FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - Fort Benning hosted a special screening of the new film "Fury" on Thursday, and there were some familiar and very famous faces at the event.
Columbia Pictures provided the screening of the World War II film at the Marshall Auditorium.
Actor Brad Pitt is in the new film, and we caught a glimpse of him at the special screening. His co-star Shia LaBeouf was at the screening as well.
Staff Sergeant Shawn Harris says he thinks the film was a great idea.
"It's a big deal to us as a tanker because there's not a lot of movies out there," he said. "This is the first one that's popped up in a long time. You see a lot of movies that focus on the infantry and the things that they do, but you never get to see what the armor guys do, so we're kind of like the unsung heroes of the battle in my opinion."
There was also an intimate meet-and-greet with the director and some cast members.
