Following his Nazi-killing stint as the foul-mouthed lead in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, Brad Pitt is set to return to the front lines of World War II once again for David Ayer’s Fury. And, to garner excitement ahead of the film’s release on October 17th, Sony Pictures has today unveiled the second international trailer, which contains a bunch of new footage.
Joining Pitt in the titular Sherman war machine are Jon Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf and End of Watch star Michael Peña, who are forced to go behind enemies lines in 1945 during the latter stages of the global conflict. The film will largely be told through the eyes of Logan Lerman’s rookie soldier, Ellison, who is thrust into the deep end when he is recruited by Pitt’s Wardaddy for the harrowing mission.
Written and directed by Ayer, the tank thriller is already turning heads for its ensemble cast and visceral set pieces. In fact, as the above footage attests, Fury depicts the brutality and burden of war with a very particular visual style. That’s largely because of Russian cinematographer Roman Vasyanov — who also worked alongside Ayer for End of Watch — with the pair aiming to mould the “ultimate tank film.”
Fury will conclude the upcoming London Film Festival and is expected to steamroll into theatres on October 17th, 2014 in the States. In the meantime, be sure to check out the trailer above and to leave your early thoughts on Ayer’s latest action flick in the comments.
