The first teaser for Netflix's "War Machine" starring Brad Pitt dropped Tuesday.
Pitt's satirical war film co-stars Tilda Swinton, Sir Ben Kingsley and Anthony Michael Hall.
The official description of the film reads:
"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."
Since breaking into original films, Netflix has been trying to make a mark in cinema with such fare as the critically acclaimed, "Beasts of No Nation."
