International trailer for Fury has a few kinks

I've been all for David Ayer's Fury since its inception. Ayer's track record is great, it's got a great cast (highlighted by Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf), and I like tanks on tanks on tanks. But with this newest international trailer, I'm n...

First official trailer for Fury, starring Brad Pitt

David Ayer is one of my favorite writer/directors. From Training Day, The Fast and Furious, to End of Watch, he's always impressed me with his smaller dialogue moments around hefty action scenes. Looks like we'll be getting that in spades ...

New images of David Ayer's Fury look pretty cool

David Ayer's Schwarzenegger starring Sabotage may have been a well intentioned misfire, but I still have faith in his upcoming WWII tank project, Fury. It's filled to the brim with talented folks (Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena)...

This is how World War Z should have ended

As we noted in our review, the ending of World War Z was heavily changed after the original ending failed with test groups miserably, costing the production millions of dollars. We'd all heard it was pretty dour and that's why it didn'...

New World War Z poster isn't even trying anymore

World War Z with Brad Pitt is pretty much DOA. We know, for instance, that the bloated, unfaithful, neutered (it's a bloodless PG-13) adaptation of the Max Brooks book will need to make $400 million just to break even, and that large chunks...

Trailer: World War Z
