Netflix has unveiled a fresh trailer for its upcoming satirical war film War Machine, starring Brad Pitt.

The movie — an adaptation of the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan — is set to premiere via the streaming service on May 26, and takes a comical look at the absurdities of war and the politics which are often involved.

Directed by David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), the film sees Pitt playing the role of decorated US general Gen. Glenn McMahon (based on Gen. Stanley McChrystal) whose over-confidence about the task at hand leads to his demise via a journalist’s exposé.

Rounding out the cast with Pitt are a string of well-known actors including Tilda Swinton, Sir Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Will Poulter, Lakeith Stanfield, Emory Cohen, John Magaro, RJ Cyler, Alan Ruck, Scoot McNairy, and Meg Tilly (via Deadline).
