First trailer for the upcoming satirical comedy, written and directed by David Michôd (‘The Rover,’ ‘Animal Kingdom’).

An absurdist war story for our times, WAR MACHINE recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the spectre of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of 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 a successful, charismatic four-star general 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 only on Netflix on May 26, 2017.
