Netflix’s first $100 million flick is a Game of Thrones/Bad Boys mash-up you don’t want to miss. Yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, Netflix dropped its first trailer for Bright which stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. Set in a futuristic and slightly disturbing version of Los Angeles, the film follows two cops one human (Smith) and one Orc (Edgerton) who team up to evade their fellow law enforcement officers, criminals and supernatural beings to protect a magic wand.
With Suicide Squad director David Ayer taking the reigns, Bright is bursting at the seams with witchcraft, explosions and car chases. It’s a fascinating spectacle that we can’t wait to dive into.
“Lord of the Rings, Warcraft, Game of Thrones—it’s that type of world, American mythic archetypal fantasy. But it takes place right now… Those worlds whatever they may have been, were biblical times… Everyone knows there was a dark lord and he rose and he fell and all the races united. Now you’re you, I’m me, that woman over there is a centaur and it’s not a big deal, “screenwriter Max Landis told GQ. “They’re not a big percentage of the population, there’s word of them becoming rarer and rarer and getting all sorts of hereditary diseases. But you know what? Until then, there’s a centaur billionaire, there’s a centaur CEO. Everyone knows orcs. Everyone knows goblins. Everyone knows elves and dwarves. All of these various races that live among us. Bright is ultimately about two guys who get themselves into a bad situation and need to rely on each other to get out of it… It’s a movie about brotherhood, friendship, and race.”
Bright will be released exclusively on Netflix on Dec. 22.
