Ahead of its May release, Netflix has unleashed the first official trailer for new original film, War Machine. The picture stars Brad Pitt as hot-shot General Glenn McMahon, a man caught up in a modern war machine that keeps on churning, seemingly to no end.

Courtesy of writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), War Machine recreates this U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality and part savage parody. The setting is Afghanistan, where McMahon finds himself ultimately taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose.

War Machine is inspired by the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, starring Emory Cohen, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter, Lakeith Stanfield, Meg Tilly, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley, all alongside Pitt.

Look for the film to arrive on Netflix on May 26.
