War Machine Trailer

Netflix has dropped another amusing new trailer for War Machine, the war black comedy from Australian director David Michod. We've already seen a few trailers for this before, but this new one gives us even more of Brad Pitt as the goofy general overseeing the Afghanistan war. Described as a "pitch-black war story for our times", this seems like a brutally honest look at America's modern wars. The full ensemble cast includes Tilda Swinton, Sir Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Will Poulter, Keith Stanfield, Emory Cohen, John Magaro, RJ Cyler, Scoot McNairy and Meg Tilly. I'm still very much looking forward to this, mostly because of David Michod, but also because Brad Pitt looks hilarious in this role. Plus it seems like a brutally honest takedown of the American wars in the Middle East. Check this out.

Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for David Michod's War Machine, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Michod's War Machine here, or the other full-length trailer.

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd recreates a U.S. General's (Brad Pitt) 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 exploration of 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 a successful, charismatic four-star general 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. War Machine is both written and directed by Australian filmmaker David Michôd, of Animal Kingdom and The Rover previously. The film is based on the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings. Netflix will release Michôd's War Machine streaming starting May 26th this summer. Interested in this?

    This has the vibe of a Coen brothers' "idiot" movie.

    Ok, that was cool. I don't expect a great film, but after this trailer, I might enjoy some laughs. And, it looks like non Americans are portrayed like humans here. Which can't hurt ...
    • LeoForPrez
      yeah...because normally non Americans are portrayed like lawn furniture
  • Lewis
    Brilliant - wasn't expecting that.
    Nice. Pitt is pretty great at comedy.
  • Bo
    I don't know. This kind of stuff is very hard to pull off. I like Pitt; always have. It just seems to me that he and the movie itself is being too obvious in the way he's playing it and the way it's playing itself out. They might as well carry a sign saying, 'hey, we're making a pitch-black satirical comedy' here. Are the audiences today so dumb they have to be spoon-fed this kind of stuff in a way to make sure they understand it? Hmmmmmmmm.....
    • Yep. It's like an SNL performance.
      • Bo
        Exactly. Well said, tarek. Perfect analogy. Excellent!
        • LeoForPrez
          you are the most easily impressed human I have ever met. I'd love to read your review of a chicken mcnugget. "Exquisite. Bravo, chef. Your execution was impeccable. Magnificent!"
          • Bo
            I see. Well, I wasn't impressed with this trailer and I'm certainly not impressed with you, Bob (as is the general consensus here regarding you) once again you make a complete ass of yourself with your incorrect and distorted perceptions. But hey, it's what we expect from you, Bobby.
          • LeoForPrez
            where as we expect moronic opinions from you that are expressed like you are 89 years old and sheltered as f*%!
          • Bo
            What 'we', Bobby boy. You got a mouse in your pocket? You mean you...lonely, confused, lost you. There's no one in your corner, Bob. You're the personification of what an internet troll is. I thank you for that, by the way. Now I really know what the definition of troll is and you are it in all it's raging glory. Congratulations! Now shoo, fly. I've wasted time with you and shall just delete you when you come around me again without reading your simplistic and childish rants and ravings. Grow up, bud. You're a very, very sick and toxic guy.
          • LeoForPrez
            bahahhaha.....more stupid nonsense from the biggest idiot on this site. Bo are you 90? You sound like a fossil from the 1800s. You do realize your ONE fan Tarek is a total moron himself? Don't confuse your pathetic one man audience with having any support around here. HAHAHAHAHA
