Netflix Release New WAR MACHINE Trailer

A new trailer for the Brad Pitt starring Netflix original.

Director David Michod's War Machine, the true life story of US General Glenn McMahon (Brad Pitt) debuts on Netflix May 26th, and the streaming giants have dropped a brand new trailer.

The official synopsis reads:

In a film 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 anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story 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 his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed.
