David Ayer's 'Fury' might have won the box office last weekend, but even with a strong opening, the World War II-set film will likely not appeal to one very important demographic: families. Never fear, families who love war movies (and also taking their children to the theater to see said war movies), Jimmy Kimmel has the perfect solution for you! It's a sequel. To 'Fury,' a movie about war. Starring Furbies! These things really just write themselves.
"He was just wasted."
Shia LaBeouf's apology/explanation tour has rolled out during the past few weeks, but while the 'Fury' star has finally spoken out about his more, uh, wild times over the past year or so, there are other people involved who haven't been quite as chatty. Last night, 'Cabaret' star Alan Cumming finally righted that on 'Conan.'
Brad Pitt's new World War II drama 'Fury' opened at number at the box office and has officially defined what this October has been about: long, R-rated movies featuring huge movie stars bucking the usual trends and out-grossing their family friendly competition. Between this and 'Gone Girl,' it looks like grown adults are heading to their multiplex more than ever these days.
Logan Lerman discusses filming ‘Fury,’ a challenge for obvious reasons when you’re working day in and day out with a giant deadly weapon – ‘Fury’ follows the lives of a World War II tank crew; Lerman plays the “new kid,” Norman – but won’t discuss the hazing he endured because he doesn’t want anyone to look bad. (OK, that’s pretty good media training.) Lerman also discusses his first two roles, ‘The Patriot’ and ‘What Women Want,’ and how Mel Gibson, of all people, really jumpstarted his career.
Ah, the magic of dance! Expressions made through movements of the body! Words don't matter! Wait-- is that Brad Pitt?
Instead of lining up the Hollywood superstar for a standard sit-down chat, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon had another plan for 'Fury' star Pitt on last night's show: a "Breakdance Conversation." Who needs words when you have cardboard, an old warehouse, and -- let's be real here -- super talented stunt doubles? This just might be the best Brad Pitt interview ever, if only because when Pitt really is dancing, he displays a natural grace that's a lot more interesting than a series of on-set stories about that time Shia LaBeouf pulled out his own front tooth in the name of art.
David Ayer knows that, with ‘Fury,’ he’s made a polarizing movie. It’s fascinating when not a director not only reads the reviews, but is openly talking about those reviews before a movie has even opened. Ayer is exaggerating when he says “the knives are out,” (‘Fury’ currently sits at 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and has its fair share of support to counter those that don’t – but Ayer is right when he calls it polarizing in the fact that the people who like it, really like it, and the same can be said for its detractors. ‘Fury’ sure does cause a reaction.
For the better part of 2014, Shia LaBeouf's antics were the talk of the gossip world. Can we even call them just "antics"? There was an arrest and an art installation, after all. Things were just weird, okay? The actor seems to have recovered from whatever was addling him, and he recently hit the talk show circuit in support of his upcoming World War II film, 'Fury,' a tour that inevitably results in his having to talk about, well, everything.
Shia LaBeouf has been known to utilize some ... how should we put it? ... unconventional acting methods. While he dropped acid for 'Charlie Countryman' and sent director Lars von Trier his own sex tapes for 'Nymphomaniac,' he was all about embracing the pain for his role in David Ayer's 'Fury.'
If you liked Brad Pitt in 'Inglourious Basterds' (who didn't), then you're probably pumped to see him fighting Nazis again -- this time in 'Fury,' the latest film from David Ayer. This new featurette takes us behind the scenes to introduce us to the brotherhood of men under Pitt's command in the upcoming action-drama, and help get us better acquainted before things get downright explosive.
With all the action going on at TIFF, including praise for 'Foxcatcher' and 'The Equalizer,' let us not forget entirely about 'Fury.' While Brad Pitt's WWII drama isn't making the rounds at the international film festival, a new international 'Fury' trailer has rolled out to keep the film on our radars.
