Angelina Jolie To Co-Star With Brad Pitt And Direct 'By The Sea'
Has there been a major Hollywood couple where the wife actually directed her husband in a movie? The Hollywood directing ranks are overwhelmingly male, but there have been no shortage of power couples that could have tried it out. But more often than not, it's the man who wears the pants behind the camera.
9 Ways Fury Aims To Be The Muddiest, Most Realistic World War II Movie Ever Made
It’s a war movie unlike any other that’s been made about the second World War— and making that required a lot of attention to detail, as we learned by watching the crew at work last November.
The Fury Trailer Is Scary, Chaotic And Really Good
We’ve seen Brad Pitt kill Nazis before thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s badass, unusually spelled Inglourious Basterds. Now, we’re gonna get that chance again thanks to David Ayer’s Fury, though if the above trailer is any indication, this new film will be a whole lot different than QT’s stylistic, over the top masterpiece that could have won Best Picture.
Math Claims Only 3 Actors Are Capable Of Increasing Box Office Grosses
Once upon a time, Hollywood was filled with actors and actresses who could slap their names on a movie poster and almost guarantee success. That star power has lessened over the years. We can all agree on that. Exactly how much is still a matter of fierce debate, but if one hot and trendy new algorithm can be relied upon, the answer is almost none at all.
Brad Pitt Aims To Take Down Some Nazis In New Fury Photos
Anyone who's seen Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds knows that Brad Pitt contributes to a huge portion of that film's success. His casting was probably the most brilliant move on that film besides the casting of his co-star Christoph Waltz, and he's looking to tear down the Nazis yet again in his new film, Fury. And this time, he's not scalping his way through enemy territory, he's shelling them into submission!
How Brad Pitt Changed Hollywood Action Movies
Back in the 1980s, Hollywood action movies preferred their male leads to have gigantic arms. They wanted Hulk Hogan lookalikes with Popeye biceps who could conceivably one punch any human being into a coma. More recently, however, the standard of badass bodies has changed quite a bit.
Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Working Together On A Mystery Movie

Brad Pitt's Middle Eastern War Epic The Operators Lands A Director

Brad Pitt May Join New WWII Romantic Thriller From The Writer Of Eastern Promises

Brad Pitt May Reteam With Tom Cruise For Racing Drama Go Like Hell
After directing him in this year’s lackluster sci-fi adventure Oblivion, Joseph Kosinski is reteaming with Cruise for Fox’s racing drama Go Like Hell, which may soon find another megastar in its midst as Fox is currently trying to sway Brad Pitt to join the project. It would mark the first time Pitt and Cruise co-starred in a film since 1994’s Interview With the Vampire, and while a racetrack is the last place I want to see their on-screen reunion, I guess I won’t look a gift horse under the hood.
Brad Pitt And Shia LaBeouf Hanging Tough In Fury Set Pics
After seeing what writer-director David Ayer did with the cop drama genre in the scintillating End of Watch, we've been pumped to see his World War II drama Fury. Thankfully, his enthusiasm seems to match our own, as he's been sharing plenty of peeks behind-the-scenes on his Twitter account, including some group shots of his cast.

Is Brad Pitt going to become the next actor, after Tom Hanks, to become completely synonymous with World War II? He's already put in one memorable performance on the war-torn European front, as the scalp-wielding Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds, and he's currently making his way back in Fury, another Word War II drama currently shooting in London. We thought the crew joining Pitt was already set in place
Marc Forster Won't Be Back For The World War Z Sequel
So with Forster out, who should Pitt get to replace him? The director has an excellent working relationship with David Fincher. Or how about The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont, or someone from that show? Darabont also directed one of the most underrated horror films from recent years, the reboot of The Mist.
Brad Pitt Quotes Mickey Rourke To Michael Fassbender In Counselor Clip
The latest clip from Ridley Scott’s The Counselor is on its own pretty confusing. What crime are Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender discussing? What is Pitt advising when he suggests “don’t do it”? Why is he talking about Mickey Rourke?
Exclusive World War Z Blu-ray Clip Features Zombies In Tight Spaces
The home entertainment release of the fast-paced summer flick features some fun bonus features, but the star of the set is the movie itself, which amps up suspense through scenes like the one we are debuting today, that shows what happens when a zombie is introduced into a small space.
