On the other hand, audiences on Rotten Tomatoes have it at 88% based on almost 14,800 user ratings. Basically, as is usually the case, it’s best to watch and decide for yourself.
No matter what the opinions of Bright are, it’s been a big hit for Netflix. According to them it’s one of the biggest originals they’ve ever launched, TV series included, and it had the highest-viewed opening week for an original film on the service. It’s also the top movie on Netflix in over 190 countries.
Because of all of this, Netflix has announced that a sequel to the movie is now in the works. More on this and a video to announce the sequel below.

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.
