Watch the Trailer for 'War Machine,' Brad Pitt's New Netfix

Marvel fans may have sat up a bit in their seats when they heard there was a new trailer for a film called War Machine, but no it is not about the character currently portrayed by Don Cheadle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This War Machine is a film based on real events; a dark satirical look at the rise and fall of a four-star U.S. military general, as played by Brad Pitt.

The film will debut on Netflix on May 26, 2017, and it’s based on the nonfiction book by the late journalist Michael Hastings. From writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), it’s being described as a “pitch-black war story” centered on American’s war in Afghanistan.

According to its official description War Machine “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.”

The cast, like many Netflix movies these days, is quite stacked, including Tilda Swinton (also in the Netflix film Okja, which premiered a trailer yesterday), Sir Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Will Poulter, Lakeith Stanfield, Emory Cohen, John Magaro, RJ Cyler, Alan Ruck, Scoot McNairy and Meg Tilly.
