Based on the book The Operators, the movie follows Pitt’s character a brash and unorthadox General sent into the clean up the mess that has become the eight year war in Afghanistan. 

The trailer plays like a screwball black comedy, with Pitt turning in a performance similar to that of his Inglorious Basterds character. It looks like a fun take on the political war drama genre.
