“It sort of exploded out,” filmmaker David Ayer said about his latest film. “I wrote it for me.” Ayer’s kept largely inside the domain of police films thus far ("S.W.A.T.," "Street Kings," "End Of Watch"), but for his next trick, he’s taking on a WWII drama starring Brad Pitt. And if you think "so what? Pitt’s already done a WWII movie with Quentin Tarantino" (“Inglourious Basterds”), note that Ayer’s “Fury” sounds vastly different.

With the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival solidifying their lineups this week and the Venice Film Festival kicking off later this month, you might think that there are no more surprises left to come in the fall festival season. You would be wrong.

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 of troops in a tank. Will it be as self-contained as say 2009’s claustrophobic tank drama, “Lebanon” which won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival that year? Well, Sony has unleashed the first trailer and it certainly looks different, which certainly isn’t a bad thing.

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.

Fury, Brad Pitt
If you want to be really reductive about it, most of David Ayer's career has focused on telling stories about good guys and bad guys, usually centered around the world of police officers. He's long been interested in exploring the men behind the badge, their moral and ethical conflicts and the dangerous ways they put their lives on the line each day. But for this next effort, he's expanding that vision to the biggest battleground of all, World War II, and the first footage from "Fury" is here to show you some good guys caught in a very bad situation.

The prolific filmmaker David Ayer has two films coming out in 2014 and he’s already hoping the second one does better. Released just a few weeks ago, his action thriller “Sabotage” tanked at the box office and maybe have pegged the fact that audiences don’t really care about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s action star comeback. After five weeks in theaters, “Sabotage” has grossed a pitiful $10 million domestically.

While Steven Price might have seemed to come out of nowhere this fall with his teeth-rattling, nerve-fraying score for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity", it's actually the culmination of years in the industry. He spent a long time as a music editor, working on productions like Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins," Peter Jackson's "The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers" and "The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King" before he got first chance to step up into the big leagues by composing the score for 2011's "Attack The Block." And while this year Price also scored Edgar Wright's "The World's End" (he had previously done additional music on "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World") he will forever be remembered for his stunning work on "Gravity." And it has clearly gotten him noticed in the right places.

With his turn as a Marvel supervillain in “X-Men: Days of Futures Past” in the can, “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage has found a new project. The actor is set to star in an R-rated comedy about a man who tells people he’s a real leprechaun. In the vein of “Bad Santa,” the untitled comedy will be penned by Andrew Dodge, who wrote Jason Bateman’s less than stellar directorial debut “Bad Words.” Based on the premise, the Dinklage comedy looks to be a better bet.

Even if we wouldn't say he's quite cracked it yet, we've got a lot of respect for the way that Zac Efron is trying to establish himself as a proper grown-up adult actor. After all, the "High School Musical" series would be an albatross for many, but Efron's quietly been banging out a diverse mix of parts, and while things like "The Paperboy" and "At Any Price" haven't quite paid off yet, he's heading in the right direction. The actor's got several promising projects in the can already, including rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?," JFK ensemble drama "Parkland" and Seth Rogen/Nick Stoller comedy "Townies," and now, hot on the back of signing on to Eran Creevy's "Autobahn," the actor's just lined up thriller "Narc." Sounding a bit like a laugh-free "21 Jump Street," the project's being described as a based-in-fact, college-set version of "Donnie Brasco," and will see the actor play a fratboy who's busted for cocaine possession, and who agrees to become an informant to avoid jail time. The film's set up at Fox
