We've seen Brad Pitt go to war before, but it's never been this funny.
Netflix released the first trailer for his new satire film, War Machine, Wednesday morning. Pitt stars as U.S. general Glenn McMahon, whose confidence is cut down by a journalist's exposé.
David Michôd directed the film, which Pitt produced with Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.
Inspired by the late Michael Hastings' best-selling book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan, War Machine was green-lit in June 2015, with principal photography slated to begin that August. "War Machine is a rip-roaring, behind-the-facade tale of modern war decision-makers, from the corridors of power to the distant regions of Americas ambitions," Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos told E! News at the time. "Brad and David are a perfect team to make this timely, compelling and entertaining film."
