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.
