Sony’s ‘Fury,’ starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs and Scott Eastwood, easily trounced the competition this weekend at the domestic box-office. The film brought in a little under $24 million in the project’s debut weekend in theaters.
The film follows army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines during WWII. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
Taking second-place was 20th Century FOX’s ‘Gone Girl’ with $18 million across the nation. Third-place went to another film from 20th Century FOX, the animated story ‘The Book Of Life.’ That film brought in $17 million domestically also in its first weekend in theaters.
Fourth place went to the Disney film ‘Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ with a little over $12 million, that film has now earned just short of $37 million domestically overall. Rounding-out the top-five was ‘The Best Of Me,’ from Relativity Media with $10 million, a surprisingly low turnout for a Nicholas Sparks film in its first weekend.
