the Japanese legend of the 47 ronin, or masterless samurai warriors, has its fair share of problems, but not as many as you’ve heard, and not as many as the presence of poor Keanu Reeves — who has unfairly become a cinematic punchline — may have led you to believe. Stolid, stoic Reeves (The Day the Earth Stood Still, Street Kings) is well-cast as the half-Japanese, half-British Kai, whose status as an outcast in xenophobic 18th-century Japan means he has to keep his eyes down and his mouth shut, and the actor maintains a modest presence throughout, »
