Fury is a 2014 American war film written and directed by David Ayer. The film stars Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal. The film portrays tank crews during the final days of World War II in Europe. Ayer was influenced by the service of veterans in his family and by reading books, such as Belton Y. Cooper’s Death Traps, about American armored warfare in World War II. Ayer aimed for a greater degree of realism in the film than in other World War II dramas.
Rehearsal began in early September 2013 in Hertfordshire, England followed by principal photography on September 30, 2013, in Oxfordshire. Filming continued for a month and a half at different locations, which included the city of Oxford, and concluded on November 13. Fury was released on October 17, 2014. The film received positive reviews from critics and proved to be very successful at the box office grossing over $208 million.
