About Fury:

April, 1945.  As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, 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, 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. Written and directed by David Ayer, the film is produced by Bill Block, David Ayer, Ethan Smith, and John Lesher.  The executive producers are Brad Pitt, Sasha Shapiro, Anton Lessine, Alex Ott, and Ben Waisbren.  The film, a Columbia Pictures presentation in association with QED International and LStar Capital, is a Le Grisbi Productions / Crave Films production.  For more information about Fury, visit the official website at www.sonypictures.com/movies/fury/.
