War Machine Trailer Released

Netflix Releases Trailer for Brad Pitt Starrer “War Machine”

“I din’t come here to manage this war and I sure as shit didn’t come here to close it out,” Brad Pitt’s super confident (and mindfully over the top) General Glen McMahon explains during the opening moments of the new trailer for Netflix’s somewhat absurd War Machine.  “I came here to win.”

Adapted from The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings, War Machine is part reality, part parody - dissecting the constantly moving line that separates the two.

Directed by David Michôn (Animal Kingdom), the film tells the story of an uppity general who simply put, can’t keep his mouth shut - even to a journalist who would ultimately bring him down.

Emory Cohen, RJ Tyler, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Anthony Hayes, Meg Tilly, Tulsa Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley costar.

The film will be released globally on Netflix on May 26, 2017.  Select theaters in New York City and Los Angeles offering the “theatrical” experience that same day.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
