Looks pretty good. Maybe best movie about a tank crew since Kelly's Heroes? Looks a bit Hollywood, some scenes remind of U-571. WW2 microdetail buffs probably cant wait to tear this one down! Overall though I won't be missing it.

Little or Nothing beats Kelly's Heroes!
I swear this happens to me in some CC battles

Back to that movie though that you mention, Bradd Pitt and Shia Labouf? OH great somehow I get the feeling these guys care more about their hair then getting their hands dirty.. I'm sure I will probably watch this in the hopes of maybe seeing some old equipment and tactics in action.

Agreed. Movie itself looks good and the trailer very nice, but sure wish they found anyone except that stiff Pitt to star in it. It knocks down my hope level now.

Just found out the director for Fury wrote the screenplay for U571.... no wonder it reminded me of it.

Not another movie about american army in WWII... no hard feelings, but someone should do similar film about fightings on the eastern front. Eastern front is  much more interesting than the western, why it is almost abandoned in games and movies? Well, at least there is no Normandy xD

I would guess the burden is on the germans and russians to make such movies, the russians have already produced two movies, Brest Fortress and one about Stalingrad, the germans have done the series our mothers, our fathers. I have seen none of them so I can't comment but would like to see them.

This movie Fury looks entertaining. I like the visual style.

I have seen them all, not worth any minute of watching, especially our mothers, our fathers- propaganda mostly.

I recomend Russian film "Idi i smotri" (1985) or German "Stalingrad" (1993). Sorry about small offtop.

I have seen them all too and would recommend Our Mothers, Our Fathers and Brest Fortress, this last one is among the best WWII movies I have seen. Stalingrad looks spectacular but the story just didn't caught me.

It says that Fury will take place in April of 1945, and says setting is at the end of the war probably inside Germany. I wonder if the tank they use is the Jumbo 76 Sherman. I would imagine it was extremely hard for the shermans to keep veteran crews, unlike the German tanks when they were hit they had so much protection they could just command another tank some odd days after if one of theirs is hit and had many tank aces. Shermans were like tin as you know and if that gets hit a new greenhorn guy is added constantly sometimes even full crews.

Hey the Fury guys just may be rare vets..

Also noticed the patch on Brad Pitts arm is 2nd Armored. On his other arm is the rank, can't tell which it is.

Too much Hollywood.  Tiger at point blank range? As if they would be that close on open field?  But yeah I'll see it.  The Krauts had no chance in April '45.  300 troops advancing?  Ridiculous...the only thing they were doing was trying to stay alive not go on suicide attack mission with zero air support and hopelessly outnumbered.

Sure They did these battles all happened from Feb-May of 1945 according to wikipedia. Probably other smaller ones not even mentioned.

Watching the trailer I couldn't pin point the area or battle. If this did take place in a named operation, many fights were not named..



   Operation Veritable
   Operation Grenade
   Operation Lumberjack
   Operation Plunder
   Operation Varsity
   Operation Undertone
   Operation Amherst
   Battle of Kassel
   Battle of Heilbronn
   Ruhr Pocket
   Battle of Groningen

Battle of Kassel was an interesting battle with 7 Tiger II involved.

On March 30, 1945, seven German Tiger II tanks rolled south, heading for Fritzlar. 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northeast of Fritzlar, the Tigers fought a meeting engagement with an armored spearhead of the U.S. Third Army, resulting in damage or destruction to six U.S. tank destroyers. The German tankers, however, were forced to retreat when their unit was subjected to heavy artillery fire.

I stand corrected.  Surprised the Krauts managed to pull-off a light recon attack that late in the war.  Wonder whatever happened to the 6 Tiger II's that managed to retreat undamaged.
