Teaser Trailer: Brad Pitt In “War Machine”

Netflix has set a May 26th premiere date and unleashed the first trailer for “Animal Kingdom” and “The Rover” director David Michod’s big budget realistic drama meets absurdist and savage dark comedy feature “War Machine”.

Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, 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 star in the film which follows a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall.

Pitt plays the man, a successful and 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.

Based on the novel “The Operators” by Michael Hastings, Pitt, Ian Bryce, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are set to produce.
