"2017 is the year Netflix makes a big statement in the original film realm. While the streaming service has had solid previous entries like Beasts of No Nation, this year they're acting like an out-and-out movie studio with content ranging from blockbusters (David Ayer's Bright) to foreign films (Bong Joon-ho's Okja) to now socially conscious war satires. Today Netflix unveiled the first trailer for War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, and it looks downright delightful.

Directed by Animal Kingdom and The Rover helmer David Mich˘d, the film is based on the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan and stars Pitt as decorated U.S. general Stanley McChrystal whose ultra-confidence was cut down by a journalist's expose. This first trailer is merely a teaser so we don't get a ton of footage, but we certainly get the vibe of the film with Pitt doing something of an Aldo Raine-esque accent here in what's sure to be a memorable role…"

Thanks God and all the Saints, another socially conscious war satire.
And not a particularly good one, judging by the trailer.
