Brad Pitt is 'War Machine' In First Teaser From Netflix


Not to be confused with Iron Man’s sidekick. The big week of teaser drops for Netflix continues, as the streaming network debuted the first trailer for David Michôd’s War Machine – another high profile film production with an all star cast including Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley! See the teaser below:

A pitch-black war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an absurdist look at a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on one of the most polarizing war figures of a generation: successful, charismatic four-star General Stanley McChrystal, who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.

War Machine is released globally on Netflix’s site May 26.
