With the recent news that 'Fury' has topped the box-office over the course of it's opening weekend, Brad Pitt - the film's star - talks about what went into the creation of this hit film. In an interview with the BBC, Pitt explains how the film was never intended to act as a glorification of war. "War is hell," he says, while discussing the film's dramatic impact. In his own words, the film "was about the accumulative psychic trauma that every soldier carries to some extent."

Brad Pitt stars as Sergeant Don "Wardaddy" Collier, alongside Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Jon Bernthal. 'Fury' follows the story of these five men who work together within the titular Sherman tank, throughout the final days of World War Two. According to 'Walking Dead' star, Jon Bernthal, "This movie is family drama. It's about a family travelling through hell in a metal box."

Pitt's wife, Angelina Jolie, was directing her own World War Two film, 'Unbroken', largely at the same time. 'Unbroken' follows the real-life story of Louis Zamperini, and focuses on his Olympic career and heroic stand throughout his time in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. Pitt talked about the similar career moves for them, saying that "I was studying the European theatre [of war]; she was studying the Pacific theatre. I was studying tanks; she was studying bombers." He also spoke on the work, saying that "It was a lovely experience; we don't normally work at the same time".

'Fury' opened on 17th October, and earned 23.5 million USD over the course of it's opening weekend. The film took some strong backlash last year, when filming with extras in Nazi uniforms happened on Remembrance Day. According to The Mirror, one extra stated "This was grotesquely disrespectful and offensive. I can't believe I wore an SS uniform on Remembrance Sunday." Both David Ayer and Sony Pictures offered their full apology.
