Arguably the biggest actor in Hollywood and the former other half of superstar power couple ‘Brangelina’ featuring Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has been lighting up the movies with his dazzling all American smile for just under three decades. With an Oscar, a BAFTA, two Golden Globes, an Emmy and the Volpi Cup to his name, along with over a hundred other award nominations there are few, if any, acting accolades which allude him — and rightly so.

If you loved him in Allied or The Big Short you’ll be dying to know the next Brad Pitt films where you can watch this Hollywood hunk in action. Unless you’re a die-hard Pitt-bull fan, you might not be aware what upcoming Brad Pitt releases there are set to be and what he's up to in 2017. So to help keep you on top of this chiselled chap‘s anticipated new movie releases, we've made a handy list of new & upcoming Brad Pitt films. From zombie sequels like World War Z 2, to Netflix original films like War Machine, the latest flicks from Brad Pitt should get fans of Angie and Aniston's favorite ex-cited for these movies coming out.

1. War Machine

  • Release date: May 26, 2017
  • Director: David Michôd
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter

Pitt plays Stanley A. McChrystal, a US Army General with a violent reputation. Based on the book by Michael Hastings called The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan, the movie adaptation is a satirical but also hard-hitting fictional version of the real events in the book. Only recently released, War Machine is now available to stream on Netflix and is currently rated 8.2/10 on IMDB.

2. World War Z 2

Comprising of a lot of the same cast as Allied, Pitt will be reprising his role as retired UN inspector Gerry Lane in what promises to be yet another post-apocalyptic zombie blockbuster. Little is known about the plot yet, though it's rumored World War Z 2 could set a great deal of its action in India, which was covered in depth in the original novel, but hardly at all in the first movie. And if you're not excited enough for the second one, Paramount have confirmed The World War Z movies are set to be a trilogy!

Marking his first foray back into the world of Science Fiction in over 20 years, Pitt will be starring in the upcoming film, Ad Astra which will begin filming this summer. Filmmaker James Gray will be taking the helm in what he's promised will be the “most realistic depiction of space travel that’s been put in a movie.” Pitt looks set to play the part of an engineer on the autistic spectrum whose father travelled on a one-way mission to Neptune to find signs of life on the planet. 20 years later, he then sets off to travel through space to find his Dad and find out what went wrong with his mission.
