Netflix is pushing their upcoming original movie Bright hard. And with good reason. It’s a big budget project, directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) and featuring an impressive cast which includes Will Smith (Bad Boys, Men in Black), Joel Edgerton (Black Mass, Warrior), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus), Edgar RamÃrez (Deliver Us from Evil, Wrath of the Titans), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad, Neighbors), Lucy Fry (11.22.63, Mr. Church), Margaret Cho (Drop Dead Diva, One Missed Call), and Jay Hernandez (Hostel, Suicide Squad).
It’s a movie you’d expect to see opening in theaters everywhere…if any big Hollywood studios would ever actually greenlight such a strange concept. The movie is set in an alternative history Los Angeles, in which humans live alongside mythical creatures like orcs, elves, and fairies.
Netflix has released a second official trailer for the movie, which you can find below along with a synopsis.
Netflix has released a new inside look featurette for Bright, their upcoming original movie directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) and starring Will Smith (Bad Boys, Men in Black) and Joel Edgerton (Black Mass, Warrior).
The movie is set in an alternate present day Los Angeles, where humans co-exist with fantastical creatures like orcs, elves, and fairies. You can read a little bit more about the movie and check out the new featurette below.
David Ayer knows how to tell a story about cops in Los Angeles. In fact, most of his films are about cops in the City Of Angels. So it comes as no surprise that Bright, his follow-up to Suicide Squad, features Will Smith as an L.A.P.D. officer. But what separates this particular film from the rest is that Smith’s character is partnered up with an orc named Jakoby (played by Joel Edgerton). That’s because Bright takes place in a world where humans co-exist with fairies, orcs, and other monstrous creatures that usually go bump in the night.
Though the two don’t get along at first, they are forced to put their differences aside when a magic wand surfaces, and everyone is out to get it so they can have their wishes granted. Check out the trailer here below.
Netflix has released a teaser for their fantasy-meets-reality original movie Bright, which stars Will Smith as a cop on patrol in an alternate present-day in which humans, elves, orcs, and fairies live among each other.
The movie comes from Fury and Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who re-unites with Smith for the project. The teaser is brief, only running a little over 30 seconds in length, but does include some good peeks at the strange and intriguing movie.

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.
