It’s a week full of huge trailers for Netflix. Earlier this week, the streaming giant released the first trailer for Will Smith’s ‘Bright,‘ and today they have released the first teaser trailer for Brad Pitt’s ‘War Machine‘.
That’s right. Netflix will be releasing films with Brad Pitt and Will Smith this year. If you didn’t think their original content push was legit before, hopefully you do now.
This “pitch-black” satire film stars Pitt as real-life U.S. general Stanley McChrystal. It’s an adaptation of the 2012 non-fiction book The Operators by Michael Hastings.
“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.”
