If there’s anything we already know about 2017, it’s that Netflix has definitely upped their A-game in content.
The teaser for David Michôd‘s new dark comedy war film War Machine, starring and produced by Brad Pitt, officially dropped over the weekend and features a star-studded cast including Tilda Swinton, Sir Ben Kingsley, Topher Grace and Will Poulter.
Watch the teaser here:
The synopsis from Netflix describes the film as:
An absurdist 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 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 will be released globally on Netflix on May 26, 2017.
