In 2009, Brad Pitt was tasked with killin' Nazis in Quentin Tarantino's Best Picture-nominated Inglourious Basterds. Just five years later, Pitt has been lured back to the battlefield for Fury, an altogether more grounded take on the Allies' efforts in Germany, which is set at the tail end of World War II in 1945.
"If you think it can't get worse, it can, and it will," says Pitt in the new trailer. "The dying's not done. The killing's not done. I promised my crew a long time ago I'd keep them alive." Pitt's crew is made up of an impressive ensemble cast that includes Shia LaBeouf, Jason Isaacs, Jon Bernthal, Michael Pena, and Logan Lerman, who serves as the green new recruit at the heart of the film.
