Brad Pitt is no stranger to the military general role by this point in his career, but then General Glen McMahon is not your ordinary military general. A second trailer has emerged for upcoming Netflix satire War Machine — and it’s even wilder than the first.
The latest clip takes another derisive look at the American war effort in Afghanistan, with McMahon quickly discovering the absurdity of what’s going down. “We cannot help them and kill them at the same time,” laments the cocksure general. “It just ain’t humanly possible!” Ben Kingsley, meanwhile, can be seen in his role as the work-shy Afghan president Hamid Karzai (who he’s a dead ringer for in real life, too).
The embellished film is based on the non-fiction book The Operators by Michael Hastings. Directed by David Michod, the likes of Emory Cohen, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter, Lakeith Stanfield, Meg Tilly and Tilda Swinton all make appearances alongside Pitt. Look out for it arriving on the streaming service May 26.
