On Wednesday, Netflix revealed the teaser trailer for its upcoming satire on the war in Afghanistan starring Brad Pitt, “War Machine.”

Based on the best-selling book “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” the movie follows Pitt as a four-star general who has been tasked with commanding the US war in Afghanistan, but the complexity of the job becomes overwhelming.

Netflix reportedly nabbed the movie, on which Pitt is also a producer, for $US30 million. It also stars Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, and Lakeith Stanfield.

Check out the teaser below, which shows off Pitt’s classic dry humour. “War Machine” will be available on Netflix May 26.
