Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf are dogs of war in tense first trailer for ‘Fury’

Well, when the teaser poster for “Fury” debuted online yesterday, we knew a trailer couldn't be far behind — so here it is. And from this two-minute glimpse, it looks to be very much the vision of war we were expecting from writer-director David Ayer: not exactly innovative, but as stern, purposeful and high-octane as the contemporary cop dramas on which he built his reputation. Brad Pitt appears to be on imposingly brutish form, but this looks like a relatively generous ensemble piece.

I'm guessing what we're hearing on the soundtrack isn't the score by recent “Gravity” Oscar winner Steven Price, but the trailer also promises some top-notch craft work. If nothing else — and if it performs well in its baity November slot, there could be plenty else — I expect some awards recognition for that crunchy sound design. All in all, a pretty enticing taster; check it out and tell us what you think.
