‘Fury’ Starring Brad Pitt Might Just Be The Best Damn War Film Since ‘Saving Private Ryan’ [VIDEO]

Sony Pictures

The first trailer for David Ayer’s new WWII film ‘Fury’ was released on Monday and if it’s anything like the trailer, the classic epic war film is back with a vengeance.

Brad Pitt stars as a leathered Sherman tank commander who leads his 5 man team into the obligatory no-win mission. The only wrinkle is that they’ve got a too-new green recruit that might just be the end of them.

Ayers’ other works, ‘Training Day‘ as writer and ‘End of Watch‘ as writer/director, are gritty for sure, and he successfully melds that grit with the look and feel of classic war films like Guns of Navarone, The Eagle Has Landed and A Bridge Too Far. At the same time, he preserves the personal story much like Saving Private Ryan, Enemy at the Gates and Letters From Iwo Jima. I’ve been a fan of Ayer’s work since his first screenplay; U571.

Fury may just be one of those rare movies that has massive broad appeal as an historical period piece and outright hands-down Oscar potential.

Fury debuts in theatres November 14th, 2014
