At the beginning of this month, Netflix spotlighted Brad Pitt‘s role as United States Army general Glenn McMahon in the lead trailer for the company’s forthcoming original movie War Machine. Less than two months away from the film’s premiere, another clip in support of War Machine has emerged. The new teaser for Netflix’s upcoming war movie once again places Pitt’s portrayal of Army Glenn McMahon front and center, bringing to light the “roller-coaster rise and fall” of an embattled commander. ”At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed,” reads the film’s official description.

You can view the new trailer for David Michod’s War Machine above, while the film will debut on Netflix on May 26.
