This fall, you can watch Brad Pitt battle Nazi forces and their allies with a certain actor who declared himself "not famous anymore," a rising Hollywood heartthrob who's the son of a legacy and a Walking Dead alum.

In Fury, Pitt again plays a U.S. military commander during World War II, a similar role to the one he played in Inglorious Basterds. However, this time, don't expect any "Arrivederci" quips; This is war and he's the "Wardaddy"—an appropriate name for a strong leader of a young, fatigued U.S. Army tank crew batting the odds in dangerous enemy territory in Europe during the final stages of World War II in 1945.

The movie is chock full of action--a newly-released featurette, posted by IGN, shows at least eight explosions, fires and fighter planes buzzing. But Fury also delves into something much deeper and every character's personal story is revealed.

"They're exhausted, they're tired, they're grief-stricken, they're combat-fatigued," director and screenwriter David Ayer says in the video. "It's really about a family under incredible stress."

Shia LaBeouf, Fury


One of the tank unit members is played by Shia LaBeouf, who sports a mustache and made headlines early this year over a plagiarism scandal (explained as "meta-Modernist performance art") and subsequent odd public appearances, during which he wore a bag over his head and performed an "#IAMSORRY" art stunt.

His and Pitt's characters' comrades are played by Scott Eastwood—the hottie son of Clint Eastwood, Jon Bernthal, who played Shane in "The Walking Dead," Logan Lerman of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and Michael Peña, recently seen in "Cesar Chavez."

"Fury" hits theaters on November 14.
