On Wednesday night, the movie premiere of Fury, Brad Pitt‘s latest film, was held at the Newseum in Washington D.C. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is the first time Sony has held a world premier in the nation’s capital.
The movie, which takes place in Europe during the final month of World War II, is about a five-man crew that must try to accomplish a deadly mission in the heart of Nazi Germany. It stars Pitt, Shia LaBeouf (ew), Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Peña, Jason Isaacs, and Scott Eastwood.
Many famous war celebrities were scheduled to attend such as retired four-star general Colin Powell, former Army Chief of Staff George Casey, and three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovech… Wait, what?
Yes, Russian Caps Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Dmitry Orlov were there. I’m not exactly sure why, but who cares.
Kuzya also managed a selfie with Brad Pitt!
Okay, with Pitt in the background.
Unaware that a selfie was being taken.
But still! How cool is that? Evgeny Kuznetsov’s Bacon number is now 2 (took a selfie with Pitt, Pitt was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon).
Check out the preview of the film below. It looks awesome.
We’ll update this post with more photos and video as they’re published.
