David Ayer’s World War II drama, Fury, is yet another anticipated flick for this fall’s cinematic calendar. Set amidst the Allied Forces’ final push into enemy territory, the action centres around U.S. Army Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt). Together with his crew they make their way deeper behind enemy lines in the final stages of the war in a Sherman tank dubbed “Fury.” The story angle follows the perspective of Norman “Cobb” Ellison (Logan Lerman), a naive rookie.
This latest clip, considering it’s out of context from the movie, is a moving, emotionally-charged scene. Wardaddy forces Ellison’s hand, as he teaches the young soldier the ways of survival. Forcing the lad to kill an enemy on his knees, the stakes are raised when the brutality of war is seen up close. Pitt and Lerman both ground the moment via their opposing approaches to conflict; Pitt’s a nonchalant sergeant who has seen his fair share of horror and Lerman struggles to cope with the reality of what it means to fight. I for one am very, very excited to see the movie when it’s released.
Fury rolls into theatres on October 17th. Check out the clip above and let us know if you think Wardaddy is playing too rough.
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.
