Watch Brad Pitt as General Glenn McMahon in Teaser for Netflix Film 'War Machine'

David Michod's $60 million real-life drama co-stars Anthony Michael Hall, Tilda Swinton and Topher Grace.

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming $60 million original movie War Machine, starring Brad Pitt as General Glenn McMahon, the “rock star” general and NATO commander brought down by a magazine exposé.

Billed as an absurdist war story for our times, War Machine looks at General McMahon's roller-coaster ride in a mix of reality and parody. The film is inspired by the best-seller The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings.

War Machine features an all-star cast including Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Will Poulter and Meg Tilly. Netflix will bow the film worldwide May 26.
