In the tradition of war film classics Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, Writer/Director David Ayers' (Training Day, The Fast and the Furious) returns with Fury, a gripping action drama set at the end of World War II. Lead by Academy Award® winner Brad Pitt (Best Picture, 12 Years a Slave), who stars as battle-hardened Army Sergeant Don 'Wardaddy" Collier, Fury is an epic tale of comradery, heroism and bravery, which critics have called 'impressive and compelling" (The Today Show) and 'awe-inspiringly authentic" (ABC Radio). With an outstanding ensemble cast including Shia LaBeouf (Transformers franchise, Lawless), Logan Lerman (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Noah), Michael Peña (American Hustle, Million Dollar Baby), Jon Bernthal (The Wolf of Wall Street, Grudge Match) and Australia's Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, A Few Best Men), Fury depicts the overwhelming conditions and courageous actions of men in coldhearted battle.

It's April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, Sergeant Wardaddy commands the eponymous Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines in one of the most devastating wars in history. When the tank's gunner is killed in battle, the recently enlisted Army clerk, Norman Ellison (Lerman), joins the platoon as his replacement who, it transpires, has never even seen the inside of a tank before let alone experienced the ravages of war. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

Praised by The Age for its 'shuddering physicality" and hailed as a 'visceral screen experience" by the Herald Sun, Fury exposes the harsh realities of war and what it can do to the souls of ordinary men. With an uncanny ability to recreate the horror and brutality of conflict with an unflinching intensity, Fury stresses that in the depths of war, each man is only as strong as the man beside him.
