Netflix has released a new trailer for their $100 million dollar fantasy epic movie, Bright.
Bright is the most expensive Netflix original movie to date and takes place in a world where humans find themselves living alongside magical races such as orcs, faries, and elves.
The film features Will Smith as a human cop who gets partnered up with an orc (Joel Edgerton) as they try to find a powerful weapon which is described as “a nuclear weapon that grants wishes”.
Edgerton’s character is touted as a diversity hire as he is the first of his kind to join the police force. This could make for an interesting narrative beat as the trailer reveals that there is quite a bit of tension between the different races.
The movie is being directed by David Ayer (Training Day) with Max Landis having penned the script. Bright is set to debut on the 22nd of December exclusively on Netflix.
With many being disappointed with the recent Suicide Squad movie, which was also directed by Ayer, it would be interesting to see what he could do with the creative freedom that Netflix has given him.
