Netflix has released a new trailer for their upcoming original movie War Machine, which is directed by David MichÃ´d (Animal Kingdom, The Rover) and stars Brad Pitt. The streaming service acquired the film back in 2015.
The movie is based on the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, and tells the story of the rise and fall of a four-star general (played by Pitt).

Less than one year from now, Marvel Studios in unleashing Captain America: Civil War, a multi-superhero epic event of a motion picture that could be even bigger than Avengers: Age of Ultron (but will likely be dwarfed by the two-part Avengers: Infinity War). Principal photography commenced not long ago, and thanks to JoBlo some possible details regarding the plot of Civil War and how the galaxy of Marvel heroes involved will be outfitted for action have leaked.
Yes, you read that correctly. No, it’s not the War Machine that you are probably thinking of. This is Brad Pitt‘s War Machine, a satrical comedy from David MichÃ´d (Animal Kingdom). Based on the nonfiction bestseller The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, by late journalist Michael Hastings, Pitt will play a four-star military general who is modeled after Stanley McChrystal.
Disney and Marvel Studios premiered a 30-second TV spot for their next huge superhero epic Iron Man 3 during tonight’s Super Bowl. Now an extended version has made its way onto the Internet.

After franchise star Robert Downey Jr. engages us in the greatest staring contest in the recorded history of mankind (he wins), we are treated to a solid minute of footage from the movie. It all comes in lighting quick glimpses, but eagle-eyed viewers will catch Ben Kingsley as the main heavy the Mandarin, Guy Pearce as Dr. Aldrich Killian, Don Cheadle suited up as a more patriotic War Machine, and a smashing finale where ol’ Shellhead has to make a mid-air rescue of thirteen people who have just been sucked out of an exploding aircraft when he can only carry four at a time. As Tony Stark would say, “Oh boy.”
