Brad Pitt‘s new film couldn’t be timelier!
The new trailer for Netflix‘s War Machine shows the sillier side of the absurdist war comedy, specifically Pitt’s portrayal of clinically clueless U.S. General Glen McMahon.
Pitt plays a top U.S. commander overseeing NATO forces in Afghanistan who is also trying to better the lives of the local people.
His intentions may be noble, but the general’s out-of-touch commentary on Afghan “motherfuckers” — while sitting next to an Afghan ambassador at a black-tie dinner — is just one of the cringeworthy moments in the trailer!
Seeing as our own Commander-in-Chief is about just as clueless when it comes to war relations with the middle east, this satire feels a little too real right now — but still looks hilarious!
Ch-ch-check out the latest trailer (above) and catch War Machine on Netflix May 26.
