It's can be tough to get quite on set with these two Hollywood stars but Bovington's Tank Museum's new A-listers shone out at their new exhibition.

Their Sherman and Tiger tanks both take a leading role in Brad Pitt's new film 'Fury' that's hitting cinema screens.

The film follows the follows the story of an American Tank unit in World War Two as they make their final push against the Germans.

The exhibit features both the amour plated actors and gives members of the public a behind the scenes glimpse into how the tanks made it onto the big screen.

There's also several gaming stations open where visitors can get behind their own virtual tanks on World of Tanks to get a closer feel of what life would've been like for drivers at the time.

David Willey (pictured), Curator of The Tank Museum opened the exhibit and told Wessex FM "Being a part of making this film was a remarkable opportunity for the Museum and we want to share that experience with our visitors. This exhibition will give an insight in to how The Tank Museum was involved in the Fury film, the issues we faced when working to safely use some of our historic collection and what it was like for staff on set of a Hollywood movie."

The Film Fury is out in the UK on October 22nd.
