    Watch: First Trailer & Poster For Brad Pitt WWII Drama' Fury' Co-Starring Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman & More

    WWII and Brad Pitt. It’s been done before, notably in Quentin Tarantino’s reimagined WWII drama, “Inglourious Basterds,” but Pitt didn’t really see a lot of combat. Maybe action was the impetus of the actor starring in “Fury” a WWII movie directed by David Ayer that’s a Band-Of-Brothers-esque drama ...

    Brad Pitt's 'Fury' To Undergo Reshoots Next Month; Plus New Poster

    Described as a "character study with action sequences" in the sizzle reel that dropped earlier this month, David Ayer's WWII tank pic "Fury" seems to be rolling toward awards season contention. But it would appear that the film needs a few more tweaks before it can hit theatres.

    The prolific filmmaker David Ayer has two films coming out in 2014 and he’s already hoping the second one does better.

    Review: David Ayer's 'Sabotage' Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos & More

    With nary an Ahnold quip, "Sabotage," David Ayer's fetishistically violent action thriller, often feels like a misguided detour, a waste of goodwill amassed by the superior "End of Watch." Doing away with the concept that guided the 2012 cop drama but retaining and supercharging it's once-relatable ...

    Watch: Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Ready For 'Sabotage' In New 3-Minute Red Band Trailer

    For the most part, Arnold Schwarzenegger's "comeback" vehicles have mostly traded on ironically spoofing his persona. From "The Expendables" films to "The Last Stand" to "Escape Plan," all of them have traded on some notion of self-awareness to Arnie's career and reputation. But what makes the forth...

    David Ayer Taps Into His 'Fury' To Direct WWII Pic

    Until now, David Ayer has pretty much been known for one thing: cop flicks. "Training Day," "Dark Blue," "S.W.A.T.," "Harsh Times" and "End Of Watch" all bear his name as writer and/or director, but Ayer is taking a sharp left turn for his next effor...

    TIFF Review: Chest-Beating LAPD Cop Drama 'End Of Watch' Is Clichéd & Monotonous

    Like "Harsh Times" before it, police drama "End of Watch" conflates realism with sensationalism. In fact, writer/director David Ayer sustains an abrasive tone throughout "End of Watch" in a number of ways. Firstly, Ayer gives his buddy cop drama a cheap kind of imm...
