Thrilling, visually stunning and electrifying performances across the board … Just three ways to describe David Ayer’s new war film, Fury.
The film, starring Brad Pitt, Michael Pena, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal takes place in April of 1945 during WWII, when a five man crew sets out for a deadly mission behind enemy lines.
“The movie is about these five guys who live in a tank,” Ayer told HipHollywood during our chat in Miami. “The tank is a character on to itself, but it’s their office, their living room, their bathroom,”
And considering this a film that perfectly executes brotherhood and camaraderie, what better way to get to know each other than to see someones most intimate and personal moments. “The main thing was dong pee pee in a bottle,” Pena told HipHollywood. “Seriously, we are filming and base camp is like ten minutes away. So literally, you’re talking to somebody then you only see this … ,” Michae said while showing the face of relief.
The men also bonded over an intense boot camp which was ran by Navy Seals. “It was definitely tough,” David said. “We had sleep deprivation. We had to wake up at 5’oclock in the morning, go to sleep at 10’oclock at night, then we had to be on watch. Everybody had a two hour shift and it was freezing. But we all stuck together.”
He added, “It was priceless to be honest.”
