war machine

Brad Pitt is coming to Netflix! The film star stars in WAR MACHINE, a new Netflix original by writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom).

Brad Pitt stars as a four-star general who admirably commanded NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. Ntflix says that this film is an “an anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly.” Emory Cohen, RJ Cyler, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Anthony Hayes, John Magaro, Scoot McNairy, Will Poulter, Alan Ruck, Lakeith Stanfield, Josh Stewart, Meg Tilly, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley also star.

WAR MACHINE will be available on Netflix on May 26.

Leading experts such as Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson also contribute to the documentary.

THE MARS GENERATION will be available for streaming on May 5.

If you want someone to blame for the rise of Donald Trump, look no further than Roger Stone. GET ME ROGER STONE digs into the life of this political consultant, lobbyist, and strategist that everyone seems to hate (to be fair, he seems to hate everyone right back).

GET ME ROGER STONE will debut on Netflix on May 12.
