Most directors try to prevent actors from fighting. But while shooting the fictional WWII tank movie Fury, David Ayer had his five stars—Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña—start each day by attempting to beat the crap out of one another. ''We put them through martial-arts training and physical combat classes,'' says Ayer (End of Watch). ''It's a great icebreaker for actors. There's something very honest about being punched in the face.'' Despite all the famous—and hopefully undamaged—faces in the cast, producer John Lesher says the real star is Fury itself, a 30-ton gun-on-tracks ''played'' by an antique Sherman tank. ''It has such personality,'' he says. ''It's just this beast.''
