Abu Dhabi is preparing to be in the cinematic spotlight once again as Netflix releases the teaser trailer for its original film War Machine. While the Brad Pitt-starred film is centred around a US war in Afghanistan, the UAE capital was the chosen location to stand in for the conflict zone. The movie is based on the book The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan by Michael Hastings, which tells the story of an army general (Pitt) at the helm of the war. Rounding up the stellar cast are Tilda Swinton, Sir Ben Kingsley, Anthony Michael Hall and Topher Grace.

War Machine will be released on May 26 on Netflix. Also, don't miss the trailer for Blade Runner 2049.
