Brad Pitt Prepares For Battle In WAR MACHINE Teaser Trailer March 2, 2017 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.
