Brad Pitt stars in first trailer and poster for Fury

A stylish new trailer and poster has arrived online for Fury , starring Brad Pitt as the leader of an American tank unit during the last days of WW2.

The new poster is extremely atmospheric, with Pitt's character looking pensive against the backdrop of a slate-grey sky.

Pitt will play Staff Sergeant Wardaddy, with the film charting his unit's advance beyond enemy lines in an attempt to strike at the heart of the Nazi power-base.

With just five men and a single Sherman tank, the odds look stacked against the protagonists, leaving plenty of scope for some backs-against-the-wall badassery.

Directed by David Ayer and co-starring Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Jon Berthal, Fury will open in the UK on 24 October 2014.
