Fans who have been waiting for Fury starring Brad Pitt will get to see the World War II action-thriller a bit sooner, with Sony Pictures moving the release date from November 14 to October 17.

Fury will now go up against Universal's Dracula Untold, 20th Century Fox's The Book of Life, Open Road Films' Nightcrawler and Relativity Media's The Best of Me in wide release on October 17, along with limited release titles Birdman and Camp X-Ray. If it would have stayed put on November 14, the action-thriller would have faced Universal's Dumb and Dumber To and Relativity Media's Beyond the Lights in wide release, and Sony's Foxcatcher in limited release.

Brad Pitt stars in Fury as Wardaddy, the leader of a five-man Sherman Tank crew towards the end of World War II, who find themselves outgunned and trapped behind enemy lines as they try to strike a blow deep into the heart of Nazi Germany. Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Scott Eastwood, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs, Michael Peña, Xavier Samuel and Jim Parrack round out the supporting cast.

David Ayer is directing from his own screenplay, which is based on a true story. We'll have to wait and see if other studios shift their release slate after Sony's move.
