Netflix (via Vox) have released the brand new full trailer for War Machine – David Michôd’s satirical war thriller with a self-described ‘highly decorated cast’ including Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley. Watch below:
A pitch-black 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 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.
War Machine is released globally on Netflix’s site May 26.
